My baby is one month old today. Already! I can’t even believe it. She was wide awake all day with me, so naturally we cuddled all day. Anyways. Last night after I put her to bed, I spent a lot of time meditating and gathering my thoughts. I’m about to take another huge leap in my life, and even though I’m excited beyond what words can describe, I’m also afraid. It’s not even that I’m afraid of new things, or of change.

However, our dogs are family and no matter how much I love our house, what fun is it to live next to neighbors who can’t accept our family? So now we’ve got new goals for the short term future that I’m beyond excited about. Continue reading

Ten Things I Learned During My First Week As Mommy.

I’ve been MIA lately. But for a good reason! My little princess decided to make her arrival about two weeks early (two short days after my college graduation!). It’s been a busy week with adjusting, learning, cuddling and experiencing everything new. Since today marks the end of my first week as a mommy, I thought I’d call out the biggest things that I learned!

Thoughts on Graduating.

Free Spirit Babe // Thoughts on Graduating

Graduation is one week from tomorrow. I will officially receive my BA in Business and I can definitely tell you that my graduating self is so much different from my freshman self.

Let me elaborate. Continue reading
