If you’re a mama, you know doctors recommend you abstain from sex for 6-8 weeks after you’ve just given birth. Question: Does everyone really wait? Four weeks post postpartum, I felt my sexiest. As a result, I had a voluminous bosom, a smaller waist and the new mama glow. How can anyone wait to have […]
My parents have been planning an RV road trip from San Diego to Seattle for months. My niece is turning 2 and I wanted to be there but was on the fence about traveling with my 2 month old son. My husband was going to be out of town anyways so I decided to jump […]
In honor of August being Breastfeeding Awareness month, I would like to share my story of the first time I nursed my daughter in public. As a first time mom, this whole world is new to me. My daughter was not the first baby to be breastfed, but she was the first baby in my […]

I wear yoga pants most days. I even bought a pair of Lulu Lemons to join my fellow moms in the “active wear” is life movement. I’ll say, most days I am totally cool with rocking a t-shirt and some spandex but there are those days when I want to feel a little more put […]
I have been breastfeeding for years it seems like. Four kids in four years and breastfeeding or pumping for all of them has been exhausting to say the least, but oh so worth it.
