Welcome to the World, Iris Ariel!

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


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

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 […]

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

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 […]

A Year of Motherhood

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 […]

June 2017 Resolutions!

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?

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 […]

Quieting the New Year

I have to say, I have a good feeling about this year. I’m not sure why, but my instinct is that there is a lot of good to be had in 2017. I also feel like this is the year I make my life smaller and simpler.

My life goals in the past have come very […]

Coming Clean about my Plus Sized Postpartum Body

I have to admit that while I was pregnant I had this sort of dream sequence in which I could breastfeed myself down to my ideal body weight all while bonding with my beautiful little boy. Afterall, breastfeeding burns calories, right?

Uhhh, sure, I guess. The reality is that I sit on the couch all day […]
