A Tale of Two Birth Stories

A Tale of Two Birth Stories

After the birth of my first son, Lachlan, I carried a lot of shame and guilt. I’ve never shared his full birth story like I had planned because it remains deeply personal and very much an experience that monumentally changed my life. But after giving birth to Everett, our second son and newest family addition, […]

Thoughts On Becoming A Mama To Two

Thoughts On Becoming A Mama To Two

We are days away from welcoming our second baby to the world. I’m full of so many emotions! Being a parent, or rather being a mother since that’s all I can relate to, is an interesting demographic to be an active participant of. I find mothers to be some of the most emotionally driven, openly […]

Lachlan’s Toddler Room and Our In Home Maternity Session

Lachlan’s Toddler Room and Our In Home Maternity Session

It’s funny how a second pregnancy can feel so different from a first. Before finding out we were expecting this second baby I heard a lot from friends and even strangers about how different a second pregnancy and baby can be. And I didn’t really understand how vast the differences were until I went through […]

Belly Birth Hospital Bag Essentials / PART TWO

Belly Birth Hospital Bag Essentials / PART TWO

The feedback on last week’s belly birth hospital bag essentials post was encouraging and heartwarming. It seems to me there are a lot of mamas out there dealing with grief and guilt over their unplanned or emergency c section deliveries. So I consider it both a joy and honor to help give even the tiniest bit […]

Belly Birth Hospital Bag Essentials / PART ONE

Belly Birth Hospital Bag Essentials / PART ONE

I’ve never shared Lachlan’s birth story and for a variety of reasons. Mostly, it was a traumatic experience that ended in an emergency surgery delivery and for a first time mom who had high (very high) expectations of how her first birth would go, it was an emotional burden to process (not to mention a […]

It’s Not About Managing Your Time

It’s Not About Managing Your Time

I believe it’s about managing your priorities, expectations, and self. There’s a doozy of literature out there about managing time, balancing life, and juggling modern day commitments as a woman. I’ve read many books, blog posts, and listened to my fair share of podcasts on the subject. And like most things, the common thread is […]

How I Manage Motherhood with Running a Business

How I Manage Motherhood with Running a Business

For me, I firmly believe part of the beauty of being a parent is that my role to my child is constant and always changing, presenting yes, a challenge but one I happily accept head on. Nothing feels stagnant or set in stone in this role, which makes my other roles in life, like being […]

Fourth of July Inspiration

To catch the joyful circus of managing a business with busy toddlers, click here for a behind the scenes video. A lot of the content I share involves having my son and Sam’s kiddos at our feet. While we both believe we get our respective jobs done really well, it’s usually (and sometimes unknowingly) with the […]

Not Now Doesn’t Mean Never Again

Not Now Doesn’t Mean Never Again

I have this vivid vision, sometimes more than a few times in one week. It’s of me standing in a nondescript hallway with one door to my left and one to my right. As I stand in the hallway snug between both doors, I find myself confused. Both doors reveal people and adventures and things […]

Tips for Travelling with Toddlers

Tips for Travelling with Toddlers

To any fellow mamas out there who have travelled with their kiddos, I salute you! I’ve had the pleasure (read: some experiences have not been at all close to pleasurable) of travelling via plane with Lachlan a number of times in his 2.3 years of life. We started travelling with him at 8 weeks old […]
