Yes, I’m still breastfeeding

While this year’s World Breast Feeding Week has come to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last 4 years I’ve spent as a mother. Breastfeeding has been such a huge part of that.

The bond was incredible and while it wasn’t always the easiest journey (more about that here & here), our breastfeeding relationship lasted 26 months just in time […]

Now, y’all, this kid is dairy-free, soy-free, & never eats junky food coloring because he has food allergies and acid reflux, so I spent awhile looking around for the perfect recipe. I searched Pinterest high & low, but nothing matched up. Finally, I remembered about this depression time cake recipe where they were […]

All opinions expressed are my own.* Ever since Eric and I have been parents (2013), we’ve had expectations for how things will go.

The Importance at Learning at Your Own Pace {Love to Swim School}

As parents, we want our children to shine. It’s just a thing.
