Evvie+Me: The “Me” Part of the Blog

As bloggers, there's a level of vanity that comes with blogging––you take selfies, you share your life stories and you write with the expectation (well, hopes) that someone will read what you have to say. I tell you about what's going on in my life and (sometimes) you reply… but in all of that I haven't told you about myself.

She Will Have Her (Allergy Friendly) Cake AND Eat It, Too

As someone who has a seriously hard time turning away dessert, I've been determined to find a way for Evvie to enjoy a little slice of heaven. Fortunately, with many other families with our predicament, there has been no shortage of recipe substitutions that we've eagerly tested.

Fall is Upon Us (or Arrived, if You’re in my House)

I could be embarrassed with how long it has taken me to write a blog post since my last article went up, but honestly, it's for good reason. It's no secret that I'm a working Mama. I recently accepted a very generous promotion, but with a promotion comes more responsibility. Sometimes this means I work … Continue reading Fall is Upon Us (or Arrived, if You’re in my House)

Shiny, Clean Car: My Biggest Challenge Yet

Just like the beloved Daniel Tiger sings, "There are lots and lots of feelings, And we can feel them all." In this case, those feelings have most recently been about car buying. Feelings like, EXCITED: I get to get a new car! I cannot wait to get a new car! STRESSED: Which one should I pick? … Continue reading Shiny, Clean Car: My Biggest Challenge Yet

Bear Crawling Isn’t Just for Toddlers

I've talked a lot about how my girls seem to never sleep through the night on the same schedule. One night it's Evan's turn to cry out (her imagination is going wild at this age) and the next it's Collins' turn (teething, crawling, climbing... need I say more?). At this point in my life, I … Continue reading Bear Crawling Isn’t Just for Toddlers

An Open Letter on Mental Health

This isn't an easy post to write. I struggle to even think of how to begin this. But, sadly, more lives are lost each day and I feel that with my own experiences it's my duty to help spread awareness––even if it's just to a few people. Depression. Anxiety. Mood disorders.
