Who is encouraging you? {#Wholemama Roundup}

A big part of my becoming in this #wholemama life has been learning who to listen to, finding voices that encourage me to be more at ease in my own skin, and taking note of the things that speak to me in a meaningful way.

Daily Brave {#wholemama}

I am not brave. But then I am. I play it safe sometimes, but then big decisions and little alike push me past my tolerance and I move ahead: Brave and trembling. Willing or not.

Yes, we will have heart shaped food for now, … Continue reading The Little Moments and the Years – Happy Valentines

five years this week <3

I used to think that when people fell in love, they just landed where they landed, and they had no choice in the matter afterward. And maybe that's true of beginnings, but it's not true of this, now.
