Motherhood opens a whole new horizon of challenges when it comes to mealtime. We can all remember the quiet moments of preparing meals prior to little ones running around the kitchen. But one does not simply prepare a meal...
A couple months ago I read a mom blog post that I found on the internet. The author made the mistake of saying something along the line of moms who work “get a break” at the office because they...
I’m a big believer in the idea that life is meant to be experienced, not merely survived. But… if I’m completely honest, right now, I’m in full survival mode. As a happily married woman in her mid-30s, who is...
It’s 11 p.m. and I’m sitting in bed with my laptop and Tina Fey keeping me company. Writing for Jacksonville Mom has been such a special and cherished outlet, but right now I’m stressed. Not because I waited until...
