When I was 9 years old my parents took me skiing and on our last run I had to go down the River Run. It was the steep, icy LAST run before apres ski. And I was not budging. No matter how much my mom tried to coax me into following her down, the fear in me crept so high...


I proudly bear the {mostly} crunchy badge as I swear in my 5 years of motherhood under my belt.

With all that I’ve learned, gathered, researched and read it is worth it to me to be conscious about what we put into our bodies. If I want my girls to grow healthfully and i...


It’s hard to believe that we are smack dab in the middle of June. But the rays of sunshine, sweaty kid kisses and cicadas singing their nightly lullaby remind me that yes, we are on summer time.

For me summer is when we can finally exhale and breathe. Our whole family i...


May is the motherload (pun intended) of months for me as a mom. Both my daughters are born in May and my cancer-versary is in May.

Others are experiencing, struggles and the reminder of such a season of cheer drowns them in their own despa...


Most of you might wonder how sickness goes down in our house, since I talk about how healthy we all are all the time. 

It doesn’t happen often, but when it does...well I’ll give you an example.

The other night, Henley ate dinner fine, then we were cuddled watching a...


Here I am 17 months out from being diagnosed with breast cancer, and most people when they see me say I look great, and seem to be doing great.

Which I am, thank God, I am.

But what most don’t understand is the constant mind battle that takes place from the moment you ar...


My oldest daughter is fixated on treats. Currently if my four-year-old wipes her bottom herself (cleanly) then she gets a treat, if my two-year-old goes potty on the potty, she gets a treat. So now they try every opportunity to do these things to get a treat.
