July 20, 2014

My husband and I are currently in Turks & Caicos celebrating our babymoon, which is actually our very first vacation as a married couple, just the two of us.

Nesting in Calm and Comfort

July 16, 2014

The following post was sponsored by Belabumbum. I admit that generally speaking, I don’t make time for myself. I’m lucky to find a moment alone to use the restroom, or take a shower, or make it to the grocery store-a near luxury for this mother of three, almost four. Most times, I’m frustrated by the […]

July 3, 2014

My figure lately defines me in more ways than one. I’m watching where I walk and what I eat, things I read and which social situations I choose to show up to or not. Strangers have so much to say-pregnancy is such a magnified state of being that people are compelled to offer advise and […]

Weekend of Restoration

June 17, 2014

With the end of the kid’s school year and my trip to New York City falling within the same week, not to mention being nearly seven months pregnant has been emotionally chaotic to say the least.

Parenthood, the Bastion of Time

June 13, 2014

I have a handful of memories from my childhood, some of them I’ve recently learned are not actual memories but a fabrication of my imagination. Jack is approaching the second grade, and I can’t help but remember the summer that I turned seven and moved across the country to begin a new life in California, […]
