On Spiritual Surrender

(Jul. 7, 2017) I have been tossing something around and around in my mind for months trying to get clarity. You see, it is my dream to have a business from home, doing something that I love, that allows me to share my gifts and be a blessing to others, while providing the space I need to nurture my children. This has been my dream for many years, but has been my solid prayer since last summer, which I prayed for nightly in the months leading up to Isabelle's birth. I didn't know exactly what this business would be, where...

Self-Care During Early Mommyhood

(Jun. 22, 2017) It's pretty hard to write blog posts nowadays because I rarely have a quiet moment with both of my hands free. Our baby girl Isabelle is 8 months now, and I mostly hold her while she's sleeping. She'll sleep without me holding her (for about 15 minutes or so), but when I'm holding her, she'll sleep 2-3 hours. So basically, that's where we're at and I'm okay with it. I enjoy holding her, but I do miss writing and certain other things, so I thought I would write in small doses when I get a chance, just like...

10 Ways to Cope with an Unhealthy Relationship

(Nov. 3, 2016) I've been wanting to write this post for awhile. While I think it's important to move on from the past, and refrain from revisiting old wounds, I do believe it's beneficial to share what I've learned with others, in a way that can be useful. My life is so different from how it used to be, and it is my hope for others who are struggling in an unhealthy relationship to be able to make the changes they need to in order to create a healthy and happy life. I know that when I was in a dark place...

On Letting Go & Embracing the Unexpected

(May 27, 2016) I need to write. There is so much swirling about in my head, but each time I sit down to write, I have only one thought: "I'm so tired." To which I usually agree with, and think, "Yep....I am tired, maybe I'll write another time." Well, those other times aren't coming and I'm still tired, and still feel the need to write, so I guess I'll just write tired. The majority of my tiredness, I'm sure, comes from having a baby on the way. We are expecting a baby girl, due in October. I am 20 weeks...

How Change Really Happens

(Jan. 8, 2016) Happy New Year! I am still allowing the dust to settle surrounding the end of 2015/beginning of 2016 before I come up with my word or phrase for the year. I've entertained the idea of *bliss* and *focus* or *focused bliss* but none of those feels right just yet. It will be hard to compete with last year's phrase, Pure Divine Magic. That phrase lit my whole body up when I finally settled on it, so there's no rush...I'll know when the right words fall into place. Something that has been on my heart lately, when I think of New Year's...
