How to make a change

Going back to regular content after social media supported Black Lives Matter by uplifting black voices last week seems a bit odd. There’s still a discussion in progress that I don’t want to end. People are open to knowing and understanding at this moment in time. I encourage all of us to do better and look at what we can do to change the way race is handled in our country. I will get back to regular content, but I didn’t feel I could return to blogging without getting this post done. I don’t tend to talk about race because… View Post

Lessons from the social distancing thing

Hello all, from a social distancing house. Can you believe what’s going on in the world right now? Did you ever think someone would tell you shouldn’t leave your home? It’s really a tough situation, but we are stronger together. Please give yourself the grace to feel whatever it is you need to feel, but don’t let it overwhelm you.

I don’t know why this blog post is so hard for me to write. I’ve been trying to write it for a week. I strive to be real and authentic on my blog.

News flash: I don’t have it all together. I’m not perfect. I made a list of all the things I want to talk about on my blog… View Post

June break for better content

Hello everyone!  It’s June and it’s the time of the year When I take a small break from the blog. After attending Mom2.0 in April, I learned I need to take my blog in a direction.

I have taken the last week to brainstorm the type of content I want to provide in the next year. I have worked on new ideas and put pen to paper to flush those ideas out. During the time, I have also learned food blogging just… View Post

Friday File: Mother’s Day, Bosch, guilty pleasures, and what I ate

Happy Friday! We’ve made it through the week, and now it’s time for the Friday File. This is my time to run down everything that happened over the week. Honestly, I haven’t made it around to doing a weekly Friday File, but I’m working on it. This week has been a rebuilding week for me. I’m a bit lost without a rigid running schedule and no goals in sight. I have more time to work on building content for this blog, which a massive focus for me the past month. I spent Mother’s Day celebrating and eating way too much… View Post
