Current Mood? I’m 39 weeks pregnant and spending as much time as possible relaxing, but I’m also always wrapped up in a project (cleaning, writing, organizing). I’ve remained busy and active throughout my pregnancy, which I recommend to any woman who’s thinking about becoming pregnant, or whose currently expecting. I’m also excited to announce that I’ll be starting a new blog series called The Greyson Diaries to inspire other mama bears and to write about […]

Current Mood? Happy Thursday! I hope everyone had a gorgeous Thanksgiving surrounded by family, friends, and delicious food. I am 38 weeks pregnant and each morning I wake up wondering when I’ll go into labor. It’s a beautiful and terrifying feeling, but I’m eager to meet the little angel I’ve felt move, kick, and grow for nine months. I feel as though I found out I was pregnant five minutes ago. I didn’t do any […]

Thankful & Blessed

Happy Thanksgiving my loves! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it reminds me of family, friends, tradition, and New York City. I spent my Thanksgiving’s as a child dressed up in Manhattan; there’s something magical about the city, The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and spending the day surrounded by good food and people. Who doesn’t love some mashed potatoes and corn? I always feel extra thankful and blessed this time of year, but […]

A letter to my baby

  Any woman who has carried a child (or multiple children) for nine months knows that you truly become a mom the second the strip reads positive, but the moment you give birth to your baby, “mom” becomes such an honored title and a full-time job. Your life changes forever and all at once. I am 37 weeks pregnant (9 months) and will soon be in the hospital, feeling every emotion possible (I’m so scared and […]

Feeling twenty three

Today is my twenty-third birthday and as I do each year, I am looking forward to new beginnings and adventures. I feel as though I turned twenty-two yesterday, but as we all know, time goes by so incredibly fast. I never thought that on my twenty-third birthday I wouldn’t be swallowing down an expensive martini, or that I’d be celebrating not only my birthday but 35 weeks of pregnancy. Life has a way of unfolding […]

Current Mood? I’m 34 weeks pregnant! I’m feeling more exhausted than I was last week, but I’m staying busy with work, our continuing home renovations (so excited to post pictures), planning for baby Greyson, and fall moments. I am loving the colder weather and waking up to a brisk, autumn breeze blowing through my window. I love drinking hot chocolate, cuddling under a cozy throw blanket, and wearing cute, fall essentials. This week I’m all […]

Life after sexual assault

I’ve been wanting to write about this ever since the Kavanaugh case began, and I’ve always been very open and honest about what happened to me, years back, but I’ve also been trying to focus on only positive feelings during my pregnancy. For those who don’t know, I was raped when I was sixteen years old, by a guy who was one of my closest friends (at the time). He knew me as a person, was close […]
