If you’re reading this, you are probably feeling a little overwhelmed, stretched thin, or at the very least, discontent. You probably crave some order, a slower pace, calm and simplicity. I’m with you, friend. I have been intentionally working to be more content, more mindful, and to create a simpler life for me and my family. And I can tell you that it is WORK but it is WORTH IT.
Cold season is upon us, so this is a good time to share some natural remedies for colds and cough. It is important to understand that there really isn’t any way to actually get rid of a cold virus. The best you can do is help the body fight the virus and give the sick person some comfort by suppressing the symptoms. That can be done with over-the-counter medications, but there are also natural cold and cough remedies that can be quite effective.
Sometimes we sort of lose ourselves in the day-to-day and don’t even realize it. I think this happens especially when we first become moms. You suddenly have this other person whose needs you have to constantly think about, and it’s easy to just sort of let yourself fade away.

There has been a lot of attention on women’s body image issues lately. Mom’s are posting their bikini-clad post-baby bodies left and right. And I think it’s awesome. I want women to feel great about their bodies.
But I’m just not going to jump on the bikini-bandwagon. Can’t do it. As much as I’d love to be the type of woman who proudly displays her “tiger stripes” as a childbearing badge of honor, I’m just not her.
