Hair Glorious Hair Most of my life my hair has been a feature I have been proud of. I was teased because I wore it straight back in a tight ponytail as a girl. The boys loved the long wavy locks of my twenties. But it has always been the feature I loved. I did […]
Capsule wardrobe. Minimalism. Curated home. These aren’t “new” concepts, but thanks to Instagram and fashion bloggers they are currently trending. After the birth of my son, I knew I needed to downsize my closet and my life. I had an outfit (and throw pillow) for every occasion, but with burp clothes, teething toys, tiny socks […]
As I sit here and type this, I am exactly one week postpartum with my daughter. During this pregnancy, I only gained about 25 pounds, which I was fairly proud of and not overly concerned about. I also have just birthed two babies within a year’s time. To be exact, there were 320 days between […]
At the pool the other day, my 5-year-old son poked at me…right in my good ol’ mommy pooch. He giggled, I giggled, then I shrugged it off and chugged another beer (just kidding). But it did make me reflect on my pooch…what a ride it has been! This pooch and I have been together almost […]

Each one serves up a message of lofty inspiration to today’s woman. However, if you are anything like me, each one is also received with a twinge of guilt and confusion. They are good […]
When I first started reading about the importance of self care among mothers, I was thrilled. Women spending more time focusing on themselves and taking care of themselves? I’m all for it. But then I started reading some examples of how mothers were practicing self care and I became discouraged. Not because what was working […]

The Inevitable Aging. It’s unavoidable. It creeps up on us at the most inopportune times. One morning you wake up and, BOOM! Wrinkles. Little saggy lines and bags appear where the skin was once firm and glowingly radiant. Your bones start to ache and you aren’t quite as flexible as you remember. Getting out […]
We all know it can be hard to get up early and work out, with or without kids, single, married, dating, divorced, whatever. It can be hard to find energy to squeeze a quick workout into the day. It can also be hard to get up, work all day and then work out at night. […]
