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…

Random Midnight Thoughts

This post is going to be kind of “out there.” I just feel like I have so many thoughts going through my head these days. Mostly, they are about the future. I’m constantly thinking about what I want my life to become. Don’t get me wrong, being a mother was seriously at the top of…

The Day You Were Born

Can you imagine being 9 months pregnant in the hottest month of the entire year? I’m talking record breaking temperatures. When I say I didn’t leave my air conditioned house, I actually didn’t leave. Ever. I was miserable. I had gained a whopping 55 pounds and nothing fit me. Scottie’s t-shirts didn’t even fit me,…

Becoming Pregnant

The love that Scottie and I have for each other is like the love you read about, or see in movies. I am so incredibly lucky to have him. Him and I aren’t perfect, by any means, but I like to think that our love is. Of course, with a love like ours, comes lots…
