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|3 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!)

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 […]

A Year of Motherhood

By |June 7th, 2017|Daily Confessional|1 Comment

This week marks a year that our Little Fella has been in our life. In many ways I feel like the same person I’ve always been, just with a tiny buddy who looks just like me, makes a big mess, and deters me from actually getting anything done professionally. In other ways I know that […]

Happy June!

The last two months have been a whirlwind. Would you believe that we just wrapped up renovations on the house this week?! We’ve been living in a state of moving chaos boxtopia for two months. It was pretty rough, but as soon as the renos finished we were able to unpack the remaining boxes […]

We’ve Moved! Can we Move Back?

By |April 18th, 2017|Daily Confessional|9 Comments

Hello from the suburbs!

I’ll be honest ya’ll, this isn’t a super easy breezy transition for me.

I miss New York City every day. I have yet to get through a day without wondering if we could just call this whole grand experiment a mistake and go running back to our old life in New York City.

I […]

Happy March!

Spring is right around the corner. In fact, New York City is feeling a bit manic about weather these days, as we alternate between 60 degrees and sunny and 30 degrees and snowy. The change of season is always a little rough.

This will be our last month as city folk. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! […]
