For those of you who aren't from San Diego, Mt Soledad is located … Continue reading I’m Engaged!
Hi Friends! Coming at you today with more of a blog update. I rebranded my site. Finally. I know, it took me long enough, right?! Ha! So since about a year ago I wasn't entirely happy with the look of my site. Also, I couldn't figure out how I wanted to come across in my … Continue reading Rebranding My Blog
We may not all say it out loud. We may not all feel the same crisis either. But with certainty I can say most of us have felt this at some point in our lives. You know what I'm talking about. The me before kids. Remember her? She was carefree, maybe had a wild spirit … Continue reading Identity Crisis: Mourning The ME Before I Had My Daughter.
It came. Thirty. There was no big party, no crazy off the chart night to go down in the books. Instead, there was a quiet but eventful celebration. Just a quaint outdoor gathering (done safely and with masks) with just a few of my closest family. It was actually kinda nice to have less than … Continue reading Thirty…Now what?
It is my last day being 29. I can't seem to wrap my head around it. Having a milestone birthday in the middle of a pandemic, and on Election day no less, has me in a whirlwind of emotions. It's crazy to think that tomorrow I'll be 30. I will have completed a whole decade … Continue reading Today is my last day in my Twenties
It's been a minute since I have updated you all. Life is crazy around here but we finally have a good routine going again. It seemed like for a while there we were never going to get back into a routine. But here we are. We're here...surviving, living and grateful. In person school started recently. … Continue reading The New Normal
Today, I wanna talk about my journey with my fiddle leaf fig. I've had my Fiona (aka Fiddle leaf) for just over a year. I bought her in April 2019. We have had our ups and downs, but that comes along with being a plant lady. Fiddle's are well known for being temperamental. And mine has spared no mercy.
Image courtesy of @Littlemissmomma on Instagram It has taken me a couple weeks or so to gather my words for this. I originally had thoughts on the matter before Stevie left this world. But...after finding out that Stevie Lynn Stock passed away last week, my heart has felt heavy. Even saying her name is almost … Continue reading Stars for Stevie: Make every day count.
Everyday I wake up is another day I come to the realization that our world is ever changing. It's another day I wake up to terrible news. It's another day I think of how to explain these current events to my daughter as she gets older. I struggle, like many of you, with the fact … Continue reading It’s time to wake up.
Welp. I'm here to say it's been a tough autumn! I got sick with a terrible cough about 3 weeks before my birthday, and then got a terrible case of vertigo for the first time ever about 1 week after my birthday. All and all I'd say October and November have been all the buzz. … Continue reading A Wild Flower
Lately I have been questioning is this it for me. Is being in a committed relationship and being a mom all there is to me? Is that all there is in this world? It feels like it at times. I'm here to say I don't feel fulfilled. I am never fully satisfied and always want … Continue reading Autumn

Styling a plant on its own takes time, an eye for style, the right elements … Continue reading Plant Styling & Care (Indoors)
I think it's safe to say that no one has a harder time waking up than a parent. Even more so, a mother who has to get herself along with several of her kids ready all on her own and make it out the door on time for work. It's hard as hell! I only … Continue reading Morning Routine
