• This is 34.

    March 4, 2018

    Hello lovelies. I’ve recently completed another trip around the sun. Birthdays have always been a strange thing for me as I’m one of those rare Leap Year babies (or as my friend Ian would say, I’m a Leapling) and people never quite know on those non-leap years when I celebrate. Truth be told, I never…

  • They’re right: Time’s up.

    January 18, 2018

    Hello lovelies. I have a confession: I wrote this blog over a week ago. I felt inspired to say something but then my familiar friend, fear, crept in and I was unsure if I could actually say how I was feeling. As you read in my last blog I have been struggling through the start…

  • I see you, 2018.

    January 5, 2018

    Hello lovelies. It’s been a while since we’ve connected. Lauren and I have been spending much needed family time over the past several difficult weeks. Maybe one day we will share more about this as it deserves a post of its own. In the meantime…we’ve been reflecting. 2018. Whoa. What will you have in store…

  • Happy is the new busy.

    October 24, 2017

    Well hello there, lovelies. Do you know the most common responses I hear when I ask the people in my life how they are doing: “I’m busy”, “We are busy” or “Life is so busy”.  We are all guilty of it, yet we continue to fill our plates with more and more obligations because the…

  • Gratitude changes everything.

    October 10, 2017

    Happy Tuesday, lovelies. We hope your stomachs and your hearts are full after the long weekend. I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. For me, it is such a reflective time where we are encouraged to stop and really understand the power of gratefulness. In keeping with this theme I thought I would share one…

  • Balancing life while fumbling with guilt.

    October 4, 2017

    Well hello, lovelies. I’ve come to learn that times of great transition can often be times for great emotional unrest. No different than when I gave birth, my transition back to work has been quite consuming. It’s been an unrehearsed ballet of trying to be the best employee, the best mom, the best wife, the…

  • To my pre-baby self: be gentle.

    September 22, 2017

    As my year being at home with my baby recently wound down to a close and I returned to work (an entirely separate post of its own), I have spent many hours reflecting on what this year has looked like for me. With each new season of motherhood that I enter into I discover new…

  • Change is Hard.

    September 16, 2017

    Hello lovelies. I’m certain I always knew this, but this is something that has become so clear to me in the past few years: change is hard. No matter what that change may be – moving to a new home, changing jobs, embarking on a healthy new lifestyle or letting go of relationships that no…

    September 14, 2017

    Hello Lovelies. Let’s talk baby gear…Walking into a West Coast Kids or Babies R’us these days can be pretty overwhelming. There are SO many ‘things’ out there for babies it is really difficult to determine what you will actually need and use. When I was pregnant with our first son I got pretty overwhelmed (the…
