When I was growing up, Duluth Minnesota was a metropolis to me. We’d travel there to go shopping, see the doctor, and visit family. Eventually I ended up attending college in the “big city” and immediately moved away following graduation because it was too small. Just after my daughter was born, we decided to leave […]
We have partnered with St. Luke’s to bring you this informative post on Pelvic Floor Therapy. While this post is sponsored, all experiences and opinions are 100% our own.I met my husband during graduate school. We got married, started our careers, and I got my doctorate in physical therapy. In 2011, we decided we were ready for […]
“I come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses…” The song playing on my mom’s stereo jolted me out of my trance tinged with sadness. That’s my grandma’s favorite hymn!

My “Me Time” is usually spent browsing the internet looking for things to make my life as a mom easier and more enjoyable. In the winter, I’m scouring every website known to man […]

Getting pregnant was such an exciting thing. I don’t think I have ever seen my husband smile so big when I told him. I was excited from the get-go, but also nervous about labor and delivery. The first time I genuinely wanted to back out was at our childbirth class, when I saw a […]
We’re incredibly grateful to Dan Elnes of Edward Jones Investments and the Glensheen for sponsoring this incredible evening and we can’t wait to spend the evening with you there for the Mommy Awards!
