Guys, I can not believe it…I’m sitting in my home in Miami writing this post. Seriously, where did the time go? My daughter, Mia, will be starting school on Monday!! What? When did my baby grow up and when did her princess costumes get replaced by a school uniform? I was always “warned” by seasoned moms that the time would fly…but when you’re in the middle of long nights, long days, and little time to yourself, it truly feels like time is dragging by. And then one day, everything seems to fall into place, the kids actually feed themselves, dressing…

This post is sponsored by Carter’s; however all thoughts and opinions are my own. Babies change everything. I know, I know, this is not a news flash, just a friendly reminder.

Either decision would have been alright and Mia would…

I’d be lying if I said I don’t miss my high heels. I do. I miss them very much. Sometimes I create scenarios in my head and pretend that I’ll be going somewhere that requires me to be in heels…so I’ll get dressed for my everyday errands/life and put on some heels. It doesn’t last very long, I almost always change back to my ballet flats after an hour or so, but that hour of high heel wearing recharges me and gets me, well, a little high. Pun intended. Mom life is basically being able to be on the go,…

My toddler, Mia, is acting exactly how I feel. Overjoyed. What a year this has been. For some it was good, for some it was bad, and for some it was just another year. For us, as a family, it started out pretty rocky with my body still recovering from the preeclampsia I suffered postpartum, but around May, things started to turn around. I got a clean bill of health, was able to start working out again (definitely helped my mood), and I finally felt like I could put that whole scary chapter behind. And I did. We left for…
