We're having a....

Did you know I host a podcast called Little Things? Since October, I've published 16 episodes all about creativity, tech, and motherhood and how they fit together. This means I talk about

*copy writing and building a flexible career to create a lifestyle I want

*what it's like working from home with three kids; my schedule

*my favorite apps, kid's gear, and products for small space living

*my favorite recent purchases from Target and Costco

*Pop culture talk about new books, funny twitter feeds, and The Bachelor

*personal essays on motherhood that (I hope!) uplift and encourage other parents


Recently, my husband and I found out the gender of our fourth baby. The second I got back to the car, I turned on a voice recorder app and recorded my immediate thoughts. It's my most popular episode yet. Hope you enjoy!

P.S. I recommend using the PocketCast app to listen to podcasts. It's worth it! To find Little Things, open the app, search "Little Things" and hit subscribe. Or you can listen to Little Things from your browser here.


Merry Christmas!

I just had to get on and put up a little post to say Thank You for your support of my new Little Things podcast. You guys are the best! It's been a fun experiment to teach myself something new. I admit I'd be happy making it, even if no one listened, but I'm overjoyed that friends actually are. So Thank YOU!

Hope you all have a very merry Christmas and wonderful New Year. xo

Today is my birthday

Today is my birthday. It's not what I expected it to be. It's gray and drizzly and my head feels like a fog has landed and will never lift. I know it will, but today it feels like it won't. I know it's childish to really look forward to your birthday, but I can't help myself. I always do. It's never too different from any other day but something feels special all day long. But it's also lonely. Why are birthdays lonely? It puts me in the head too much. Reflecting on the last twelve months, trying to determine whether they've been of much worth. What even happened last year?!

Is it just getting older, or do birthdays feel weird to you too? Do you get too pensive on your special day too?
