{my motherhood journey}

*Disclaimer: This is my own personal story into my motherhood journey. This is what I have experienced, where I have come from, and where I am at.   I will never forget the moment I realized I in fact wanted kids. It was no secret I didn't quite know where I landed in my adult... Continue Reading →

{latest and greatest}

Sitting at my kitchen, the gentle hum of the dishwasher playing in the background, I am lost in a sea of thoughts. The most immediate, do I get up and wash the rest of the dishes in the sink? Should I mop the kitchen floors that have been neglected this past week? Perhaps I should... Continue Reading →

{a season of busyness}

How is it the second day of fall already? I cannot even wrap my mind around that. The kids have been in school for over a month already, all three girls! I can't believe that either. I have had such great plans for this space but have also been finding myself in a season of... Continue Reading →

{reflection}

I caught a glimpse of myself today in the mirror and smirked. The once smooth and flawless skin I possessed has now been marked by long lines and dark shadows. The whites of my eyes not as bright as they once were and more freckles adorning my cheeks. My face, although completely recognizable and still... Continue Reading →

Two and half years after... Continue Reading →

It’s a time of reflection, looking back on the year that is passing to see what worked well and what didn’t. It’s a time to reevaluate where you... Continue Reading →

{it’s been awhile}

This space. This blank page. Waiting for my thoughts to get out on the crisp white background. Yet, it's remained blank. Almost the entire month. The greatest month. The month that I could be writing about all the amazing things that are Down syndrome and how it has changed my life. And yet, I haven't.... Continue Reading →

{today’s the day}

The first day of Kindergarten. For my oldest. The one who made me a mother almost 6 years ago. We are entering a whole new chapter in our lives. It excites me but simultaneously terrifies me. I think back to when she was first born. So many sleepless nights. No one every told me that... Continue Reading →

{beach day}

I am wordy. I know. I write a lot of what's on my heart. Which for me means using a lot of words. The things I feel burning a hole inside of me that just have to get out before I self combust. This post will be short and sweet, with a few motherhood through... Continue Reading →
