It’s no secret that motherhood is full of demands. However, I have finally come to the realization that when I don’t fill my own cup, it’s impossible for me to fill the cups of my children or husband. Mothers naturally have a servant’s heart. The needs of everyone else come before our own. I am […]

It’s October, and even though it doesn’t feel like a proper fall here in Jacksonville (cue the sweating and mosquitoes), now is the time to start thinking about what to wear for your annual holiday photos! As a professional photographer, my clients often ask me once they book their photoshoot, “What can we wear?” Below […]
I was out midweek with a few girlfriends, crafting it up and throwing back a few brews. Our convo was all over the place — as many momversations are when we are attempting to catch up without constant interruptions from the little people in our lives. Sometime between distressing and staining our creations, we started […]

Thank you to Anderson Longevity Clinic for delivering hope and wellness to those who wish to improve their quality of life. I just want to feel good. I jokingly say, maybe it’s because I haven’t slept in six years (well, not since pre-kids), but does anyone else feel this way? I wake up every day […]
Raise your hand if you feel like you run around CRAZY from the moment you wake up until the moment you lay your head on the pillow.

When my husband and I made the decision to adopt, it was because we wanted to have a family made up of biological children and children who were not biologically ours. Two months after we were chosen by my daughter’s biological mother, I found out that it would be extremely difficult (if not impossible) for […]
Thank you to Pure Hydration for helping busy mamas tackle that hectic #MomLife! #MomLife is a busy life. Between the boo-boos and lunch packing to work meetings and soccer practice, not to mention fitting in a little exercise and maybe a date night (or just a few minutes to catch up on your day with […]
When I found out my oldest child was going to be a girl, I had visions of ballet class and glitter dancing in my head. I am a very “girlie” girl, and I couldn’t wait to share these things with my daughter. Honestly, you would think I would know better. My wife grew up an […]
There’s always a point in my week where I repeat that quintessential coulda-shoulda-woulda mantra. Like mopping the same spot by the fridge even though it’s going to magically reappear when the kids walk by, or making green smoothies with my Blendtec instead of scheduling a one-on-one date with my stomach and that Key lime pie.

My husband and I recently decided to take our kids on a fun family day downtown. We took the kids to MOSH, let them run around the Friendship Fountain before walking over to River City Brewing Company, and then gave them all ice cream for dessert after lunch. We then hopped on the Skyway, which […]
