Something big happened last week. Courtney and I visited a daycare for our son. Yes daycare!!! When I decided to become a stay at home mom I was prepared to be at home with Santana all day everyday. However as is my motto, “my life is a work in progress.” I’m just figuring it all … Read More

Why I Stayed Silent About My Postpartum Depression

Why I Stayed Silent About My Postpartum Depression

I recently did a guest post for Vanessa Rapisarda at Running In Triangles. It was about my struggles with postpartum depression. To be quite honest I wrote it awhile ago but held on to it for a little while after I had written it because I wasn’t sure if I wanted to share it with … Read More

My hair has been through so many changes through the years.

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.

What NOT To Say To Parents Traveling With Kids

I’m always seeing posts about traveling with kids. How to prepare, how to pack, what not to do. My problem isn’t my son, it’s the insensitive people around me.

Marriage After Baby : How We Stay Close

Being married has been amazing. I guess it helps that I married my best friend. I know that sounds cliché, but its the truth. Being around each other is fun for us. Most of the time we are laughing. We knew after we had Santana things would be different. We just didn’t know how much … Read More
