Dog-proofing your home during the holidays

Good morning ya’ll! Dogs, babies, and Christmas decorations do not go together. From burning candles, a giant evergreen covered in fragile baubles and even strings of food, to a kitchen with frosting and sprinkles on every surface.

New Beginnings

Ever find it impossibly hard to return to something you have abandoned for some time? Yes. A world of yes. For me? A normal eating routine. A fitness regimen. A writing schedule. Personal relaxation and self-care. These things are often lost in the first few months of parenthood (or so I’ve heard), especially as I […]

Adapting to pregnancy: Things I look forward to about not being pregnant

Here I sit, 35 weeks pregnant, and the days are flying by. I am patiently waiting for the period in which, according to many ‘helpful’ individuals, time stops and you feel as though you have been pregnant for 5 years. Thank you for the helpful advice *eye roll* but so far I feel as if […]
