I’m so, so thrilled to be expecting my second child, due in mid-June. So far, the biggest surprise of this pregnancy is how much more difficult it has been than my pregnancy with my son, now just over two-years-old. Now, please don’t get me wrong. I know some women have pregnancies filled with complications or […]

If you’re anything like me, you probably ate all the food between Christmas and the New Year. I’m so looking forward to my kids going back to school and for me to go back to work, so I can get back to my normal fitness and nutrition routine. I have some easy on the go […]

As moms, we’re often in charge of juggling all the house-hold duties and decisions when it comes to our family’s schedule, which becomes even more complicated during the holidays. We all know that holiday time can be magical. But this time of year often brings with it disrupted schedules, higher levels of stress, and less-than […]
2017 is winding down, and soon we will see all the “New Year, New You” ads and promotions; it’s invariably time to start thinking about where we have been, where we are now and where we are going. Let’s face it, even if we get tired of seeing the same slogans each year, ultimately we […]
Sandy Hook, Orlando, New York, Texas, and Charleston. I don’t even have to say why I’m naming these cities for you to understand. I can’t help but think that these tragedies (not these alone) will go down in history books and one day, I will have to explain these things, these absolutely horrific events to […]
Ever have a case of imposter syndrome? I feel like as moms, sometimes we try to be perfectionists or superwoman—trying to make the holidays the best ever for your kids, trying to do it all at work and home, and feeling like a failure when you can’t do it all. Wikipedia defines imposter syndrome as, […]
Some days are better than others. We understand that and have lived that our whole lives; we know that some days we are cruising along, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, we’re belting out our favorite song and we have everything going our way. And then other days we feel like a splattered […]
I had my daughter a week before my 37th birthday – so I’m a little bit of an older first-time-mom. And maybe it’s with several years of business ownership, personal and professional development experience, big responsibilities and life lessons behind me that I’ve come to realize I have a less-than-typical perspective on life. For a […]
As a mama of 2 boys, the holidays can be exhausting! I love the family time together, the traditions and the food (oh, the glorious food!), but I’m not crazy about the overindulging & totally getting off track with my fitness and the guilt that comes with that. So, I have made the decision to […]
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 […]
Raise your hand if you LOVE The Children’s Museum. If you’ve ever been to a children’s museum in another city, chances are it has seriously confirmed for you how lucky we are here in Naptown. Have you heard about The Children’s Museum’s new Riley Children’s Health Sports Legends Experience? If you’ve been to the museum […]

I was at Kid City at the Greenwood Community Center the other day (side note: absolutely amazing, cheap place to take a kiddo!) and I overheard a conversation that was pretty familiar for me. To set the scene: Two little ones are playing in the same vicinity as (presumably) their parents look on: “She’s so […]
