Stepping OUT!


I want to thank ALL OF YOU for the sweet messages and kind words and GOOD MOJO that you sent my way this week. When I announced that I’m stepping away from Channel 11 to do new things, I got so much encouragement from people who said that life is short and you need to seize opportunities and take risks! Change is exciting and scary. I have felt ALL THE EMOTIONS these last 6 months…

Birthday Boy!


My husband is not the same person I married. For one, I did not know he was so good at demo-ing houses. He never told me he knew how to build stud walls. Nor did he share that he could hang drywall… And mud and tape it. He knows how to wire a house for electrical. And he built me a brand new kitchen. Oh…and he’s also passing all this good stuff on to our…

The Dating-Like Ritual of Finding #MomFriends


Finding #MomFriends is so hard! My sister has to be my #MomFriend because we’re related and our mother would yell at her if she wasn’t. But finding your tribe of Momma friends isn’t easy. I kinda think it’s like dating and we’re all on a Tinder playground swiping left and right as our kids play. Henry is almost two and a half. He wants to play with other kids, and I want him to play…

The First Year You SURVIVE, The Second You THRIVE!


Oh, what a difference a year makes! Our sweet boy, Henry, just turned 2 and it was a SWEET birthday indeed. No longer are we the sleep-deprived parents who feel like a shell of their former selves. No longer am I a nursing Momma with a baby attached at the boob. No longer is Henry a 2-a-day napper, but just a good, solid napper from 1 to 3 pm. On his first birthday, I felt…

When it’s GOOD ENOUGH!


Trying to be perfect is exhausting and, honestly, if you achieved perfection…you would be annoying and not someone I’d want to hang out with. HA! My current motto is “That’s GOOD ENOUGH!” What I mean by that is some days I’m feeling great. I’m well rested, Henry is a happy little peanut and I’m able to take him to the library, playground, water park and do the laundry with ease. But other days…and there are…

Grateful for YOU


We are still moving along with our home renovation…new French doors just put in FOR THE WIN!! But I was thinking the other day about how there is SO MUCH MORE going on in my life than just the renovation and how I’m longing to SHARE IT! The stuff that’s going on is more of the spiritual realm stuff. Books I’m reading and podcasts I’m listening to that are helping me TAP IN TO WHO…

Body After Baby!


I get lots of questions about my fitness routine during and after my pregnancy…especially how I got back into shape after I had Henry. I’m totally fine with those questions, I even welcome them, because I can be pretty vain and I was VERY CONCERNED about gaining weight during pregnancy. There are women stronger and more evolved than I, but I’m one of those women who struggles with body image and places a good chunk…

One of THOSE Moms


I joke with my friends that I’m gonna be one of those National Geographic moms who breastfeeds their kid forever. Henry is almost 14 months and still nursing exclusively. (He also eats like a grown man and would’ve eaten his entire birthday cake if we let him!) There was a moment when I thought I should wean him because I didn’t want other people to think I was weird. Can I just tell you…I’M SO…

New Year, Better Us


I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions but I am going to try something this year. For 2018, we’re going to set an “intention” for our family. And this intention is going to be a guide post for how we live our life this year. I’ve been feeling an energy in my soul over the last few months and it’s saying “have no fear.” Do not let fear rule your life, make your decisions, influence…

We Survived The 1st Year!


Our sweet baby Henry is now 1. I can’t believe it…it was the fastest year of my life! I’m not the greatest mom in the history of the world, but I’ve learned a few gems that I now live by and want to share. Henry has eaten his fair share of dirt, leaves, rocks and yucky stuff at the playground…and he is fine! We don’t let him make a meal of it, but it’s impossible…
