Reflections 2017 

And so 2017 has come to an end and as I look back at the year that went by so quickly I would never have thought I’d be a mom of a beautiful little boy. How amazing is that though, the beginning of the year I was a mom of two just going about life and minding my own business and adamant that two kids is enough financially and for my sanity and at the

Story Time – Our Wedding day

Story Time - Our Wedding day

I remember being nervous that whole week before the wedding; I couldn’t believe I was getting married to the most perfect guy for me. It had taken us a year and half to get to that point.

But no more, this

My worst fear is not being able to protect my children… from this insanely dangerous and tough world. I think that I am my own worst enemy in this sense because I can’t control my fears and my fears sometimes make me feel depressed and anxious. With so much happening in this cruel world, I think my fears are pretty normal and practically everyone that I know feels the same or have experienced dangerous situations

How to be a confident mommy

How to be a confident mommy

I think most of us moms struggled with body confidence at some stage of our lives, whether it was when we picked up a little weight, had a baby or at some point let ourselves go. Now by all means and a little disclaimer, we all are beautiful and unique in our own way, and by no means am I saying that body confidence is bad and make us feel inadequate. Being confident as a
