Here’s the truth, sharing your life on the Internet is HARD & MESSY. Creating a window into your life for thousands of people on the Internet probably seems a bit crazy. But it takes guts. A lot of them. And unless you do it, you will never really understand what it’s like.
Shortly after applying to programs, Andrew started getting calls and emails for interviews, which was exciting! There were opportunities coming in left and right from all over the country.
There is nothing better than a yummy mocktail. Whether you are trying to drink less, pregnant, or just looking for drinks to enjoy anytime of the day, there is a recipe for you here! I started looking at mocktail recipes for Dry January, but I plan to make this all year long. Cheers to drinking and feeling extra healthy!
Never before in history have women had such control over the decision to prevent pregnancy. This is a completely new choice we are facing. And while we navigate the landscape of making that choice, there are also so many other beautiful stories of motherhood. I strive to share the deepest darkest parts of my heart here, but I know that my story is only one perspective. That’s why I wanted to bring in other amazing, strong women with stories to tell and experiences to share.
Most people think grocery delivery is way more expensive than going to the store & doing the shopping yourself, but if you earn credits, your groceries can actually pay for themselves!
It’s absolutely beautiful, which is why I think it creates this huge hole in my heart. This massive fear of missing out. I’ve never felt so distant and disconnected with others in a similar life stage.
I’ve found a few key ways to combat the massive amounts of dog hair! Porter still sheds just as much, but I’ve figured out more efficient and effective ways to pick up all those fur balls + keep our house fresh & clean.
It is exhilarating and refreshing to no longer run from yourself. The ability to embrace yourself, your flaws, your desires, and your being is insanely powerful.
Why is it so hard to make friends as an adult? I brought this topic up on Instagram over a year ago and I’ve never seen so many women relate to something. Maybe you haven’t moved recently but you are finding that your past friendships are slowly dissolving. Early adulthood is strange like that. We go from being surrounded by close friends every single day to living completely different lives. People get married, have kids, move away and start moving into different life stages.
Admitting that I live paycheck to paycheck feels like standing naked in front of an auditorium of rich people.
May is mental health awareness month. Depression and anxiety are complex, confusing and different for every individual. None of us are above or below this crippling struggle.
If you have been following along with the blog for awhile, you know that I have always struggled with my mental health. I have fallen into waves of depression and increasingly struggle with anxiety. Those struggles create an entirely new set of emotions that are also hard to carry.
I can’t relate to this. My heart does not long to be a mother. Never once have I thought to myself, “I want to be a mother.” Never. Period. That thought has never crossed my mind. Don’t get me wrong, I have hypothetically said “our kids” in conversations with my husband, but that longing feeling of wanting a child has never been in my heart.
I love talking about the topic of time and resources. We have the same amount of time in a day as Beyonce and Warren Buffett. Let that sink in. We also have a lot of excuses as to why we can’t this and can’t that, and the number one excuse is likely, “I don’t have time.”
Guys! It’s not about having more time. It is about prioritizing things in our life to create the space and time. I work full-time, run two business and a blog, and I still find time to work out almost every single day and eat dinner with my husband. I literally want to print out a t-shirt with the word “priorities” written across the chest.
