Homemaker Chic When hearing the word “homemaker” what image comes to mind? Do you picture Donna Reed from The Donna Reed Show? Are you envisioning a more modern, glamorous housewife, like Kyle Richards from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills? Shockingly, the word housewife sounds retro to many and quite old school with so many powerful, strong, and talented women shaking the ground beneath us and creating positive waves in their workplace, in government positions, […]

Hi my favorites! I just got back from the perfect cabin vacation in Bushkill Pennsylvania (The Poconos) for my birthday and I live for my wardrobe when I travel anywhere. I’m also a mom and I’m always prepared for the unknown and the inevitable. The key to successfully packing for any vacation is planning ahead and taking a breath. The worst thing you can do is stress yourself out prior to leaving, because that takes […]

This mama don’t mess If you want a beautiful life and positive results you need to take out the trash and stay away from toxicity. Sadly, I know plenty of mamas who are driving down a dead end road, whether they’re wrapped up in unnecessary drama, or they’re lost in a toxic relationship. It makes me sad to see others drowning in chaos and to watch people make the same mistakes over and over again. […]

Strength and Sleepless Nights Being a mother is finding fire and strength in yourself each day and battling fears you never thought you’d face. Before you become a mom your fears are immensely different and they only involve you. You worry about your own, personal finances, needs, wants, choices, insecurities, and mistakes. Once you start worrying about another life, things change. It’s one remarkable way to become selfless. You worry about issues that don’t exist, […]

  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.

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 […]
