A letter to moms

As we spend an entire day celebrating us I wanted to write a letter to all the moms out there.   As I started to write this post, I started to think about all the women who have enlisted in this job called motherhood. The moms who are doing their best everyday and are living [...]

8 things that unexpectedly happened after I became a mom

Motherhood is something you cannot describe. It's one of the few things that is indescribable to anyone who is not in the same position. I know, because before I became a mom, I was one of those.   The one who had an exact plan of things I would or would never do. The one [...]
