Up until the third trimester, pregnancy has been pretty smooth sailing. I’ve kept up my busy, active lifestyle and thankfully haven’t suffered too many of the terrible pregnancy symptoms… until the third trimester hit
The hustle and bustle of life can rob us of quality time around the table. But easy weeknight dinners are a must for Andrew and me! Here are a few recipes to try.
I am officially 24 weeks pregnant and definitely starting to feel like it. Up until 20 weeks, I barely noticed a difference in my body, my sleep or my energy levels, but I’m starting to slow down a little bit now.
This year is different. Not because of the pandemic. Not because I’m becoming a mom. But because I have a new perspective and view on life, love and work. It seems that 2020 taught me to let go a bit. Live more in the moment. Less stress. Less pressure. More living.
I can’t believe we are already waving goodbye to the first trimester! It feels like a lifetime go and just yesterday that we found out we were pregnant all at once. We have had A LOT going on over the past three months.
I can’t believe I’m writing a blog post on family planning! For as long as I can remember, I have wrestled with the idea of having children. I’ve never felt that urge or tug on my heart to become a mother until after we got married. And when all of our friends started having children, something changed for me.
I can’t believe mother’s day is almost here. Do you have your mother’s day gifts ideas yet? I haven’t purchased my mom a gift yet, but I’m totally buying her one of the cards below! This year is flying by. My life is so busy and hectic that sometimes I drop the ball on recognizing the special people in my life.

I love supporting other small shops and makers and these types of items always make heartfelt gifts. Here are some of my favorite mother’s day gift ideas from Etsy:
Before we dive in, please know that this blog post is just my personal experience sharing money with a S/O and there is no right or wrong answer to this question!

One minute, I’m making a list of all the things I love about being married and not having children, and the next minute, I’m having a full fledged breakdown (ugly tears included) because a friend sends me a cute video of her toddler playing in the yard.
These books have picked me up when I’m down and encouraged me when I wanted to give up on my entrepreneurial dreams. No matter what you need right at this moment, one of these books might just change your life, too!
My good friend Lauren Koster of Lauren Koster Creative, and I are rolling out an IGTV series called Money Talk where we have candid, open conversations about money. We lay it ALL out there for your when it comes to our financial situations.
I’ve gotten a few questions about my business and career path lately, so I figured I would take the time to share more in depth. The simple look at my careers goes something like this: high school > college > entry level job in my field > mid-level job in my field.
One year, I bought MYSELF a dozen roses and a pack of bacon for Valentine’s Day. There is nothing wrong with splurging on a gift for yourself. Whether it’s a bouquet of flowers, a nice piece of jewelry, or those shoes you have been drooling over. Treaty yo’ self on Valentine’s Day.
