The end

I am going away March 22 with my soul sister for 2 nights for the first time ever. This should be on the news because I haven't left my babies since they've been born/ not by choice per say, but I've literally been nursing for 4 years of my life. Jules was born in June… Continue reading The end

Seasons of Life

Life can be so crazy sometimes. I mean CRAZY- kids, jobs, money, balance, trying to be healthy, marriage, etc. How does anyone stay sane? I really would like to know how anyone stays sane these days.

I just need a minute…

When you're a mom- stay at home mom or working mom, you literally never stop. When people around you say they are exhausted, half the time you want to clock them and say- you don't even know.

Fast forward 7 years and I am running 2-3 half marathons a year and a handful of 5K's and 10K's. If you don't like… Continue reading How to Get Started with Running

Be you

In a world with so much chaos, social media, social expectations and not enough time, it's never been more important to be yourself- be in the moment with your children, your friends, your family, your husband/wife. For the love of God I am so damn guilty of it. I am trying to do the next… Continue reading Be you

I see you mama

I see you. I see you working all the time... being a mama, a teacher, a full time worker, a wife, a communicator, a good friend. I see you trying to be the best. I see you waking up early to immediate anxiety of having to get the kids up and ready for school/daycare. I… Continue reading I see you mama
