How having a baby changed how I think about my career

I think it was in middle school when I declared I wanted to be a lawyer. I knew you had to work really hard to be one, work long hours, and you could be really successful doing it. I told my parents this is what I wanted to do and for most of my undergraduate college years I still thought that way. I even sat for the LSAT my junior year at UT. At that time, I wasn’t concerned about…

7 Lessons Learned in my First Year as a Mom

I have officially been a mom for a year now. It has honestly been one of the best years of my life. I know so many people say that but the reason so many people say it is because it’s true! My love grows for my family every day. The past year has had some tough moments too and some great learning experiences. Becoming a mom has been amazing but there is a lot I have had to learn in…

Big Move

Life changes when you have a baby.  I can’t tell you how many times I was told this while I was pregnant.  And it’s absolutely, 100% true. Having Adyson is one of the best things that have happened to my husband and me.  It’s also been one of the hardest.  Raising a human is TOUGH!  But what changes isn’t just your sleep, the amount of showers you take, or your finances, it’s also the way you think. My husband and…

There are numerous things I looked forward to when I found out I was pregnant.  And with my beliefs on food, one of them was being able to make homemade baby food.  I hate that there are so many chemicals and crazy things in our food so I want to start my daughter’s life in a healthy way.  Knowing that I’m making the food means I know exactly what’s in there. I enjoy cooking sometimes but I wouldn’t call myself…

Check-In: Six Months Post Baby

Six months.  Our little girl is already 6 months old.  I can’t believe it.  It seems like it’s gone so fast but at the same time, so slow. If you would have asked me 6 months ago where I thought I would be at this point, it’s pretty laughable.  I would tell you that my baby would be completely sleeping through the night, I would be fitting back in my favorite pair of jeans, and would have being Super Mom…

When I quit my job – without a plan

Planning.  I am all about it.  I am a planner and I like knowing what’s going to happen.  My husband isn’t a planner at all so this actually works for us.  I take care of our calendar, the household things we need to plan, events, and I’m happy to. But what happens when you’re planning goes WAY off course?  When the things you always thought would happen a certain way… don’t?  And when you suddenly feel lost and question a…
