Running in Stilettos

In some ways it feels like it has been a New York minute since I last posted! So much life has happened in a short amount of time. Lyla turned ONE, if you can believe that! I certainly can’t! We had so much to celebrate with all the love and light she has brought into […]

The Everyday Mama

My birth story starts 3.5 years ago at the birth of my first daughter, Josephine. I had an unexpected cesarean following an intervention filled labor (see my first birth story). As I was being wheeled back for my cesarean I immediately knew I wanted to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) for my next.  Shortly after […]

TURNED TO ME When you were down you turned to me Its something that I’ll never forget I’ll be the healer in your life If you let me you won’t regret. When you were so vulnerable You thought that you would break apart But you turned to me to take you On a path straight into my heart. With your emotions […]

My Life as a Tumbleweed

It’s been two years and a few months since my son, Kevin died. It’s still almost impossible to talk about. I’m only writing about it to try to free myself, so I can really live again. My disclaimer with anything I write is that I cannot speak for everyone (or anyone) who is grieving. I […]

Sigh…why is it so difficult to find someone that can drive a Uhaul truck for someone that doesn’t have thier license? U haul closes at 7pm…time is short. And it will be ANOTHER day that my friend hasn’t been able to move. It just keeps getting dragged on for weeks, because NO ONE will volunteer […]

All About Abigail

I swear, that look that your toddler gives you right after you get to daycare; when you put them down and you have to walk away as they start bawling with their arms reached up for you to hold them… It’s TERRIBLE. Absolutely and utterly terrible. I have always said I don’t think I could […]

Candy Crush Saga, HomeScapes and Design Home are three games I love to play. The first is for the love of candy (lol). But the other two are actually about designing a home.

Color Me Culturally Confident

7 Reasons to Study Cultures Around the World What I share today is inspired by my dear, small town, untraveled Grandma Smith, who has been the only person bold and kind enough yet to just come out and say, “I don’t get it – what the point of your blog is.” Probably a lot of […]
