But it’s actually my boys who are directing me to the path of toy minimalism (if only they knew)!

It’s filled with so many happy memories, so many fun adventures, creativity, travel ..read more

© Kristina Paukshtite from Pexels via canva.com Motherhood is full of surprises. A baby comes when we least expect it. Or, a baby doesn’t come when we desire it most. Pregnancies that we prayed for (or didn’t) wreak havoc on our bodies and some babies don’t survive, leaving us with an unimaginable and unexplainable void as we navigate a life full of loss, grief, and what-could-have-beens. Our birth plan quickly falls to the wayside once we get into the terrifying and painful process of bringing a human into the world. The late nights and early mornings hit us harder — physically, emotionally ..read more
