An Uncommon View

Do you want to hear something uncommon? Something that is not often said and is maybe even hard to say or believe? Children are a blessing. Motherhood is a blessing. I think it is all too easy to complain and focus on the hard things that come with having children and being a mama. And […]

No Days Off

My friend recently said to me, “I forget your pregnant because you never act like it.” It would be great to take this as a compliment: to be 8 months pregnant, and energetic enough so that other people don’t think of me as pregnant. Truthfully, though, I don’t have a choice. I’m already a mother […]

A Love Letter to my Facebook Moms Group

  I used to think “Facebook” and “motherhood” meant flooding my friends’ timelines with pictures of my kids. But as I’ve entered into motherhood, I’ve realized that Facebook is a much more complicated space- sometimes with really surprising benefits.  I have a few friends who have children, but my closest friends – the ones you […]

Cranberry Orange Punch

Move over Pumpkin Spice, Cranberry is in town! Bring me all the cranberries! It’s holiday time and I want nothing more than to eat all things cranberry.  According to Ocean Spray, Americans consume some 400 million pounds of cranberries each year, 20 percent of that during Thanksgiving week! It can also be noted that the cranberry […]
