Stressed, Depressed, and “Successful”

The recent suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain have sparked a trend of people posting about their own experience with mental illness and suicide. Some have shared about friends and family who they have lost, and others have shared their own struggles that led to an attempted suicide. I…

Infused with Hope

I have been absolutely floored by the kind words I’ve received from my blog readers and Instagram viewers. So much in fact, that I’ve been inspired to reach out to other bloggers whose work resonates with me. I’ve emailed a couple of mom bloggers, and although they did not respond,…

A Night to Myself

I had this really weird experience last night where I encouraged Yev to go see a movie for his own self-care, but I ended up benefiting from some alone time too. I was initially a little concerned about Yev being gone for the nighttime routine. I can obviously do it…

Paperback is Back for Good

When’s the last time you picked up a book? Not a digital rendering, but a real book with coarse pages and a musty smell. I’ve recently begun reading tangible books again, and I feel like I found something I didn’t know was lost. I didn’t know I missed the sound…

Does Alone Always Mean Lonely?

Today I decided to attend our monthly art night solo. Everyone else was busy, but I still really wanted to go. This is pretty out of character for me because I never go anywhere alone. I am not one of those people who eat at restaurants or attend movies as…

Terrible Tuesday

Boy am I glad yesterday is over, and I pray today is better! I totally got my butt kicked yesterday. The girls weren’t any different than they usually are, but I just could not cope. I usually don’t feel the pressure of three-under-three, but my monthly hormones made sure to…

$5 Fridays

What do you think of when you hear $5 Friday? Some of you are thinking $5 pizzas, $5 tequila shots, $5 appetizers, $5 glasses of wine. Anything and everything to do with Happy Hour right?? Well for a mom of three under three, $5 Friday means $5 art night! That’s…

Girl’s Day, Woot! Woot!

You might be asking yourself, what chocolatey goodness resides within that ramekin? The answer is L’ultime fondant chocolat, or in English, it’s basically a gluten-free chocolate soufflé. These were amazing. I ate all of mine and half of my mom’s, while she wasn’t looking. Being gluten-free can sometimes be really difficult,…

Becoming a Writer

I’ve had a few people ask me how I got into blogging, and the short answer is Dublin circa 2007. I spent my Junior Year abroad in Ireland, and it became the most influential year of my life. It reformed my character and created my adult identity. The Jacque who…
