Postpartum Flare Up of Chronic Lyme Disease

A look at my postpartum flare up of chronic Lyme disease and a couple of "new" diagnoses. It has been a wild last few months.  Learning how to be a mom is hard.  Learning how to be a mom when you do not feel well is even more difficult. If you have been around for [...]

My Supplement Routine in a Picture a Day #ad #MyWeekSupplemented

Thank you Council for Responsible Nutrition for sponsoring this post. This is #MyWeekSupplemented. It is no secret that I have been on a whirlwind of a ride with my health over the past six years or so.  While I recently received a chronic Lyme diagnosis, it took a whole lot of time, doctors, diet changes, [...]

Reframing My To Do List in this Season of Life #healthyliving #healthy

Does anyone else feel like they blinked and suddenly it was December?  No?  Just me?  Yeah right.  I know I am not the only one who has had a completely nutso year.  With pregnancy, house projects, HAVING A BABY, working, blogging, and just trying to stay afloat while also getting a few hours of shut-eye, my [...]

My Journey to a Diagnosis of Chronic Lyme Disease #healing #chronicLyme #chronicillness #LymeDisease

As I sit down to write this post, I am realizing it has been ages since I have given one of these updates (it looks like June of 2016, to be exact).  In all honesty, when dealing with chronic health issues that you cannot seem to get a diagnosis for, you eventually just try to push [...]

Breastfeeding is hard, especially as a new mother. Society makes breastfeeding out to be beautiful and natural, but that is not always the case!

While this is absolutely a food blog and not a baby and breastfeeding blog, I feel like I would be doing a huge disservice to women everywhere if I did not write this post.  I hope to use this platform to reach as many people as possible about this topic because I feel it is [...]

Our Sweet Baby Boy's Birth Story

This is a continuation of our sweet baby boy's birth story.  Start here if you missed Part 1. The period between 7:00 p.m. and midnight is when I truly began to experience what Pitocin-induced contractions are like.  They come fast, hard, and with little breaks in between.  At one point I was timing them as [...]

Our Sweet Baby Boy's Birth Story

This is the story of our sweet baby BOY's birth.  I have split it into two parts for the sake of not bombarding you with a lengthy post.  Jeremy and I have decided together to not share pictures with his face or share his name to protect his privacy.  From here on out, I'll be [...]

40 Week Pregnancy Update

All of my previous pregnancy update posts covered four-week time spans.  But now that things are getting down to the wire (hello, 40 weeks), I figured I had better pop back in for one last update. I'm not going to lie, I sort of hoped I wouldn't get to this post.  But here we are [...]
