An Open Letter to the Papa That Never Was, But Always Will Be

Today was messy. It was another day that started like the rest that I am always thankful for. Our family of four was up before the sun rose. My son may or may not have been up and fussing a few times during the night. I spent the majority of the day chasing our littles [...]

Finding My Mom Village

Before having kids, I thought the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” was a nice idea and sounded cute, but I didn’t think it would really apply to me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the idea. My thoughts sounded more like “But I’m independent!  I won’t need help — I don’t want help.” […]

An Average Day for a Work From Home Mom

I made the switch from working in an office setting (and later on an art studio) to working from home full time about six years ago. At the time I was juggling the demands of a standard 40 hour-a-week job, a steady stream of freelance writing work, and the discomforts of late-term pregnancy. Something had […]
