Perfectly Imperfect Perfect Mom

Perfectly Imperfect Perfect Mom

Some days I feel like I have motherhood figured out, I’m on my game, house cleaned, healthy meals cooked, laundry washed AND FOLDED (it’s a huge accomplishment) the kids have had no screen time, I’ve had meaningful conversations with my mom and my best friend. The stress is low and the frown lines aren’t getting deeper. Those days I manage to do all of the things, and I’m happy with myself. I feel like I’m actually doing a good job. But then there are days where I’m lucky if I even make it to 10am without an inner meltdown. Everything...


My Invisible Illness

My Invisible Illness

I deal with and have dealt with a few, unseen but very much felt, illnesses in my life, anxiety, and what is commonly understood as depression. So In my 34 years I’ve known what it is like to be so unwell on the inside but look like there’s nothing going on, to the outside world. What I didn’t know is how some of those mental illnesses were caused by another issue completely. Some of these are misdiagnosed to be something they can easily be placed as, a common or easy diagnosis is often wrong. Instead of being the diagnosis, these...


Not Your Average Girl Power

Not Your Average Girl Power

In a time where girl power is celebrated, little girls are being told to dream big and being empowered, told they can be anything, do anything they set their minds and hearts to. Women speaking out against inequality in everything from t-shirt sayings to the work place. I see so much of the saying “it’s hard to be a man right now” well if your a shitty man hell yes it is, and if you’re not then keep on keeping on. But there’s is so much less of the latter in this time, that we don’t really see anything but....


Mommin In A Different Era

Mommin In A Different Era

Grandmas are wonderful, grandmas are loving and helpful and make life easier. They mean well, they’ve raised kids, they have seen it all, and most of the time you can learn a thing or two. But they raised kids in a different day and age. Life is a whole lot different the when they had babies and toddlers. My grandma actually asked me why I couldn’t just hold the baby in my arms when we took him home from the hospital. (There are so many things wrong with that statement alone I can’t even.) Like I said they mean well,...


Not Your Average Kind Of Love

Not Your Average Kind Of Love

I’ve been married for 5 years now. We have been together for 8 years and living together for 7 1/2. Before we started dating and were young, neither of us had any real responsibilities, life was a day to day come what will. Both careless and misguided . Both of us in our own separate lives had no real direction and had no intentions of settling down. I was in fact never going to get married and never have children. That just wasn’t for me, wasn’t in my plans, or cards. I never wanted to be anything but wild and...
