QuaranTotally Losing It?!

It’s been a while since I’ve taken to the time to actually sit down and write, other than some recipe and craft posts. I love writing and sharing those, but when I can sit down and write from my soul about real feelings and what’s been on my heart, it feels so refreshing. I will […]

Potty Training: 101

I swear, this was probably the most challenging part of motherhood to date LOL. I think I expected it to be a little easier than I thought so maybe that didn’t help me. I also felt like it was more emotionally draining than I thought it would be as well. But when I look back […]

The Best Version of Myself

Throughout my blog I’ve touched on some pretty deep emotions, but I haven’t shared too much on my postpartum journey when it comes to health and wellness. When I had Carter it took me a very long time to not only be comfortable again in my own skin, but also to feel good about my […]

Trusting Your Gut & ALWAYS Being Aware

When I started this blog, I never knew how far it would take me. I thought I would mostly be writing about mom life which I normally do, and love! I have been able to use this blog to also write about my own experiences both the good and the bad. This post is about […]

Building A Home

I remember being a little girl, and imagining building a house one day. When you’re young, you think it’s a piece of cake to just put a few walls together, choose some paint colors, and BAM your dream home is built! I remember I wanted an indoor pool, a huge flower garden, a separate house […]

“JUST a Stay at Home Mom”

It’s been one of those days. And I feel a little ridiculous for even saying that because I’m sure I’ve had harder days as a mom. But for some reason today hit me hard. I cried probably just as much as Payton did, and I didn’t get one single thing done on my to do […]

Helping You and Your Toddler Transition With a New Baby

It’s been three weeks since our little Payton entered this crazy world! It has been quite the adjustment being a stay-at-home mom with two kids, but I think we are finally getting the hang of things. I will be totally honest, for the first couple weeks it was absolutely “survival mode.” As in one day […]

Payton Jeanne: Birth Story

“For this child I have prayed, and the Lord has granted the desires of my heart.” 1 Samuel 1:27 The last week of my pregnancy I was pretty grouchy… just being honest! I was so uncomfortable, barely sleeping, and the waiting game was driving me a little nuts. I kept telling myself I knew Payton […]
