National School Breakfast Week

One of my all-time favorite quotes is from the ever inspiring Dale Hayes in the world of childhood hunger and nutrition.  "When students are listening to their hungry stomach they are not listening to their teachers."  This resonates.  Think about when you get hungry, so hungry that it's all you can think about.  Imagine an… Continue reading National School Breakfast Week

Are you prioritizing YOU?

Women are busy.  Throw a kid or two in the mix and you have the perfect recipe for a personal tornado.  But are we doing ourselves any justice?  Are we mindful that we come first? When I became a twin mom to two premature babies my self-prioritization went out the window.  I firmly believed that… Continue reading Are you prioritizing YOU?

One Way I Relate to “This Is Us”

I could not even begin to tell you how many times I've heard phrases like "wow twins, you must be busy", "I couldn't imagine twins", or "they must keep you busy".  I usually just smile politely and say yes but know it my mind that no matter what my heart is full and that's what… Continue reading One Way I Relate to “This Is Us”

Clean living doesn’t need to be expensive!

One of the things I hear most when it comes to clean or "organic" living is that it's expensive.  A lot of my tips and tricks will be centered around helping people live clean for LESS.  No one wants to spend a lot on food, personal care items, and cleaning products. I am super excited… Continue reading Clean living doesn’t need to be expensive!

Lead with Love.

When will we stop living a world that focuses more on ourselves and less on everyone else?  When will we stop allowing the lives of others and their opinions to drive us to hate and violence?  I want to raise my children in a world that doesn't judge the color of your skin, the place of… Continue reading Lead with Love.

Happy “Soon-to-be Mother’s Day”

This was written back in 2012 on my last blog "The PCOS and Infertility Journey" and I always think about it every year before Mother's Day.  Even though I have been a mother for over 5 years now the raw feeling of empty arms still holds a place in my heart, along with all of… Continue reading Happy “Soon-to-be Mother’s Day”

Live Your Passion

What does this mean to you?  What does "Live Your Passion" truly mean?  I had a lot of passion growing up, especially in my teens.  Just ask my parents and then can tell you all about my many passions!  But really, I believed in causes, lived for dance, and a number of other things.  Then… Continue reading Live Your Passion
