Because THIS is a lifelong battle.” ****HUGE DEEP BREATH*** I knew it might not … Continue reading Being a Mom of Black Children in America.
May is a trifecta…. For my husband… Let me explain, My son’s birthday, my birthday, and mother’s day are all one week apart. As he described it (with a slightly terrified look in his eye), he has to be “on” for 3 weeks in a row. I guess we didn’t plan that one out very … Continue reading Gift Ideas For The Health Conscious Momma
My Baby is 3. He doesn’t feel like 3 to me, he feels like my little baby boy that I swaddle, snuggle, and rock to sleep. I don’t do that-rock him to sleep anymore-but I crave that time in our lives again. It’s so weird to have your kid grow. I feel like the minutes … Continue reading My Birth Story-Ezekiel is 3!

And, if I wasn’t born in Idaho then I most likely would have been born in Scandinavia…because, well, hygge. You’ve heard of that, right? If you’ve spent any amount of … Continue reading My Hygge Habits

Let me take you back to what prompted this question… I was on a walk with an awesome momma and the conversation turned to the ebb and flow of life and how to balance it all. Now, mind you, I don’t have it all figured out and I’m generally … Continue reading Is it Possible to Have it All?

I was speaking with my friend and mentor, Summer, the other day and … Continue reading Rose Oil, Lalita Sundari & Love
It kind of feels like a cliché but 'tis the season, right? I've written about the monkey in my head before and I usually refer to this monkey in a negative way-with bad self talk and overwhelming thoughts which leads to momXiety and the inability to move foreward. And while this bad little monkey still … Continue reading 5 Ways to Practice Gratitude
No one ever told me motherhood was so lonely. Like, really, really lonely. But the crazy part is that I’m never alone. I always have a kid or a dog or a husband that is around, filling up the space in the house. I am always surrounded by people, yet at times I feel pretty … Continue reading No One Ever Told Me Motherhood Was So Lonely
"You have a worried face" My friend and mentor said that to me the other day. I have a worried face. She's completely right and the evidence lives right between my eyes in a nice, getting deeper by the day, wrinkle. I have a worried face. How can you not?
