That's probably not something you'll hear from anyone who puts any kind of time and energy into their blog, and you're maybe a little confused. You can't know how many times over the past few months I have tried to write this post and then deleted it. I'm getting super tired of doing that, so … Continue reading You Might Need to Stop Reading My Blog.
Y'all. Some days... Mama said there'd be days like this. Ready for some vulnerability? Right now my kitchen is half-tiled and my clothes don't fit.

"It took nine … Continue reading Trending: Postpartum

I could go on and on with the sappy … Continue reading Natalie Emolyn.
Someone recently said "I feel like I'm waiting for something that isn't going to happen." Sheesh. You and me both, sister. It's hard to believe that in 4 more days (if not sooner), we will have another person in our family. In all of my free time, I managed to overestimate my Walmart grocery pick-up and … Continue reading Muffins, Outfits, and The Wait.
