S’mores Cookie Dough Dip

No Matter What You Do, There Will Always Be Someone Who Will Not Approve

I’ve been learning this lesson my whole life. And it seems that the universe has been reiterating this lesson with increasing frequency over the last few years or so.

The “Hype” About Breastfeeding In Public

The “Hype” About Breastfeeding In Public

Let me start by saying that I fully support women who breastfeed uncovered, or covered, just as much as I support moms who give their babies formula. In my mind it doesn’t matter if it’s breast or bottle, as long as they’re getting the nourishment and love they need. I, myself, tried breastfeeding for about a…

What We Should Be Doing With The Start Of Our Day

What We Should Be Doing With The Start Of Our Day

Your alarm goes off in the morning and what do you do? If you’re like millions of people here in the 21st century, you reach for your phone. STOP THAT. Is there some text you received that can’t wait another hour until you’ve finished your morning routine? No. Is that email about a 25% off sale at Nordstrom so riveting that you can’t function until you read it? Nope. Instead of being glued to…
