The (Re) Making of a Wedding Gown Pt. II

If you're checking in here, this is where I started working on my wedding gown, and it is lengthy. I detailed my process, trials, and tribulations journal style.

The (Re) Making of a Wedding Gown Pt. I

I always knew I wanted to design my own wedding gown whenever I got married. As a young girl, I never would have imagined that as an adult, I'd actually get to be the one to make it! I'm so very thankful that a $50 Kmart clearance sewing machine 6 years ago (updgraded since) and the help of YouTube led me to having the ability to be able to pull this off.

How I Met My Husband

People often ask me about how we met and are shocked that everything we have built all spawned from social media before social media was even a real thing. But I like to think it’s not about how we met…it’s about how we have held on. We trust & we are patient with one another. We compromise & we change when we need to. We listen & we vent. We support & encourage each other to chase dreams. We appreciate one another. We cherish one another. And we love…we love through the good, the bad, through everything.

Mommy Wars: The Battle of Condescension and Retaliatory Judgment

In regards to motherhood, we have tons of decisions to make straight out the gate. Natural or medicated birth? Breastfeeding or formula? Vaccines? What parenting style will I practice? How will I dress him...what if he wants to wear pink? Will I go back to work? Stay at home? As the children grow older, we have questions about screen time, friends, education, extracurriculars, you name it.

I Wanted to Be a Blogger

At some point in time...maybe two years ago, I had this grand vision of myself as a blogger. I saw myself writing regularly, always having something to post about. I even enrolled in a business course (and attended the e-sessions) on building blog traffic, making a blog profitable, and all that jazz. That was probably six months ago. To this day, my blog hasn't generated a penny of income. I'm 100% fine with that.

6 Reasons I Think You're An Awesome Parent

Being a parent is tough. No doubt or questions about it. When our kids are born, we don’t get a hefty parental guide or manual to handle virtually anything that goes wrong. Our parents didn’t get one, either. If I need a little guidance on a case by case basis, what I do get is the internet—a necessary evil.

2016: My year in review...

A new year is upon us! This year was an interesting one. It was full of trials and triumphs. Happy moments, trying moments. It was a (mostly) good year for my family and me.
