Tips to Make Working from Home Productive

I went back to work eight weeks after having my son, Cohen. It wasn’t easy, but I was fortunate. I was able to work part-time from home and part-time in the office and my in-laws provided free daycare. I’ll admit, I had an idealized vision of working from home. Babies nap all the time, right? […]

Sunday Meal Planning Series {A Healthier Cobb Salad}

Our family eats a lot of salads during the summer. I’m fortunate that my three-year-old loves salad. Other vegetables are a challenge, but for some reason he likes salad.

It all started with the pregnancy and birth of my baby girl in 2013, which coincided with my growing affection for Instagram.

An Unexpected Visitor: Postpartum Anxiety

Like most first time parents-to-be, my husband and I read the baby books, took a birth prep class and decorated the nursery according to my Pinterest board. We checked off the checklists and felt confident we were prepared for anything that would be thrown our way. We discussed the “baby blues,” and the warning signs […]
