All Mixed Up

I’m not sure if you’ve noticed, I haven’t written a personal piece in a while. So many life changes have been happening and I was struggling to figure out how to continue. Quite frankly, I was trying to figure out whether I would continue this venture, this blog. I haven’t known what to say here […]

Big News: Introducing Modernish Mommas

Last year, I read a lot of blogs. I saw the gambit from complaining about parenthood to wildly inventive (but time-consuming and extensive) DIY projects. I enjoyed reading them all.

We Are Not Alone ~ Time to Find Your Village

Motherhood Parenthood is hard. I don’t need to tell you that… there are countless articles, hilarious rants and thought-provoking blog posts on the subject. Just as frequently, we hear about mothers, specifically, feeling alone in their struggle, like there’s no one around to help, understand or support. It’s not supposed to be that way. You can’t win […]

Being Challenged is Inevitable, Being Defeated is Optional

I’ve been in a funk. I’m not sure why. I feel like everyday is on repeat… Wake up… Take care of my girls… Clean house… Pick up son… Cook dinner… Put girls to sleep… Go to sleep. REPEAT. Throughout the second half of last year, I lost 30 pounds. I was on such a roll […]
