Motherhood at 7 months 

Wow!! E turned 7 months old yesterday. I can’t believe it. I have come SO far as a mom in these last 7 months and E has come SO far as a baby. Our bond just keeps getting stronger. E literally changes by the hour. Today she started rolling back-to-tummy in both directions. She has been really working at it for the last week … Read More Motherhood at 7 months 

Swing sets and liquid lipstick…

We took E to the park yesterday and she went on the swing for the first time. We really weren’t sure if she was quite old enough yet but once she was in the bucket seat she was pretty content. She was also pretty ambivalent about the whole ordeal. I’m not sure but I’m thinking it has something to do with the fact we … Read More Swing sets and liquid lipstick…

Running Mama (and babe)

E and I braved the wind and headed out for a run this morning. I’m literally a month behind on our training schedule and our race is in less than 8 weeks. But, it’s ok, its been a rough start to 2017 in the way of sickness. Has anybody else had the longest lasting cold ever this year?  We have no time goals for … Read More Running Mama (and babe)

There is something incredibly freeing when you choose not to care about what people will think. It’s like letting go of a massive weight that holds you back.  It’s funny how becoming a parent has helped me to overcome that barrier and truly do what makes me happy, and not let the barriers I have self manifested stop me. Why? Because I want to … Read More Vulnerability

Bedroom Makeover 

Recently I decided to do a refresh on our bedroom. We finished our upstairs Reno about a year and a half ago and our whole decor has changed- we chose light Grey themes, with beautiful white chunky trim. In short, our bedroom set is a dark espresso brown, so I’m hunting for a new look featuring a lighter, cleaner look. In the meantime, I … Read More Bedroom Makeover
