Sleepless Nights

Remember those nights you fell asleep as soon as your head hit the pillow? Or the mornings you woke up feeling refreshed and revived after 8 hours of uninterrupted slumber? Yeah, me neither. Actually, that’s a lie. I used to be a fantastic sleeper. I would sometimes wake up in the same position I fell…

Working Through Changes

Wow, I truly missed writing. I kept telling myself “today will be the day I write again,” but the days just kept coming and going. Out of all the days and opportunities I’ve had to open my laptop and type, I chose today. Myla and I just returned home from Florida, a much needed vacation…

A Sad Mommy

I know I focus mainly on the positives in my life. I write about things that make me happy, because I enjoy it. I love to write about being a mother, my experiences, and what I have learned. But I want to keep my blog as real as I can, and that means talking about…

3 Years

February 21st is one of my favorite days of the year: our anniversary. I don’t know how three years have already gone by. We blinked, and now we have a four month old. So crazy. Scottie, I don’t think you realize the impact you have made on my life. I needed your help to discover…

The Honeymoon Phase

You know when you first meet someone, there’s so much excitement and thrill. You feel like you are on a cloud, floating in nothing but bliss. Your emotions are heightened, and nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, can damper your mood because you are just so freaking happy? This is how I feel when I…

Powered by Plants

I became a vegan soon after Myla was born. I was a vegetarian for 6 months before I decided to cut out all animal products completely. This all happened around the time I got pregnant. I lasted a good two months into my pregnancy before I started to eat meat again. The cravings were too…

Mama, I’m Hungry

I always knew I would breastfeed my babies, and of course, was planning on breastfeeding Myla from the moment she was born. When I was pregnant, and would think about nursing, I could never imagine what it would be like to have a baby drink milk from my breasts. Within an hour of Myla entering…

Tuesday Thoughts

The struggles of nighttime fussiness are REAL. Myla is currently on the boob as I try to type this with one hand. I swear she knows when I’m the busiest because this girl cries for her mama. Obviously, I love how much she needs me. I love being the only person that can feed her….

To Your Daddy

I lucked out. I mean, I seriously lucked out big time. The father of my child just so happens to be the love of my life, my absolute soulmate, and the best fucking dad ever. From the moment Myla was born, Scottie was there. Not just physically, but emotionally. He was there, forever. I knew…

3 Months of Pure Bliss

I can’t believe it’s been over 3 months since my baby girl was born. Where does the time go? No, seriously? The day we brought you home from the hospital literally feels like yesterday. I was so emotional, sitting in the backseat of the Jeep with you, just staring at your perfect existence. I broke…
