Hopes and Dreams.

“You’ll understand when you have a kid of your own.” My husband and I have had this discussion so many times.

Pets & Babies.

Fur babies. That’s what we call our pets before we have little human babies of our own. As a pet owner, I would post pictures of my dogs like they were kids.

Others don’t even acknowledge the holiday. Personally, Michael and I are the low key celebrators. I will admit that I am way more…

The Comparison Trap.

We are our own worst critics. It’s true. We tend criticize everything we do– maybe it wasn’t good enough or we did it wrong. Whatever. This is especially true when it comes to being a mom. There is so much information out there. So many voices and opinions that swirl around us. We never think…
