The Truth About Postpartum Depression

There was no doubt in my mind that having a baby wasn’t going to be easy. The funny part is Ellie is an easy baby. She is so good, so happy, so sweet and perfect. I truly feel so lucky. The hardest part, honestly, was me. Now don’t get me Read more →

28 For 28

Happy weekend! This weekend is super awesome because it’s my birthday weekend! I’ll be 28 on Sunday. Getting older, maybe wiser, definitely luckier. Things are pretty good on my end of life right now. Just like last year, I thought I’d go ahead and list a number of things I Read more →

Double Weekly Recap

Holy life, Batman. Wowza. Spring break, thank you world. I didn’t get a single post up last week. Life just laid into me. Exhaustion hit me like a ton of bricks and there was more than one night where I was in bed shortly after 8pm. Ellie is going through Read more →

A Week Of Perfect Runs

Accepting When You Miss A Workout

I’m off work this week and had grand plans for my workouts. But you know what? Life still happens. Even though Rob is home during the day and I could work out at times that I prefer, I made a point to stick to my “schedule” and still do all Read more →

The First Week

Welp, last week didn’t quite go as planned- workout wise that is. The rest of the week was okay. Exhausting, but okay. Monday of last week was hard. I’ve been away from Ellie before but never for more than a couple of hours. Nine hours was another story. I definitely Read more →

The Hardest Day

You guys. I had to put on waterproof mascara today. I’m back at work and I have no idea how I will handle today. I haven’t left Ellie for more than about three hours before and when I did I thought about her constantly. I will admit that I am Read more →
