10 Year Diaversary and the Top 5 Things I’ve Learned from 10 years with Diabetes

I finally received my Lilly Diabetes 10 Year Award! It’s crazy to think that I was diagnosed with diabetes 10 years ago! My life has changed pretty substantially over those 10 years. I’ve moved to NYC and back. I’ve gotten married, bought a house and had a baby. Despite also having PCOS and Hashimotos, I’ve been […]

Going All In

The best way to get a new wardrobe is to burn all of your clothes.   I remember the first time I heard that. It was several years ago at a PSI Leadership Training Course I was taking. It has stuck with me for all this time. And it really is so true, the best way […]

What To Do When Your Confidence Wavers

The truth about confidence is that it’s all about balance and figuring out how to handle the days when you just don’t have it. It’s like what they say about courage; courage isn’t being brave all the time, courage is knowing when and how to face your fears – and then facing them even when […]

5 Secrets to Unleashing Your Confidence

I am a very confident person. Even on rough days, bloated days, and yucky days, I can still feel pretty confident about myself. But, I definitely have not always been that way. And there are days that I still struggle, but those days are slowly becoming fewer and fewer. There isn’t anything special about me […]

2016: The Year of Adulting

I am a Mother and a Homeowner. Even though I’m 31, I don’t really feel old enough or experienced enough to be either of those things. It’s still weird to hear people refer to me as Mrs. But, 2016 was the year I officially became an adult – or at least became adult enough to be responsible […]

5 Tips For Keeping Integrity While Dealing with Conflict

So, I hate dealing with conflict. Secretly (or not so secretly) I want everyone to be happy and get along. I want everyone to like me. I am going to blame this on growing up in the midwest. Even though I wish everything was sunshine and rainbows all the time, I do know that it’s […]

New Beginnings

I was let go from my job this week. It was hard. When my boss called me into the conference room to have the conversation, I already knew what she was going to say. I don’t know why, but I wasn’t surprised. It was a hard conversation for us to have and it was out […]

The Week After Election

So, I’m not sure if you heard, but there was an election. It was a very powerful election, a very passionate one, and for many people a very painful and terrifying election. I do not think I have ever been so emotionally invested in an election, in my life. Some people are tremendously afraid or […]

I’m Back, Y’all and I’ve Got a Kid!

So, I’ve broken all the rules of the blogosphere and haven’t written a blog post in almost a year. I’m breaking more rules by talking about my radio silence. When I wrote my last blog I had just found out I was pregnant, was working full time, building up our photography business, going to school, […]

I feel like I have not posted a blog in FOREVER. This is probably one of the longest no writing stretches I’ve ever been on. My last post was in August… woah. I have not been posting on Instagram, or Facebook, my Facebook groups, or keeping up with the rest of my social media either. […]
