Mothers: Y’all alright? There’s this really amazing thing that happened to me when I was pregnant and after I gave birth. Women, near and far checked in on me. Randomly, without a specific reason. It seems like just yesterday I was caring for a newborn in what felt like new world. Prior to Harper’s birth […]Read more "ADORE"
I’m elated. Looking back on milestone moments in my life I’ve always felt a certain level of excitement to the unknown. Whenever I couldn’t comfortably predict an outcome there was always a certain level of fear but also joy in not knowing what will happen next. I think the earliest memories of the sheer joy […]Read more "J U B I L A T I O N"
The only constant I can depend on is change.

It was easy for those whom loved us to see our time as less valuable. Our time wasn’t being filled with changing diapers, feeding babies and maintaining a household. The concept […]Read more "Mothering of the Tribe"
COLDNESS. The first heavy snow storm of the season brought a crispness to the air. The cold was harsh and unforgiving. Although I’m more of a fan of warmer weather I was looking forward to the snow. Meteorologists predicted heavy snow fall and I waited with an eagerness I haven’t experienced in years. BRISKNESS. I […]Read more "GELIDITY"

Life happens to people, whether they’re deemed unsavory or […]Read more "The Stories of Our Lives"
