Restricting again after all these year

By |June 6th, 2019|Body Love, Daily Confessional|3 Comments

Oh restriction, my old frienemy, welcome back to my life.

I started this blog a long, long time ago. Eleven years ago if memory serves. This blog baby is now a middle schooler. And my life looked a lot different back then. I was a working actress who needed to look a certain way. I was […]

Welcome to the World, Iris Ariel!

By |May 6th, 2019|Daily Confessional|3 Comments

Before Ethan was born I was so scared about how the birthing process would play out. People like to bombard pregnant women with the horror stories of their own birth experiences. Smiling and nodding through nine months of the gory details of other peoples’ nether regions is sort of a pregnancy rite of passage.

As it […]

May Resolutions

Tap…tap…can you hear me?

Is anyone out there?
Oh, there you are, one person, who still reads this blog.
How are you?
Long time, huh.
I fell off the blogging bandwagon a long time ago. Sure, I posted every few months for a while, because I still loved this space, but I’d sort of lost my passion for the medium. […]

How to age a decade in a 31 days…and a resolution

By |September 4th, 2017|Daily Confessional, Resolutions|7 Comments

Guys,

August was a doozie.

I had such big plans for my last month of full-time momming, but life has a way of surprising you for better and for worse.

The month started out in true Miller-family fashion: drama. I often joke that my parents are the luckiest unlucky people I’ve ever met. If something bad is going […]

The Magical Art of Imperfection

By |August 3rd, 2017|Daily Confessional|4 Comments

For better or worse, one of the most drastic changes in my personality since having a child has been a shift away from my perfectionism. 

For the majority of my life I lived by the belief that if it wasn’t perfect it wasn’t worth it. If I made a mistake in my penmanship, I wouldn’t just […]

New Month. New Resolutions. New Book. (And a New Giveaway Winner)

By |August 1st, 2017|Beautiful Bodies, Giveaways, Resolutions|4 Comments

I’m a cartoon! Sort of. I promise that I won’t make my entire blog a commercial for my new book. But, you know, it’s exciting, and I think that little bookmercial is just about the coolest thing ever. (I’m also simultaneously glad they didn’t make one for Coming Clean, because that would have been awkward). 

So, about […]

The Birth of Beautiful Bodies (and a Giveaway!)

By |July 23rd, 2017|Beautiful Bodies, Body Love, Books, Giveaways|47 Comments

 

It’s time for another birth story. This time it’s a book baby, and while just as much sweat and screaming went into this labor of love as my last one, there were far fewer stitches, thank goodness.

I remember when Coming Clean was published, thinking that I would never be able to do it again, to […]

Remember that time that I got mono and my spleen ruptured?

By |July 9th, 2017|Daily Confessional|9 Comments

I’ve always felt like I was pretty in-tune with my body, at least in regard to health. I’m the kind of person who could tell you exactly when they were ovulating or would leave a party because I was tired and sleep was more important than socializing. But, I’ve been feeling pretty rundown for a […]

My home, my body

By |June 16th, 2017|Body Love|5 Comments

Nine months ago I wrote a blog about my feelings regarding my postpartum body, how hard it was to look at my newly plus sized figure. I was just three months into this momming business. I hadn’t slept more than two hours a night for 90 days. I was breastfeeding and pumping constantly to increase […]
