After graduating high school I envisioned my life events played out in a specific order. Becoming a mom in college was never in my plans. My plan was to finish college, start my career and not become a mom till my late twenties. But things do not always go according to plan. My first child […]
I never recognized the value of self-care until I had a child. Before I had my son, I exercised for an hour daily 6 days a week, I got my hair done every 8 weeks, I got a pedicure every 6-8 weeks, I visited with friends 1-2 times a week, I read for pleasure and […]

Whether you want it or not, breastfeeding advice is going to come your way. Some information may be ill advised and may be more of a myth than fact! 1. Small breasts produce less milk MYTH: this is simply not true. The milk your breasts hold have nothing to do with the size of the […]
Sleep and heat do not mix! Keeping cool on summer nights can be tough when it is hot out. And oh my it is H-O-T out! I can remember being a child and struggling hard to fall asleep in the summer in my hot bedroom. It was so frustrating! With all the sleep struggles out […]
Real talk, ladies. Adulting is hard. Motherhood can suck (for lack of a better word). And there are few things in the season of life with young children and career growth that make you want to burst out of your skin excited like an upcoming vacation. Even vacation at this stage is precarious – often […]

I’m a “goals-and-task” type of person, and I spend a lot of time thinking about how to be successful and how not to fall off track. This keeps me on an ultimate high – until I forget how to just relax and enjoy life. Mentally adjusting to motherhood has been a huge battle for me. You […]
We had the privilege of attending Goldfish Swim School with our 2 year old, Adella. She is our most spirited child but also the baby of the family. In typical birth order fashion, she is spoiled to the MAX. She gets what she wants and my husband can’t stand to see her cry. We had […]

While Christmas and Hanukkah may seem far off, planning and saving now can take the pressure off your wallet in the months to come. Here, we’re sharing our top tips for doing just that: Start with a number in mind. […]
I admit it; I can be fickle when it comes to the latest kitchen gadget. For a while I was all about the Spiralizer (do you have any idea how many veggies can be spiralized?) – until I realized how annoying it is to clean and how Publix sells already spiralized zucchini and butternut squash. […]
Let’s get ready to celebrate America! From where you can view the fireworks, delicious recipes, 4th of July safety and more, here’s your Week at a Glance!
I LOVE the 4th of July. Something about it just reminds me of summers growing up: family barbecues, campfires, nights at the lake, fireworks, waterskiing and eating more watermelon than my stomach could handle!
