Reece Turns Five! – Heart Birthday Party

When Reece picked "hearts" for his birthday party theme I was unsure to make it happen without looking like a Valentine party. With some creative thinking, it turned out really cute. You can't say no to a Love, Kindness, and Heart birthday party. Can't believe I have a 5 year old!

My Life With Migraines: Parenting Through Chronic Pain

Have you ever had to take care of your child or children with a cold?  What about when you have the flu?  Or a headache?  Or maybe a migraine?  They all suck.  No one wants to do it, but you know there's a light at the end, the cold will fade and it will be back to business as usual soon enough.

The Mommy Friendship Hustle

Becoming a Mom can feel like you are starting at square one again when it comes to friendships. To make and maintain mom friendships you have to hustle in ways you never had to with your dating game. Schedules that don't align, rejections, and mom obligations all get in the way of connecting during a time we need it most.

Mom and Son Date In The City
