    What No One Warned Me About Motherhood

    Becoming a mom is a huge transition for any woman. You suddenly have another person depending on you (and your partner) for everything. You love this person more than anything in the world, and your life completely changes from the moment they enter it. According to all the books and blog posts, I was prepared to become a mom nearly 5 years ago. I had the gear, I had the clothes, I had the books, and I was as emotionally ready for this little person as I could be. I knew that she would change me. I listened to my…

    Keeping Your Marriage Strong After Baby

    Keeping Your Marriage Strong After Baby

    Happy Tuesday!  A few weeks back I did a guest post on Simply Clarke, and I wanted to share it with you today.  It’s so hard to keep your marriage a priority once a baby joins your family, and Chris and I have really had to work hard at it. Both Chris and I  feel it’s important to have a strong marriage, and have learned a lot in the past year or so about making sure we make each other feel important, needed, and loved.  I really want Abbie to see positive role models in her parents and our relationship,…
