What I’ve Learned: 2017 In Review

I haven’t done a year in review since the close of 2014. A LOT has changed since then and it’s the only reason I’m going to write one for this year. So where do I begin? Well, I started my year off with a bang when I discovered that I had a goiter growing and eventually I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s and Hypothyroidism. While my … Continue reading What I’ve Learned: 2017 In Review

All the Ways I Plan to Treat Myself – 4 Cheap Ways to Self Care

Recovery has been an absolute draaaag albeit necessary.  I have slid back into my 9-5 though thanks to the graciousness of my boss; I am working from home.

Things Looking Up

That’s right! The awful wait is over and ya girl is fabulously cancer free! I don’t think I can ever adequately describe the fear that enveloped my mind at the thought of having cancer of any sort.

There’s No Neat Way

I often separate my depression blog entries from my mommy blog. I mean, parenthood is supposed to be more about the growing pains of family life; how could depression possibly fit into that? Yea. Right. The more things change within my family dynamic I realize I can’t really separate these two facets of my life. They are determined to coexist. Postpartum is always particularly tough … Continue reading There’s No Neat Way

And Just When I Thought I Had it All Together

I look up and realize I have not posted in this blog in a year. A WHOLE YEAR. Now this isn’t to say that I haven’t been blogging…but I’ve totally neglected this blog. And I guess the reality is…transitioning from SAHM to working mom means there aren’t as many crafting days with the kiddies…and parenting has not been the blast I wanted it to be … Continue reading And Just When I Thought I Had it All Together
