Happy Valentine’s Day! In typical “me” fashion, I saw a picture online (likely thanks to Pinterest) of Conversation Heart Cookies and the first thing I … Read More
Ten Years ago, I didn’t have any tattoos. And I’m not sure that I even saw myself getting any one day.
It’s enough to be good enough. When we were going through a particularly rough time with Archer recently, it was recommended to us by his day care providers that we take this course, Circle of Security International – Early Intervention Program for Parents and Children. My initial, internal reaction was to say no. A parenting … Read More
SURPRISE!! We’re in the Dominican Republic! I didn’t get to go back to Mexico, but we surprised my family on a trip for my cousin’s 40th birthday and are in the DR for 8 days! Let me break it down for ya! Spring of 2018 I was texting with my cousin Eric’s wife, Ashley. Eric is … Read More
It has been SO HARD not to message everyone and ask how they’re liking my book. What they think about the book itself and whether they think I’m off my rocker forming my stories into a book at all. Not hearing from them has been even harder. There are stories in there that I haven’t … Read More
Let’s Travel the World! We decided to take our first big trip as a completed family of four when Maverick was only four months old. There wasn’t a more fitting place for us to visit than…MEXICO! Since Puerto Vallarta holds a very dear place in our hearts, it was the obvious choice. But Brad and … Read More

I have set out in the past to do daily challenges and I have never succeeded…I am happy to report that has changed! I did it! I did yoga for 33 days in a row (and, who knows, today is still not over!). I incorporated my own weekly yoga practice at our complex rec centre … Read More
In this moment, I am consciously vulnerable. I am moments away from pressing send and allowing 7 people in my life to read my memoir.
MANAGER WHO MOMS? OR MOM WHO MANAGES?
Welcome! And Bienvenido!
Kidding! I don’t speak any other languages. Not fluently, anyways. I can get by in French, know a few greetings in Croatian and can definitely order a drink in Spanish. But that’s about it.
If you have a look at … Read More
I am and always have been a crafty person. For years in my early adulthood, I spent hours scrapbooking. I took great pleasure in printing my memories and making them look beautiful on the page. Fastforward a few years and I have finally admitted to myself and accepted that I just don’t have the time … Read More
Dear Rachael? I think it took me longer to name my book than it did for me and Brad to name our children. We had Archer’s name, including his middle name, chosen before we had even started trying to have a baby. Brad chose Archer’s name, and then our dog’s name, so when it came … Read More
The thought of writing a blog has crossed my mind several times over the last year or so, especially since I have decided to work towards writing as a career. Sitting down to do it, however, hasn’t happened until now. I am coming close to being able to say that I have written a book. … Read More
