Kale shakes and I are getting a divorce.

Irreconcilable differences. It has been a disaster from the start. Today, I decided to try again. And I was so proud; I took our picture sharing this smoothie that tastes like tropical fruit and salad and was planning to say something like, "Kale, Take two! Woo!" Oh, look at us. Drinking our superfoods in harmony. But, being home with a ...

Babysitting

originally published on this here site, over four years ago, and I still feel the very same way! Photo circa April, 2014 -- Beau's former signature move. Today, he is still just as crafty, he is just a lot taller.  Or, as I like to call it, “Why everyone who wants to be a parent someday should babysit ...

You make me feel

Hey! Short time no see! It feels soooooo good to say that. I mean, now that I am trying to call myself a blogger, again, I figured I should blog. Did I tell you that I wrote my last post while sitting outside at a cafe, drinking a large matcha latte with almond milk, eating a dragonfruit bowl, and ...

#honestmotherhood

"I am calling this post #honestmotherhood, brought to you by this thing I try to do called honest motherhood. It is when I share things about my life -- motherhood in particular -- that are honest and raw and occasionally unflattering and sometimes comical. To get off on the right (honest) foot, I have to admit that I ...

13 Reasons Why

Almost exactly one year ago (literally - it was May 24, 2017) I published a hard, raw, potentially controversial post entitled, I am a 32-year-old Mom and Here are the Thirteen Reasons Why I Can Relate to Hannah Baker. I had finished watching the Netflix series for the second time (Ok..maybe it was the third...or fourth?) and felt so, ...

Here I stand.

It was last Thursday night. I posted a video on my "Insta Stories", in which I lamented about being exhausted, run-down and oh-so-busy. To see me looking "terrible", as I had been told twice that day (out of love, I should mention), you can click here. At that moment, I was just sitting down to dinner--a frozen burrito ...

Mug shot

This is a post about mugs. Yes, you read that correctly. More accurately, I guess, this is a story about mugs. I've recently published some heavy stuff on here, and though I always like to share the parts of life that are hardest (about "what hurts" as my main main Hemingway has advised)-- --and sometimes I simply post because I am fortunate ...

I am proud

I am many things this morning. One is proud. That is not easy to write; in all honesty, I have almost chickened out of this post entirely a few times. But I am going to try. This is not a post about all of the things and people who are making me proud in my life right now. Let ...

The best

Do you know what is the best? The best is when you're sitting in your office (read: on the bed, laptop propped up on the faux fur pillow on your lap) and you get a call from your amazing Public Relations Manager, Kimberly Ettinger, and Kim says, "I just got a message from the people at Main Line Today and ...
