I was so grateful to be able to try out the facial services offered by Kayla Hernandez at Luxury Skin Scottsdale. With her 13 […]
I look around the room with stinging eyes, the hot tears threatening to spill over at any second making the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree blur like a blizzard before my eyes. The smell of a winter candle fills my nostrils – the clove, the cinnamon, the pine. Christmas music dances through the room […]

With the holidays quickly upon us, we brace ourselves for the time honored tradition of gifting the ones we love and appreciate. For some, this means shoving all presents into gift bags. But for others, it can be a carefully planned, heartfelt process with color-coordinated and on-trend sentiment. This year, I was able to attend […]

Sometimes being a mom means listening to your gut and speaking up when your child’s health seems amiss. For us, this wasn’t normal acid reflux, it was something more dangerous: Pyloric Stenosis. My first son Declan suffered from textbook GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease, or acid reflux). He would spit up a mouthful of milk every […]
Before kids, I slept in as late as I wanted, on Egyptian Cotton sheets with the highest thread count, waking up to the peaceful sounds of nothingness. I could book a massage, then grab lunch on an outdoor patio. Remember those days, girls? Running to the grocery store was a breeze. It was just Me, […]

Looking for a fun night out with friends? Board and Brush Scottsdale hosted our most recent Moms’ Night Out and we had such a wonderful time.
It’s that time of year where our calendar has just been filled up! Between fall parties and holiday get togethers, our little family IS BOOKED until the New Year- for reals! Some of these gatherings are adult only (yay partayyyy!) BUT, I ran into a problem…..babysitting. Usually we recruit a grandma, but they are just […]
“What do you want to do when you grow up?” What a question. A question everyone asks when we are young. But can I even answer that? Call me selfish, but I want it all. I want to be a loving wife. I want to be a caring Mom. I want to use my mind. […]
Thanksgiving is just a few days away, and while I love having friends and family over and cooking (and outsourcing) a big meal, it is a lot of work. Because my kids don’t seem to care that I am spending a good portion of the day prepping for the Thanksgiving meal, I have come up […]
Every time Brangelina jetsetted across the globe, they’d return with a bigger brood of little stars. While celebs drawing attention to adoption isn’t all bad, the ease and glamour doesn’t exactly depict how it goes down in real-life. Our son Graham, with his killer baby blues, made me a mom in 2012 at two minutes […]
