Toxic Habits To Stop Now!

After I had my son I suffered with anxiety and postpartum depression. I have finally gotten to a point where I am comfortable talking about it, but more importantly I’ve started focusing on my self-care.

Parenting As An Afro-Latina Mom

Parenting As An Afro-Latina Mom

As an afro-latina mom raising a son, there is so much that I want and have to teach him. One of the most important things is about our culture. Our Afro-Latino culture, and the language.

Conversations To Have Before Getting Married

Conversations To Have Before Getting Married

I’m sitting across from my husband, Courtney. Staring at him as he rocks our son to sleep thinking “how did I get so lucky?” I honestly don’t even remember the first time we met.

The Importance Of Removing Negativity From Your Life

I have decided that my word for the year is “self-care.” Self-care means something different to everybody. For me it’s about taking care of my mind, body, and spirit.

Before we even had children Courtney and I discussed our values and how we wanted to raise any future children.

Something I’ve had to work on since having Santana is “self-care.” For those that aren’t too familiar with the term self care it is exactly what it sounds like, care for oneself without the help of a medical professional.
