I’m Sorry I Yelled | New Mom Series

I’m so sorry I yelled earlier. I didn’t mean to yell again, I’m so sorry honey. Mike…I am so sick of yelling. LOUD, angry, snappy yelling. Mean comments. Cuts, burns, digs. At my own little kids. How does it come to this sometimes? For about a month I’ve been doing great…however, if you saw me earlier…

Regrets | Salt & Sunshine Series

This is a tough one for me. But in my heart, I know it is so relatable for everyone. Regret is a powerful emotion. It’s consuming, it’s obsessive, it’s cruel, it’s justified. Regret is hard, but if you flip it on it’s back, you will truly see that regret is a lesson. I’ve tried to figure out…

Signs A New Baby Was Here | New Mom Series

They’re back! The bruises, the quick nods that feel like hours. What am I talking about right now?! Is this new baby exhausted delirium? Maybe..but at least I was able to crank out this blog post! Can I get an Amen!? New babies make their presence known even when they’re not in your arms by…

Maternity Leave-ish | Business Owning Mamas

Over the past couple of years, I’ve been lucky enough to read some sweet and trusting emails from moms-to-be who own their own businesses wondering how long they need to take for maternity leave when their new little one arrives! Being your own boss is SUCH a blessing in so many ways, but as so…

Third Baby Final Thoughts, Worries + Hopes | New Mom Series
