{this moment} walking

A Friday ritual. A single photo, without words capturing a moment from the week.

A simple, special, wonderful moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Happy Mama Manifesto

I've been spending more time reading than writing this summer.

On the days when I feel like I'm definitely failing at this whole parenting thing, I dive into the internet and read. I've been inspired other parents. I've been touched by their honesty. I've felt less isolated by reading their stories. I've been reminded that our good days outnumber the bad even when I find myself obsessing about the bad ones.
All this inspired me to write this manifesto. I know all of these things will not happen every day but, if I make these my intention, I know they will happen more often than not.

To both of my dear girls,

Babywearing and Body Image

I wrote this post months ago but never published it. I figure today is as good a day as any...

For me, being a mother is sacred. Being a mother constantly pushes me to my limits and challenges me to be the very best person I can be. It consistently brings out the best and the worst of me. Since I have little ones following me around memorizing and imitating every move I am hyperaware of how all of my actions as an individual affect them. Sometimes this hyperawareness makes me a little anxious and obsessive.  
I have struggled with body image and disordered eating much of my adult life. I make an effort not to make negative remarks about myself out loud and breastfeeding has forced me to eat healthy and eat a lot. Seriously, I am constantly eating.
