Describing myself in one line is way too much pressure. That is probably a perfect bio now that I think about it.

These are all lovely but Melanie's are my favorite.

I really love this and its so so true. The first time I saw my mother cry she was writing bills and wasn't sure we'd have enough to cover them. It was one of the first really real moments of my childhood and the point in which I realized that my mother was human and not storybook perfect and that it was ok.

Like most people I have a tendency to let the week beat me down. By Friday I get very THE WORLD CAN SUCK IT and figured that perhaps a good habit to get into would be to think of my very favorite thing from the week to help me coast... Continue reading

So, the last week or so I've been struggling. This schedule absolutely works for us but its getting to me the last few days. Would I trade getting up at 7 for picking him up at 2:15? No way. But I've got to admit, this week I'm struggling. My normal... Continue reading

This post should really be titled "Why the fuck is mass produced art so god damn expensive?" but I'm really really trying to focus on the positive right now. We've got a huge headboard that is flanked by two very lovely, very low end tables. Those end tables are below... Continue reading

I meant to reply actually a million years ago to this which is fitting lol. In the beginning it was so hard to acknowledge. You really go into it thinking that women do this all the time. I SHOULD be able to handle this easily. Then when you realize that you really can't its a double let down to yourself. I was on the path that you did with your son for a while. I was just fine. Doing fine in my fineness and stop asking me if I'm okay WHAT DO I NOT LOOK OKAY TO YOU SORRY BUT I AM FINE ALIRGHT!! But I'm glad that for your second you didn't have that problem. I'm hopeful that when I try again, I'll be like you were for #2. That was my thought. Its sad that we still live in a society, as a whole, that shames you for taking care of mental health instead of just dealing with it. Having a newborn is hard to begin with without PPD hovering over your head. But the more of us that talk about it and how bad it sucks the better imo.

So since returning to work I've struggled big time with feeling like I've got my shit together at any level. My day starts early and ends late. Most days all I want to do is climb back under the covers and give up. But working full time, taking care of... Continue reading

I really love this and the fact that this person is like, Does it suck? Yep. Because lets be honest, I'd rather be eating cupcakes. And copious amounts of pasta. With a side of cheesecake. Also an entire loaf of bread with a whole stick of butter.

You probably can do the corn chowder though right? Or does corn count due to the starch?

1. BLT Pesto Pasta - I made this with spinach instead of parsley because why not get in some iron. I also left out the lettuce in the finished pasta as we're not fans of the wilted stuff. I also warmed the tomatoes thru in the bacon fat. It was... Continue reading

You are the sweetest and I am hugging your face right now. Can you feel it?
I felt ripples in the force of our love minute by minute. I felt it big time. Also that is so funny because I derive a lot of my braveness and amazingness and wonderfulness by surrounding myself with amazing/wonderful/brave friends like you.
I think you might be right. Like I had a bunch of women tell me while I was pregnant how they fell in love instantly and like spent their days as a brandy new mom rocking their sleeping newborn peacefully while flocks of doves flew overhead. TBH tho I think a lot of that was mommybrain'd into these wistful moments with your newborn and how glorious it all was when really you just don't really remember it all. Like if you ask me now its already getting hard to describe how I felt, just how bad it was, just how often we were up at night. You were perfect. Really and for true. Like the biggest thing when I think of that got me thru everything is immediately the Zoloft then Steph coaching me thru everything because you knew exactly what I needed to hear and how I needed to hear it. Oh gurl I still do. We am mom. We know best. Nobody can look after them like we can. It's hard breaking that, I only have marginally. While it may be true that doesn't mean that somebody else looking after them isn't totally ok so you can shower/pee/run an errand. I love you so very much. YOU are a great mom and a great BFF.
So this isn't really the type of post that I'd intended to start out with. In my head I was hoping for something upbeat and happy and I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT LIFE RIGHT NOW because that's the place I'm in currently. However, I wanted to get this out of... Continue reading
