Dare! Take A Date Night!

As a relatively new mom (I’m only 18-months into this and still learning a lot), I have wondered how other parents had achieved this infamous “date night” I’d kept hearing about. The only time we’ve had a night out was if our amazing friends or family offered themselves up for the taking, or it was […]

Let's All Be Cheerleaders

Let’s All Be Cheerleaders

Something I’m hearing a lot about nowadays is this gross trend of mom-shaming or mom-judging. You know – someone [most often a complete stranger] says something to you about your parenting, obviously convinced they are doing you/your kid/the world a HUGE service, which makes you feel like a garbage person in the process. Most of the […]

Reflecting on my Last Thirty Years… Mom Edition

Last month something monumental happened in my life… I turned 30. This is something I had been dreading basically since I turned 21 a decade ago. Wasn’t I just turning 25 and celebrating a quarter of a century? Cue all of the balloons/tears/wine. For whatever reason, as a woman, 30 seems to be the “big […]

Alcohol Awareness Month: What are you running to?

April is National Alcohol Awareness Month, which causes me to take a not-so-fond journey down memory lane. It’s likely that I’m the only writer for this blog to have been through an “intervention.” Not as a participant, but as the focus of one. I’ve been sober for two years and while the detour my life […]
