2 Month baby update!

February 2020 Today, my sweet Archer is officially 8 weeks old. 2 months. 2 months have gone by. They've been the longest months of my life, but they seem to have flown by. Oh My how he's grown so much in such a short time. My 6lbs baby is already 11 lbs! He's smiling, cries …

Pregnancy Doesn’t Have To Be Miserable!

As we are getting closer and closer to our little guy being here, my mind starts to look full circle. I often find myself looking back at this journey and everything it’s been for me. It’s been a surprising 9 months for sure!

Giving Yourself Permission To Cut Off Toxic Family Members- Because Forgiveness Won’t Change Their Behavior.

I’ve done a pretty great job at making myself and my mental health a priority, especially when it comes to toxic relationships, overall but specifically with family members. I have put in the grueling effort to create boundaries, voice those boundaries, and keep them.

Thanksgiving 2019- Giving Thanks

1 Thessalonians 516 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.(NIV) With Thanksgiving fast approaching there are people hustling about finishing up their work week, running last minute errands, and jumping into the kitchen to make the feast they dream about all year.

I quit my job!

Red flags that might mean your job is hurting your mental health. Yep, you read that right. I quit my job. Just two short months after my start date. Which to be completely honest still gives me some feelings of shame/guilt. My mind tries to convince me that I'M the one who couldn't cut it. …

The Importance of Intentionally Making Time For Your Partner – Learning To Adjust With The Space.

Starting out a bit later on this post, but the day got away from me! We had some rain in the morning which always puts me in a calm mood. So, I took advantage of the quiet steadiness and sat down with my coffee until mid afternoon. Our weekend was filled with equal parts down …

My Pregnancy Hormones Don’t Diminish The Validity Of My Mental Health Struggles.
