“No” is the Word

I can't count how many times I've said, "no" since April was born. It's the word of the day, the week, the month, it's pretty much the word until further notice. I think I say it so much now that she mimics me when I do. She'll look at me, smile, raise her index finger… Continue reading “No” is the Word

Embracing My Mom Bod

I'm not going to lie, I've been hesitant about writing about body image because it's such a touchy topic for everyone.

My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)

It was the second year of college and I always felt so sad; physically present but not there mentally or emotionally. Was it depression? I had no idea, but it was a feeling that suffocated me. I thought it all started during my senior year of high school, however, I realized it started way before that.… Continue reading My Not-So-Great Teenage Years (Part 1)
