Selfishness: how it serves my family and makes me a stronger woman

I have a post-it note on my refrigerator right now that says “Stop Apologizing.” I wrote it pre-baby and have carried this reminder in some format much of my adult life. I was the girl who apologized when someone ran into me and the one that prefaced everything I said in hopes of preventing someone’s […]

Entering a Season of Rest

It’s been a tough year…or two or three. My definition of rest has changed, especially since having a child. I have fond pre-motherhood memories of actually taking a nap on the couch to get some rest. I used to spend my weekends resting after a long week at the office by lounging around in my […]

Give Peace a Chance

I’ve never really been a fan of “themes.” You’d never guess it, since I’ve thrown some pretty epic theme parties in my days (read: “Tour de Franzia”). But it’s true–I don’t like “theme-decorated” rooms or “theme-dinners” or “theme-weeks” at school or work. In fact, it’s pretty difficult for me to settle on just one “theme” […]

Behind Every Good Mom is a Man Who Does the Dishes

There is nothing I hate more than waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes. It sets the tone for the whole day and it’s almost as if the dishes are mocking me when I come down the stairs and see them sitting there waiting to be cleaned. “Oh you need a knife to […]

Dumb Dads

An Open Letter: Can We Stop Making Fathers Look Dumb?

Dear Advertising Agencies, Marketing Strategists, and Media Organizations, Can you please stop representing fathers as dumb? It’s really driving me and all of my fellow mom friends crazy.  I get that dads can have dumb moments, sure, but don’t we all?  (Please tell me that I’m not the only one who has looked all over […]

Local & Unique Father’s Day Gifts

Father’s Day is right around the corner (June 19th). After many years of giving similar gifts, or items that were only used once or twice,  I decided to research some different options to find some things husbands and baby daddys will be sure to love.  Some are experiences rather than tangible items, and some are […]

Infertility: The Second Child

We hear a lot about infertility these days.  Everybody knows somebody struggling to get pregnant.  It seems like an epidemic with our generation.  And let me tell you from experience, the struggle is real. I talked about it here, but there’s a part of this journey people don’t seem to talk much about and it’s […]

Mixed Feelings: The Joy and Grief of Motherhood

I really love being a mom, I do. I love it more than I had ever anticipated I could. I take and post about a million pictures of my smiley, handsome, bright, mind-blowingly awesome little boy. Unapologetically so. I’m sure I’m guilty of portraying motherhood as all smiles and delight. Romantic images of snuggles and […]

Passport for One – Why I don’t feel guilty traveling solo

Dropping my daughter off at school knowing I wouldn’t see her again for a week was harder than I expected it to be. The last time I was traveling without her for a week she had broken her tibia and fibula two days prior so I had some anxiety about leaving. I text my husband […]
