When my daughter was around one year old, she imprinted on a stuffed animal that became her best bud and another member of our family. A purple stuffed bear head and arms holding onto a small blanket started joining us on family outings, getting tucked in at night and making trips to the grocery store. […]

Board & Brush is a new DIY studio in town where you can create fun and unique wood decor projects from scratch while enjoying a fun instructor-led atmosphere.

We’re working really hard, but it’s easy to keep our family as our focus. My job isn’t overly demanding, and my husband is at home with our kids all but 12 hours per week. Our children aren’t involved in a bunch of extra-curricular activities because they’re one and four years old. Right now, my children […]
When my husband married me, he didn’t know he was signing up for a wife who throws fatigue-induced tantrums because our nearly-one-year-old son still doesn’t sleep through the night! He didn’t know his wife would be the pallbearer at my grandfather’s funeral. He didn’t know he’d have to love me through piles of laundry and […]
I remember when I was pregnant for the first time, everyone would say, “Being a mom is so hard, but so worth it.” Do you know what that kind of advice does for a mother-to-be? I’ll be bold here and say it does nothing. The word “hard” is thrown around like confetti when it comes […]

I enjoy putting together homemade Lunchables, so I can choose higher quality meat, cheese and crackers and also pack some fresh fruit as a side. I also switch up sandwiches by using different breads like tortillas, bagel thins and croissants.
Two precious children have made me a Mama: a three-year-old girl, Cora; and a six-month-old son, Freddy. For several reasons, my time breastfeeding Cora was short-lived, and I never had to breastfeed her outside of our home. Fortunately, the second time’s a charm and my breastfeeding journey with Freddy has been a natural partnership from […]
I’ve never been a stay-at-home mom. When I had my oldest, I was working full-time. I was only able to take six weeks off of work, then started back at my job and I’ve been working 40+ hours a week ever since. I had my second baby in January, I’m fortunate to work for […]
