  • I needed help. 
Life is hectic. Life is hard sometimes. 
That is reality. Sometimes we forget to take a moment and breathe and allow for time to take care of you. I know I used to never worry about me. I wanted to take care of everyone else and if that left me tired, frustrated, exhausted, overwhelmed: then that was just what it was. 
I eventually realized that I needed to take care of me. If that meant sitting in my car for an extra few minutes, laying in bed a little longer, or the shower then that’s what I did. Let me tell you, I did all those things. And I didn’t feel guilty for it. I needed it. 🤷‍♀️
One of the best things that I found that helped ME was working out. Making new friends who I could talk to about what I was dealing with because, hey they were going through to same stuff. They knew my struggle so they knew/know how to help me through it. 
You don’t have to do it alone. It’s hard, I know! I hate asking for help. But it is not a bad thing. Sometimes, we all need help. ❤️😁🙋‍♀️

  • Working mom REAL TALK:
Do you ever feel like you aren’t doing enough by your child? If you don’t want to read to the end...spoiler...YOU ARE!
I had a total anxiety filled rant today where I told my husband I was worried about our son falling behind. My amazing husband immediately reminded me of all the amazing things I have taught our son and how he is well on track if not ahead. Definitely let the “social media” comparison of other moms who loving stay home make me question what I am doing. I love my career and I know that it makes me a better mom but truly I think all of us working moms wondering if we are making the right decisions and choices. But I am here to tell you that we are all a hot mess (working or at home mom) and we are all just guessing and trying to do our best!

  • Just spent the entire day in our nation’s capital.
.
Planned on hitting up #winterlude .
Didn’t do our research to learn that it had moved across the pond after who knows how many years in the same location.
.
Anywhooo.
.
We took in downtown on foot anyway.
.
Did the #longestskatingrinkintheworld thing.
.
Did the #rideaucentre thing.
.
Did the stuff our guts at #themandarin thing.
.
Let me tell you...I had anxiety for most of the day.
.
Anxious with all the cars and the girls on the loose...not to mention the HUMANS.
.
A guy was peeing...on a glass store front window INSIDE.THE.MALL. at the entrance to the washrooms.  The washrooms we were rushing to get to so Jo could go number 1 after the hour long car ride to get there.🤦‍♀️
.
I prayed for him and moved on.
.
As sad as that was....it wasn’t the worst part.
.
The worst part was that I was overwhelmed with how crowded everywhere was.  I had a hard time relaxing and just enjoying myself.
.
It’s definitely something I’m going to reflect on.  Over wine 🍷 .  Tonight.

  • We waved goodbye to our fave guy at the airport this morning (he’s representing our doTERRA fam, The Happy Collective, at the doTERRA annual incentive trip. He’s on the plane to Vietnam). 👏👏
I couldn’t be happier that Tristan’s getting to have this experience, connecting with so many people I’ve had the pleasure of loving for 4 years now. 
And i couldn’t be happier for me, too.
This time around, I choose home 💗

  • This is what getting sleep looks like for me...
.
We did it. We finally decided to sleep train our almost 17 month old! 
The results? 
WHY DIDN’T WE DO THIS SOONER???
.
.
Honestly, It’s not that we didn’t make attempts, or have the intention of doing it… it just didn’t feel like the right move for us at the time. .
It wasn’t easy getting to the place I needed to be at to start sleep training, but it started to become impossible to function and I needed to make a change.
.
The night-waking to feed quickly went from being necessary to merely habitual, which made it easier for me to justify.
.
I’ve also continued to breastfeed him at points during the day, so I haven’t had to completely wean yet.
.
If you’re interested to hear how we went about cutting out night feeds and getting Theo to sleep better click the link in my bio for the full story on my blog 🔗 .
.
I’d also love to hear your sleep training stories! Please share them below or send me a DM! 💕
