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 [...]

34 week pregnancy update

We are getting so close and yet it still feels like it is so far away!  I have to say that the planner in me does not love not knowing when baby will arrive.  But I guess that just adds to the fun of pregnancy <-- I'm being slightly facetious here.  Regardless, the countdown is on! This [...]
