Wife. Working Mama. Chief Diaper Changer. Lover of Rosè.
I work full time. I’m not shy about saying I chose to go back to work. I could have stayed home with my kids. Financially, we could’ve continued life in the city with just Dan’s income. I still didn’t stay home.I chose to continue my career. Cue the shock and horror. It’s ok. Really. I … Continue reading It’s like losing an arm
So I was raised by the ultimate hopeless romantic. In my mother’s defense, she was surrounded by easy love stories in her life. Some of the stories honestly were better than the movies.

I don’t remember exactly when I met her, but I vaguely remember it being a gym class where we were all forced to country line dance. … Continue reading When ants go marching
Survival mode has a mama style…who knew!?!

I grew up taking dance lessons and playing softball, while Dan played baseball and football among other things. So these were obviously conversations as options for our kids once they reached the appropriate ages. Swim lessons were … Continue reading Swim School Dropout
I said “I do” to my other half almost five years ago. One of the perks to being married means I no longer have to swim in the dating pool. I was comically awful at it. I mean awful. Anyone play board games with their families? Mine does every Christmas. My dating life before Dan … Continue reading How to Date Your Husband
