NEW POST! Any other hedgie owners out there? I've shared what it's like having a pet hedgehog on the blog today. Sonic is 8 months old and we've had him for well over a month now. He's come a long way and we just love him so much! If you, or anyone you know, is considering getting a pet hedgehog, be sure to read this first and share! ... See MoreSee Less
Mamas, take time for yourself. I know there's a huge emphasis on "me time" and self care, but whatever it is that gives you a break---make the time for it.

It was so worth the wait, felt so wonderful, and I look forward to that time so much. I treated myself to a Starbucks and took my time getting groceries all by myself. I listened to my Podcasts and just had a simple, wonderful evening.
It was on my heart to share this again. This isn't just regarding pregnant women, but just don't comment on people's bodies. I don't know why people do, some just don't have a filter. My height (I'm >6 feet tall) gets commented on all the time. I don't care, I really don't, but people think it's okay to comment on this part of my body. I have someone I rarely see who always comments on how "thin" I am, and I know it's because they dislike it when people are overweight, and it makes me feel all icky.
You never know what battle someone is fighting, so just be kind---especially on social media! ... See MoreSee Less
