I Just Put Jesus Christ Superstar On for My Toddler

I just put Jesus Christ Superstar on for my 21 month old. I’m three weeks postpartum and recovering from an emergency c-section and needless to say, it’s been a challenge keeping up with my 21 month old son. This magnificent specimen of toddler is, to say the least, an incredibly spirited child. On one hand, […]

Regret: Learning the Hard Way

There’s nothing like losing a parent and becoming a parent to rock your perspective and force you into reflecting upon your life choices. It’s incredibly growth-provoking and painfully humbling.   (I’m sitting here and trying to organize my thoughts for this post, so if it’s all over the place I’m really sorry, hang with me!) […]

Macaron: A macaron is a French sweet meringue‑based confection made with egg white, icing sugar, granulated sugar, almond powder or ground almond, and food coloring.   Aren’t they beautiful? I am officially obsessed with these divine little pastries. I’ve always seen them on Pinterest or in beautiful magazine spreads, thinking of them as the unicorn […]

Tiny Toes

There’s nothing like a vivacious 6 month old baby to really make you rethink your priorities. I remember when I would NEVER go a day without plucking my eyebrows, devoting significant time on my hair, and doing full face makeup… oh how the mighty have fallen. Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t completely abandoned these luxuries, […]
