4th Trimester Must Haves - from A Parenting Production

Having a baby is a big deal, and let’s face it ladies, women carry the brunt of the work during pregnancy, labor and – especially if breastfeeding – during baby’s first few weeks and months of life. While I am not really a fan of the push present concept – women have been doing this for ages and babies are an amazing gift of their own – I do think we deserve to feel good about ourselves and our bodies after such a major accomplishment.

Begin Again Movie

A few weeks ago, I saw a preview of a movie while I was waiting to sob through The Fault in Our Stars. Adam Levine? Um, yes please. Keira Knightley? I love her. The writer-director from Once?

June 26, 2014

Sometimes I have a lot to say and other times I find myself at a loss for words (you hush, it happens.) But I don’t always spew it all over this blog. Sometimes I share it over on BabyCenter.

They have this awesome thing called their Daily Deals. I get an email every day [...]
