Today Maya is nine months old. Sunday was Mother’s Day. Yes, I’m in my feelings. Motherhood is like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I thought because I grew up with my mother, I had some idea what to expect once I became a mother myself,…

LIFE | The 2016 Word of the Year is EXECUTE

If I’m being 100% honest, 2015 is one of the best years I’ve ever had. 2015 has been an amazing journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance. I know who I am as a blogger and burgeoning business owner, and who I know who I’m not. I’ve defined…
