F* It

Last year I coined 2016 the year of the fantastic ordinary and I shared the stories of my fantastic, ordinary family members and friends who were unknowingly living beautifully inspiring lives. This year, as I look back at 2017, the majority of what I see are the figurative mountains and challenges it presented locally, nationally […]

I know we’re, like, days from Christmas and everything is supposed to be merry and bright but honestly, I’ve got a really pressing issue I need to discuss. I’m about 99.9888% positive my pregnancy brain never went away. In fact, I’m 99.9999% sure it’s actually gotten worse. I mean, it’s possible it’s just graduated and […]

It’s finally December! Seth and I have been busy preparing for what is expected to be our most exciting Christmas with the boys yet.

Well, it finally happened. I’m going back to work next week. I’m excited to get back into a routine that is steady but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already overwhelmed with the changes. It’s funny how life works, I suppose; just when I was beginning to realize how much I enjoyed spending […]

Last week I was checking my Abbott and June emails (which I hardly ever do) and saw I had missed an email from a girl at some social media startup platform. The email said she had come across Abbott and June’s Instagram account, thought it looked like a great fit for their beta and was […]
