The Beginning Of The End Of Nursing Forever

The Beginning Of The End Of Nursing Forever

I feel this is the beginning of the end of nursing forever. My daughter, my third and (most likely) last baby, will be 11 months old three days from today. Last night, she didn’t want to nurse. She wanted to suck her thumb instead. Raquel is my first thumb sucker, so this is new to me. I laid her in her crib, certain she would change her mind and want me to feed her. But she didn’t. She just went…

16 Things I Learned Since I Turned 20

16 Things I learned Since I Turned 20

It’s my sweet sixteenth anniversary of turning 20, and for some reason I’ve been thinking about how much change has happened since I was standing on the edge of not-quite-adulthood. The way I consider time and experiences has been the biggest shift. There is something so liberating about being in this stage of life, even though I’m quite literally, tied down in the most familial sense. You feel it, right? Yeah, I’m about to get philosophical. Here are 16 things…

New Year New Home

new year new home

It is with mixed emotions that I share the news that we are moving! I’ve been relatively quiet on social media and here on this blog throughout the holiday season not only because I was spending some down time with family, but also because I’ve been busy getting our new home ready for my family to move in.…

How My Style Has Changed Since I Became A Mom

Christian Louboutin Rainbow Glitter Disco 70s Ankle Boots

While you won’t find me in the much-memed “mom outfit” of leggings and a sweatshirt unless I’m at the gym, my style has subtly changed since having children. I hadn’t thought too much about this until I was previewing the Saks shoe sale the other day via text (so Xilennial) and my homegirl Marla sent me a pic of a pair of rainbow glitter Christian Louboutin So Kate’s. “Maybe in my twenties!” I wrote back. They were so me, that…

My Mental Health Journey

90s Polka Dot Silk Slip Dress

October is mental health awareness month, so in the spirit of erasing the stigma around mental health care, I want to share my mental health journey. Most of us are quick to go to the doctor when our bodies don’t feel well, but some of us are afraid to admit when we are having a difficult time mentally.…

5 Life Lessons We Can All Learn From Lizzo

5 Life Lessons We Can All Learn From Lizzo

Last night I experienced the immeasurable privilege of seeing Lizzo perform at Radio City Music Hall. I don’t think I am alone in feeling that Lizzo is inspiring in so many ways, through her music and her message of encouraging self love and self acceptance. She told us last night that her mission is to spread joy and love and feminism, and there is so much more we could learn from this strong, talented, woman. Here are 5 life lessons…

8 Things I Learned In 8 Years Of Marriage

8 Things I Learned In 8 Years Of Marriage

Today is my eight year wedding anniversary, and I realized at the beginning of the summer that I’ve been coupled with my husband Bryan for 13 years. We fell in love in 2006, became engaged in 2009, and married in 2011. In the last few years, we experienced a crash course in adulting: we moved to three different states, became parents, bought and renovated our first house, and had two more children. It has been a period of enormous growth…

Friday Finds

Raga Waiola Halter Maxi

This week brought us some exciting fashion news, I found not one but two pairs of perfect high waisted jeans, and a show I’ve been rooting for has proven it will not disappoint (no, its not Handmaids). Also, my daughter turned five months old and she has started yelling. She’s either imitating her brothers or letting us know she already wants to be heard. The Friday finds:…
