Happy Friday guys! The other day, I was chatting with a friend and learned about a talent of hers that I had never known about. So, I thought it would be fun to share something you didn't know about me...... Continue reading

In my former pre-mom life, I worked out 4-6 times a week. It was what I did in my spare time, and I loved every minute (well, most minutes) of it. These days though, I can barely get in a... Continue reading

HI Allison, I always try and provide a range of price points. And often you’ll see in the “similar” link, there are items that are similar but in a lower price point ;) Best, Joy

I have to admit...I've been eating terribly lately. Because I'm nursing, I'm hungry ALL THE TIME up until the minute I fall asleep. Which means you'll find me snacking on chips, nachos, crackers, and chocolate at 10pm and then falling... Continue reading

Thank you! I couldn’t find the details on it so I’m happy you shared the info! Will update that now! Joy
Hey Miranda! Thanks! I always try to include pieces that are currently available but it’s not always possible and sometimes things sell out from the time we shoot the photos to when it goes up. Which is why if I know something is no longer available then we always have options for something similar! Joy
Ha thanks! ;) Joy

While we might still be okay with putting a bird on it, it's gotta be a bird of the exotic type these days. So here's my mini flamingo hanging with her mama swan in our cozy bird-inspired outfits. Mama Outfit... Continue reading

Try not to feel guilty. Once you can be a little easier on yourself, it will help you feel like you can manage everything in the best way possible for you and your family. Everyone will still love you the same whether you cook a homemade meal or not! Joy

It totally is a phase and you will get the hang of it soon! I felt super useless in the first few months of being a mother to two kids and had a hard time wrapping my head around how to juggle it all. It gets better, and you start to just figure out what works best for you and your family. And when you can be a little less hard on yourself, that helps too! It’s a constant struggle for me, but it helped a lot once I accepted that I didn’t have to do it all and my family would still love me the same ;) Joy

Thank you! That means a lot. I am sure being an athlete makes it even harder to have your body change like that and like you said, not be able to physically do everything you’re used to. But remember some day, your kids will be older and you’ll be able to get back to your exercise routine (if you haven’t already) and your kids will get to be inspired by what an awesome athlete their mom is!

Thanks Daniela! Also, I know what you mean about the impression people get from bloggers, and I don’t think bloggers ever try to claim that their life is perfect. It’s just that as it the case with social sharing, we show only a certain part of our lives publicly and oftentimes, those are the “prettier” moments…as some of the messier moments are also private too. I think if we all can feel a bit more confident in who we are and what we’re good at, seeing other people kick butt in what they’re good at won’t make us feel so bad. I am guilty of it too, but I try and remember what my strengths are and own it! Joy
