8 Ways to Help Your Breastfeeding Partner

Even if your breastfeeding partner is able to stay at home with baby the job is still a very demanding one. In fact, being a stay at home mom has it's own challenges when it comes to socialization and adult interaction. 

It's hard having a tiny life completely reliant on you for nutrients. Babies in the first few weeks of their life are ferocious eaters, and it isn't odd to have a baby that seems to be latched on 247.…

Forgiveness In All Areas of Your Life

I've been spending a lot of time lately thinking about forgiveness and the impact it can have on your life and your relationships. Personally I've found that, while difficult, it can be so incredibly freeing! Looking back at the hardest times of my life, my turning point has always been when I've been able to let go…

"N" is for Nurture...simple and sweet

N is for Nurture

I remember as a kid walking into a room where my mom was and telling her that I was bored. Her normal response was that she had a few things she could find for me to do. …

Valentine's Day Honesty

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?

If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse  3 days a year. (Valentine's…

The Value of Relationships

We have had many conversations in our home lately concerning relationships. How relationships are viewed today. How they were viewed when I was a teenager. How will we choose to walk in them. I’ve heard, more times than I can count, that the way teens do relationships today is different. They are free to talk to whomever they want, for as long as they want, without it carrying any weight as to the seriousness of the relationship. It doesn’t matter that they spend hours “texting” and…

Breaking up is hard for everyone

I know that every marriage is different. I listen to girl talk. I hear from friends who let their husbands handle all the finances, and those that act as the family accountant. I hear from moms who think their husbands don't spend enough time with the kids and those that are happy with their amount of free time away from the family. I hear from women who joke about murdering their spouses several times a week and those that are careful to…

First comes love, then comes moving in, then maybe marriage

Like many couples, my husband and I moved in together before getting married. And we actually lived together for more than a decade before saying our vows. We wanted to be sure about our choice to remain together. (Absolutely sure.) And to this day, I am glad that we put in all that time before we tied the knot. We know each other on every level and I believe that it made the "hard" years of marriage (the first year after saying "I do,"…

5 Reasons To Have a Tea Party

5 Reasons to Have a Tea Party With Your Daughter

My daughter loooves tea parties! She'll have tea parties with all the animals in her room, including any of her brother's toys that may have somehow gotten mixed in. Illy will throw parties for her brothers or bring me little cups of "tea" and "soup" (lukewarm water) while I'm working. She's even gotten the whole family to sit on the floor in the living room for a tea…

When friendships change

I do not know where my childhood best friend is. Her name is Nicole, and she and I were best friends from first through fifth grade. We were Girl Scouts together, we would play games in her basement, and we had countless sleepovers at each other's houses. When I moved to South Carolina, we wrote each other letters, but eventually that tapered off and we lost touch.…

How many selfies could you take in one day?

When my son was born, my Mom asked me to take a picture of him every day. So I did. (Thanks, Mom!) Obviously, I took more than one picture of him most days, but I can say that I have a record of my son every day of the first year of his life - that's 365 photos of his daily changes from being a day old to being a year old.…

Can your marriage stand on one leg?

I am a flamingo. I am standing perfectly still in flamingo pose with one foot firmly rooted to the ground and the other balanced away from my body. I breathe in. I breathe out. I am calm and pleased by my ability to stay so centered.…

Why Couldn't it Be 50 Shades of Purple

Discussions about 50 Shades of Grey seem to be everywhere, ad nauseam.  I have been wrestling whether or not to jump into the conversation but I decided I could no longer keep silent as I am passionate about helping people have better relationships and I think there are a few issues that haven’t been addressed yet (believe it or not!) ... so here goes.

First, I love the color Gray…

A Conscious Approach to Youth Sports


This was a weekend full of sports in my family. My 12 year old had a basketball game and my 7 year old had a soccer game and swim meet. As Rachel Macy Stafford says, I love to watch my children play. I have grown so much from the days when my 12 year old was just getting into sports - when my ego came roaring out to the field, the court, the pool - and I wanted him to excel at all costs. Regardless of his reasons for joining a team or for playing a sport (uh, maybe because…

How To Make More Time For Your Kids

There are a lot of parents who would think that a ride to school, or watching an hour of TV with their kids would count as “quality” time and would be enough. With today's hectic lifestyle most parents lead, trying to be at two places at once, balancing between their jobs, caring for their children, doing the house chores, and so on, time has really become a precious commodity. A commodity that at some point will inevitably begin to elude each and…

In my 20 months of being a mum, I have been found frequently banging my head against a wall asking – how can all us smart, savvy individuals be found stumbling into this state of motherhood as if someone got a stick and poked us in both eyes with it, and as if it hadn’t been…

The Day I Discovered My Husband's Side Chick

The day I discovered my husband’s side chick, I cried.  I’ve  known my husband for quite some time.  We met when I was 15 and 16, just right outside of our homes.  From the moment of that first hello, I couldn’t help but to feel butterflies.  After we parted ways, I went to Howard University and he went to  San Jose State University,I never really imagined that I would see him again.  Needless to say life is funny.  After 8 years  we finally reconnected and I felt like that little…

Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious  - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive with incredible detection ability, in fact increased smell sensitivity can save lives. Just ask your local gas company – pregnant…

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
