Are you a crunchy mom?

Find your tribe in a

I’ve been watching a lot of “Friends” on Netflix lately. It reminds me how important it is to find that group of people that help you get through life’s ups and downs. If you’re reading this, you almost certainly know that being a parent is not easy. Stay-at-home-mom life is a blessing, but can also be very lonely at times. Of course, you have some of the sweetest and most rewarding moments you’ve ever experienced, but it can also be physically and emotionally exhausting. What I’ve realized is that finding another group of moms (or dads!) has been just what

Embrace the changing stages of life as a mom.

This was not the old familiar day from birthday’s past with hand-crafted locally-sourced party favors. This

Can we be honest for a second? It’s HARD work to be a mom. And in a world filled with mom wars, shaming and bashing, it can be even harder. We all work relentlessly to be a good mom.
