Have you ever been in a relationship with someone and later realized that you’re the only one who considers the two of you actually being ‘in a relationship?’ I’ve learned that many people steer clearing of defining the relationship they have with someone and instead tag on words like ‘talking’ or ‘dating’ as in–there’s no commitment, but I don’t want you to talk to anyone else.

Being a parent is a full-time job that you get paid in poopy diapers and gum-filled smiles for–which are totally worth it, by the way. Although your baby means the world to you, that doesn’t change the fact that you might start to feel overwhelmed with being mommy after some time has passed. I’ve been a mother for a little over two months now and the pressure is really on. Harper needs more from me now than she did in her earliest stages and naturally, that need with grow with time. With that, I’m still learning to adjust to what […]
