    19 Goals for Moms to Follow in 2019

    Being a mom is such a special gift. The joy of raising a tiny human into their own person and the amount of things you learn about yourself while being their mom is truly life changing. But, let’s be real, it a hard job! As much as I fantasize about the perfect day frolicking through the flowers while my son giggles and smiles, that’s not what everyday motherhood entails. Some days are messy. Some days are a disaster. Some days are just too hard. But we get through it and we make it work; it might not be a pretty picture everyday, but it’s a picture nonetheless.

    My First Blogmas

    Happy December!???????????? I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and enjoyed all things fall had to offer this year. I’m stoked that Christmas is just around the corner! Christmas is my favorite time of year, but even better this year is the fact that I get to see the holiday magic through my toddler’s eyes!

    A Letter

    A letter to my husband… We’ve been through happy and sad times in the 14 years that we’ve been together. We’ve grown up together and struggled through some hard life lessons. But through it all, we’ve learned together and our love has become stronger. While our love is not perfect, I can say with my whole heart that I wouldn’t change our experiences. We are most definitely not the same people or couple that we were when our story began. And I love you more now than I could have ever imagined. I say all this to express how I felt about you before we entered into the greatest adventure…

    Being Productive

    I have a notebook that I use to write down all the ideas I have for my writing pieces. To generate some creativity, I have turned to sources like Pinterest to see what other writers have used to spark that inspiration into their writings. I found some ideas that included taking time to write down 100 things that made me happy and I had to do it in one sitting. Thinking about it, it seemed like something that should have been an easy task, but it actually took me some time to finish. Obviously things my list included my husband, our unborn son, date nights, family, friends, etc. But there…
