Greetings! I want to quickly blog about some social issues regarding interpersonal relationship violence and how we perceive it if the gender roles are reversed. I was recently watching 90 Day Fiancé–it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. I am aware of the horrible examples of relationships that it portrays and no, I do not let the… Continue reading Women that Abuse
Greetings! I have been so pleased lately to find other moms blogging and pleased to know that I am not alone. I have a 7 and a 6 year old-parenting is not new-but now that I have the baby it’s like I’m a renewed mommy. I returned six weeks postpartum with Annabelle and Russell. They… Continue reading Mommy to an Infant: I Almost Forgot How!!

They have so much to… Continue reading Kidsville, Snotty Noses, and Historic New Bern
We survived a downtown event with the kids! It’s commendable for sure. Parking took almost half an hour, people clearly lose their minds when driving in the city. This has been the first year that I’ve attended Wilmington’s Azalea Festival– oddly, I didn’t get a chance to see any azaleas! I did get to be… Continue reading North Carolina Azalea Fest
What a week I’ve had! I visited the ER for some pregnancy complications and have been feeling a bit under the weather. I had no idea how rough gestational diabetes (GD) could be– and I am ashamed honestly. Life happens, stress happens, and depression/anxiety can mutate our bodies and minds into something they are not.… Continue reading High Risk Pregnancies and Juggling Life
