Internet Trolls: My Annoying Co-Workers

“You need a boob job.” Blanketed by the security of anonymity, Internet Trolls relish in polluting Blog comment feeds, Instagram photos, and Facbook statues with their nasty, spiteful comments. They are yesterday’s news and definitely nothing new. Or so I thought. Until they happened to me. I’ve been blessed by an extremely supportive group of friends and family, and have been humbled to witness that support extend to …

I Get By With A Little Help From My Mama Tribe

Ahh, the Mama Tribe (otherwise known as my Mama Lifeline). I met the first members of my Mama Tribe when my baby girl was 8 weeks old. We had all signed up for a New Mother’s group at a local breastfeeding store. I was terrified that first day, and it turns out they were, too. We quickly got acquainted and spent the next 2 months sharing the …

Relentlessly Real – Postpartum Anxiety

Can we get something straight? I don’t have my shit together. Let’s just start there. Since I launched this blog in May of last year, I’ve gotten emails from other mamas praising me for “doing it all.” Some even say they are inspired by me, and hope they can someday have their shit together, too. I always try humbly to take the compliment, while promising that, although it can …

Gone To The Beach

We made it! Traveling with a toddler is definitely entertaining and a lot more interesting than traveling with an infant. I’m so grateful my mom and husband were there to help. It was a long day, but oh so worth it the second our feet hit the sand. Day 1 is in the books. xo

2016

2015 was a transformative year for me. I learned so much more about who I am as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister. And while I love being a stay at home mama to my baby girl, I also set out on an adventure to find myself again, and to find what makes me happy. This blog was born out of that adventure. I can’t thank you enough for supporting …

Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Looks of the Year

Wow, I sure do like to get dressed up. It was fun to go through all of the looks I’ve put together since I started this gig in May. And it was so tough to pick my 10 favorite! But since I love a good year end review, I got it done. 🙂 I’ve included shoppable links below each pic (a lot of the summer styles are …

Christmas Moments

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! Ours was filled with love, family, great food, and a lot of time spent chasing after baby girl! We enjoyed a trip to the Botanic Gardens to see the trains on Christmas Eve, Christmas Eve church service, and a walk to the park on a warm Christmas day. We didn’t take many photos (oops), but here are a …
