New Mom, Who Dis? I never thought I would care about breastfeeding. My mom had trouble breastfeeding, so I was formula-fed. And as I went into motherhood, I didn’t think that I would be able to breastfeed either. I had fully accepted that before my son was born in January 2016. While it was not […]

What was life like a decade ago? Ten years ago, I had just finished the first semester of my junior year of college. I had spent the summer in Ecuador teaching English, and I was gearing up for a year of student observation and eventual student teaching. The same sort of questions were floating around […]

I did not grow up as an organized person. Sure, I loved the idea of being organized and writing everything down; but in practice I just wasn’t good at it. It’s just not a skill that I learned growing up. And that’s ok. But it’s something that I have worked very hard in my adult […]

In the world of photographs, our phones have become the number one way most of us take pictures and videos. And while using our phones for taking pictures is incredibly convenient, the editing software that comes with phones is just not fabulous. So while I obviously recommend getting professional pictures taken on a regular basis, […]

They say that when women support other women, incredible things happen, and I firmly believe that. Over the last few years, I’ve really started following more and more fellow women (many of whom are small business owners) and trying to spend my time and energy learning from them. Don’t get me wrong; I still follow […]

What a difference a year can make. 2018 was a year of heartbreak, of healing, and of celebration. It’s been the year where I feel like I truly found my voice. I started the year heartbroken over having trouble expanding our family. I had found out that I wasn’t ovulating, obviously making it quite difficult […]

Well I guess I’m not hiding how old I am anymore. This September I’ll turn 30, and I’m actually pretty excited about it. After the year that I had last year, I’m honestly just grateful for the ability to have another birthday and to continue to watch my family grow. I’ve done a lot of […]

Every couple and family has a story. The beauty of life is that each story is unique, regardless of how similar they may seem sometimes. My husband and I met in high school, and our two best friends (who also happen to be a couple) also met in high school. While our stories may have […]

Getting engaged is so exciting – the dress shopping, celebrating with friends and family, daydreaming of that amazing day. But planning a wedding can be a stressful endeavor. We all want stress-free days, but how do we even begin to accomplish that? Here are a few tips and tricks to make sure that your day […]

The journey to pregnancy is crazy. Like really crazy. I’ve had two extremely different experiences getting pregnant. The first time around was the experience that I truly believe everyone who wants to be a parent deserves to have. We decided that we wanted a baby, we did some other things required to get pregnant, and […]
