Our Miscarriage Story

I shared on my YouTube channel the loss of our 13 week pregnancy earlier this summer. You can see the video here if you missed it. As my little family and I worked through our loss, we decided to keep pushing forward and we’re happy to share our family of three is expanding to four. As of writing this post, I am now 20 weeks … Continue reading Our Miscarriage Story

Holiday Fever

I usually like this time of year, but lately I’m ready for it to be done. It’s probably because I was sick middle of November with a nasty chest cold and now I’m sure I have an ear infection and sore throat. I’m also exhausted. And I still have holiday shopping I need to do. Is it obvious I don’t want to do it? There … Continue reading Holiday Fever

Before It’s Too Late

Get ready because I’m about to get morbid. Death is my inspiration. I am literally dying as I write this. The same way you are literally dying as you read it. You’re in the future and I’m in the past. What we do during the time in between—and after—is up to us. Some pretend death is never coming and waste away the minutes doing thing … Continue reading Before It’s Too Late

You Had Me At Avocado

Back in June, I really committed to my health at last. I was doing fantastic before learning I was pregnant and I fell off my well established habit with the “I’ll get back to it later” mentality. After my son was born, I kept pretending that my unhealthy lifestyle was fine and only temporary. Then it hit me that my son was turning tow years … Continue reading You Had Me At Avocado

A Treasure Worth More Than Gold

A while back, I decided to get off of social media– Facebook, specifically. Ironic because I’m sure this is where you came across this post. My reason being is that it’s become a waste of time and a lot of “friends” shared nothing but bad news. It was taking a serious toll on my anxiety, I did what was best for me and deleted the … Continue reading A Treasure Worth More Than Gold

All You Need Is Joy

Every day is another opportunity to achieve my personal goals. Last night, my husband and I discussed motivation and how to work through slumps when you’re lacking it. While we both agreed it’s your drive to reach the end goal, even when your dead tired and just want to hide in bed all day, I also  believe it’s the little things that people often forget … Continue reading All You Need Is Joy

A Little Bit of Balance Goes A Long Way

There are three things that help keep me balanced: having a routine, talking with my husband, and being mindful of the present. Communication is key to any and every relationship. Without it, everything’s bound to crash and burn. If the relationship/friendship falls apart even though there was an open line of communication, then there was a deeper problem going on. But, that’s not where I’m … Continue reading A Little Bit of Balance Goes A Long Way

A Future So Bright: Some Things to Make Your Life Super Dope

By now, many have already failed to keep their resolutions for 2017. If you’re one of them, don’t beat yourself up too bad. There’s still plenty of time after reading this post to get on the right track. The choice to actually do so is all yours, though. Snotty, I get it, but the truth is far from being known as sensitive. Taking my own … Continue reading A Future So Bright: Some Things to Make Your Life Super Dope

A Little Game of Catch Up

No, I’m not dead. Forgive the spurt of posts then my sudden disappearance. School got the best of me, my philosophy class mainly, and my brain could only handle so much at once. This month felt like absolute mayhem. With classes coming to a close, I had essays, tests, and finals, piling one on top of the other along with our baby shower and us preparing for … Continue reading A Little Game of Catch Up
