Photo credit: Haven Photography www.havenphotography.com People keep asking me, “So when are you having the next one?” “Do you want more?” even the nurse as I was leaving the hospital, “I’ll see you back for his sibling!” No. I can’t do it. I can barely manage one. This is normal for a mom of […]
Many thanks to our friends at RISD Continuing Education for allowing us to bring this interview to our readers.As I sprint down Washington Street, I’m clutching my laptop bag to keep it from banging against my legs and praying that my inability to get my daughters out the door on time for school hasn’t kept […]
I am a work-from-home mom, and sometimes my work requires travel. I might add, this travel is super fun and is basically a five-day party with my best girlfriends. It feels more like a vacation than a work trip. As moms, I think the world tells us we’re not supposed to enjoy trips away from […]
So many things change when you become a parent. Your daily routine is just the tip of the iceberg. I realized recently that I have morphed into a new version of myself, sometimes exhibiting strange behaviors. I don’t where or when I picked up these habits. But I did so nonetheless.

On February 14, 2018, seventeen innocent children and teachers kissed their families goodbye and walked out the door for the very last time. Their lives were lost to gun violence, a trend that’s far too common. It’s really hard to swallow that this wasn’t the first school shooting of the new year. In fact, it’s […]
It was a warm, sunny Sunday morning in June that I anxiously sat in the bathroom staring at a little stick to see if I was pregnant. After confirming a positive result with a couple more pregnancy tests (just in case), I started placing the date of my last menstrual period into online pregnancy trackers: a […]
It seems like the holidays actually just ended (my neighbors still have their lights up so that tells me it’s not even technically over yet), and I’m already hearing chatter about February vacation.
