As a germaphobe, I thought I would be prepared for a pandemic. Going into the chaos of the Winter blues earlier this year to a full-blown pandemic has really been eye opening. I live with something called mysophobia. It’s essentially a fear of germs, like an extreme fear, while others may think my mental illness is silly or annoying, it’s something I battle with everyday and it is real. Some suffer from fibromyalgia, or a even a Hypersexuality, and while we take those things seriously, I feel like my fear of germs is often overlooked as just a weird quirk and a get over it mentality.Continue reading Mental Load: My Coronavirus Thoughts
Woohoo happy 2020 everyone! Another decade down.
A lot has happened this year, the birth of my daughter in February, I got a part-time job-like for a moment, and my son turned two in July. Umm, some weird events of 2019 is that it snowed, like i’m talking over 5 inches of fresh powder on Halloween and was warm on Christmas, WHAT! We celebrated almost all of babies firsts and the biggest obstacle of 2019 was that I finally felt strong enough to admit to my family and I am now comfortable with sharing it here, that I am suffering from some pretty intense depression and anxiety.Continue reading 2019 Reflection

Food is everything in this household. Well, maybe this is just true for me, but we recently started London on solids and…she loves it! Parker was the worst ever when it came to eating his first foods, but London, she absolutely loves it. Everything I have given her has been a winner. She’s had, strawberries, avocado, banana, sweet potato, applesauce, apple sweet potato, apple mango and apple carrot. We spoon feed her or let her go to town with her Moss and Fawn Forage feeder and there has been zero refusal.Continue reading Starting solids-round II

Like a snowflake, everyone has different parenting styles. Instead of judging and criticizing, we need to embrace this difference and we would be much better for it.
Take peoples comments like a grain of salt, because after all, you are the mom/dad, not them. This is something I struggle with and I know I am not alone. It’s hard to get criticized, Continue reading Parenting Styles
I have been totally M.I.A lately and apologize, but I have had such a creative block and honestly I have just been soaking up all of my babe before he turned the big ONE! From party planning, his 1st birthday party to our little family vacation and even starting a new “job”, we have been quite busy over here. Not to mention a little regression on the whole sleeping through the night thing [please send coffee]. Anyways, for anyone who wants to read all about what we have been up too, keep on reading!

Happy New Years lovelies! To sum up 2017 in a few short words is easy. But explaining how insanely difficult yet beautiful it has been, is much more hard. So I will say this… Being pregnant and becoming a mom, I am forever changed and better for it. And I am so, so dang grateful for all my accomplishments last year.
