Sometimes being a mom means you put yourself on the back burner, but that can come back to bite you in the … well lets just say you may not be able to bite back!! It took over 10 years for me to realize that little fact. I talk about my experiences and what pushed […]
With mat leave coming to an end, I can feel my anxiety creeping up on me. I don’t know if I am ready to go back… or if I even want to go back! I really wanted to share with all the new parents out there what I went through my first week back to work.
Looking back on the past seven months, I’ve had to face some truths about myself. In more ways than one I am extremely blessed. Lucky. Fortunate. The human body is such a miracle and the changes that a woman’s body instinctively makes to support new life is nothing short of incredible. So I confess. I […]

A husband, 3 kids (18,11,10), 2 dogs 3 goats, twenty…. three chickens and now a newborn baby! Needless to say, life was seeming pretty overwhelming and as an introverted person, I had no problem following my newborns lead of sleep, eat, sleep!
