Be Brave

  As I’ve been observing my toddler’s budding personality, I have found that parenthood has this sometimes bizarre side where you watch aspects of yourself outside of yourself.

Mom Life

Learning to Bloom

  "Bloom where you're planted" or "Love the skies you are under." These are both great old adages which I'm not the best at. I've been feeling that itch again. The need for a change, a distraction. I was the worst at following this itch of mine in college. If I ever felt like I... Continue Reading →
