For most of my life, I grew up focusing on my future. I feel like so many of us are “programmed” to think that our life needs to look a certain way. We are supposed to hit these magic invisible markers for all of life’s big…

    Liza - I love this. I’m 34 and finally in a relationship with a man I love and can actually see marriage and babies (god willing) in my future. It’s a heck of a lot later than I thought it would happen, but it’s my life and I’m not on anyone’s timetable but my own!ReplyCancel

    ivana split - this is such an empowering message! Thank you for sharing.
    We are all unique. We shouldn’t give into that pressure to do something by a certain age…We need to do things when we are ready for them, not when society tells us we should do it.

    Charlotte - I absolutely love love love this. As a single girl of 32 I constantly here whisperings of “getting a move, why hasn’t she found somebody yet” etc. It seems everyone has a problem with it other than me! Thank you for sharingReplyCancel

Happy Monday friends!! I am counting down the hours till our trip on Wednesday. Can you tell I am excited? I am running around getting my last minute things together and packing up today. I wanted to share an outfit I have been wearing on…

Sharing some of my favorite wishlist items for our baby moon in Maui next week!! I AM SO EXCITED!!! When prepping for a special trip like this, I always end up splurging a little bit before with some fun things to pack in my suitcase….

One of the great things about being pregnant during the warmer months means that I can get away with wearing dresses pretty much 24/7. Also it means that I can find all my favorite non maternity brands to keep my maternity wear purchases…

GUYS I am moving and shaking through the second trimester (and currently 24 weeks pregnant as I write this). I figured it would be more helpful and fun to share more frequent updates than just first, second and third trimester. I feel like…

    Amanda - I did not have IVF but I did a lot of the genetic testing I believe you did after getting pregnant. To ease my mind but also because I have a family history of health issues. At my anatomy scan the ultrasound tech marked 3 CPC in my son’s brain. I say all this to let you know that I’m watching my now 2 year old son chase his father for an Oreo . Pregnancy is scary no matter what but worth it. I will say my kid was over due a week and ended up being over 10 when he was born so if you’re scared of anything be scared for that ReplyCancel

    Eve - Glad you’re doing so well. Good to hear you got relief from the migraines too. I hope I’m not giving unwanted advice here but I also had pregnancy migraine a few times & have found spraying pure magnesium oil on my neck & should on the side where I get the pain to be very helpful. It also helps me to sleep a little more. If you do want to try it make sure you get a pure one as most have essential oils that are not recommended for pregnancy in them.
    So happy for you that baby is doing well. XReplyCancel
