Growing up in New York, pizza was my favorite food. Not much has changed now that I’m an old(er) lady with a well-defined palate. One of my favorite pizzas is just your traditional, basic Margherita pizza with tomatoes, basil, and fresh mozzarella. There’s something about the simplicity of this pizza that just comforts me.
Everyone has a postpartum story. This is part of mine.
I have never felt more alone than I have after giving birth.
I was browsing on Instagram the other day and one of the fellow crunchy moms I follow said something that I felt with all my being. Summed up, she said that being someone who lives a “crunchy” lifestyle is hard. It’s tiring to pay attention to everything we consume, put on our skin, clean our homes with, make sure that our clothes are made from eco-friendly fibers and more. But we do it with intentions of providing our loved ones a healthier lifestyle and friends, we need the pampering–but not from Calgon. In order to pamper the crunchy mom in your life, you need to go about things a little differently.
Long walks down Target aisles without children is definitely one the gifts of life that are free– minus whatever hundred you end up spending. But with Mother’s Day being around the corner (literally) you can’t go wrong with taking a stroll down the aisles for the mom in your life for a present. The best thing: they have presents for whatever moms are interested in!
My husband and I have been married for 5 years. To some, we’re still in our honeymoon phase but trust me, we didn’t have one. Within the 5 years of marriage and x years of being together, we’ve amassed 3 kids, moved 3 times, couldn’t pay bills, and started a business. And you know what? Every morning we wake up still excited (yes excited) to be married to each other. Instead of keeping my secrets, I figured I would share what makes a happy marriage work for us.
