I Got Mommy Guilted Over Maternity Leave, and why it’s not ok. 

There are so many perks to working for yourself. More flexibility. More control and more creative freedoms. With that also comes more responsibility, more hours and often more headaches – because you care about each and every detail of the business you are trying to build. And in my case, it also means no maternity leave. Which is something I’m totally OK with!

I Put My Family On Busy Detox

Is being on the go all the time really better for our kids? Apryl shares how she put her family on a busy detox this summer and loved it!

I’ve heard it over and over and over again: limit screen time. Keep kids active. Get outside and enjoy the day. Go! Go! Go!

Guess what? Sometimes kids, and let’s get real, adults too, really need to chill out.

A Letter to my Unborn Son

A Letter to my Unborn Son

It made me really consider all of the things we value in our family and how different it will be to teach them to a son this time around.  So here it is, my deepest thoughts and wishes for this new life that is soon to arrive, jotted down in a letter that I hope he will one day get the chance to read.
