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

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

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 […]

Wistful about working

Like any job, there are positives and negatives to being self-employed. Maternity leave is both. The positive is that I can choose to take as long a leave as I’d like. The negative is that we’re a one-income household for however long that is. I decided while I was pregnant that I would give myself […]

Greetings from our Babymoon

The Fella  and I are spending the week in the Dominican Republic for a little babymoon. Wait, did I forget to mention that I’M PREGNANT? 🙂

It didn’t exactly slip my mind (between the nausea and the constant exhaustion it’s been pretty hard to forget); we wanted to wait until I was past my first trimester and all […]
