I’ve always been the girl that wants to succeed at everything I do. During this chapter of life, the things I choose to invest my energy into are, in no particular order: motherhood, being a devoted wife, my career, spending time with friends, my faith, running or other types of fitness activities, and the seemingly […]
Dear Momma, This letter is to express the gratitude that is not always given. You do so much for everyone and find a way to ensure that everyone’s needs are met before your own. Not everyone could do your job, but you find a way to do it with grace. You make sure those lunches […]
Lately, all through my newsfeed, I have been seeing videos, posts, memes, etc. about moms needing to wear more appropriate bathing suits or the lack of “mom appropriate ” swim attire. When I read these I feel like I’m being judged, or that I should feel wrong rocking my bikini. I shouldn’t and neither should […]

Tonight as I awaited in the drive thru at my favorite Saturday restaurant, I watched a mom load her child into the car and then get in the car herself. As I was still waiting, I saw her pull up to another empty parking space and get out of her car to buckle her child […]
As moms, we all know what kind of mom I am referring to…….. The mom that looks at the young mom and gives a little smile. The mom that sweetly smiles and giggles as you discipline your child in the store, and just watches you. The mom that offers to help you with your bag, […]
I am lucky enough to have a job where I can drop my son off at school before heading into work. But there are some days where I really could use a helping hand from one of the other mamas who are dropping their kiddos off, too. Let’s set the scene. It’s pouring rain and […]
GASP. I went against the grain. The trend. The YES days and weeks and moments that blogs and Google parenting articles tell us mamas to have. Having a YES day is what we are supposed to do, right? You know, when we say YES to everything, to our kids dietary requests, to their desire to […]
