Be your own cheerleader…

After almost two weeks back at work under my belt, I found myself feeling eager to share some thoughts. It feels SO good to be back at work. Sometimes I feel guilty saying that because I really cherished and enjoyed every second I had home when I was laid off from my previous position. I…

Pumping Ain’t Easy

I was chatting with one of my very best friends this morning, bright and early as she is returning back to work soon from maternity leave.  She’s a truly amazing mama, it has been an honor watching her become a mama.  I knew it was a job she would succeed in and was born to…

My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Getting Laid Off…

I’ve thought long and hard about addressing this topic on my blog, mostly because it’s a highly personal thing, but also it’s something that a lot of people can relate to, so here it goes. Back in September we got the dreadful email that many pharmaceutical reps have received. We found out there would be…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Happy International Women’s Day…Feel GOOD Friday!

What a great day to be a woman! I love the idea of having an international women’s day. After all, none of us would be here if it weren’t for a strong woman that carried us in her belly for 40 weeks! I still get amazed by reading that number. 40 weeks is a long…

These are a few of my favorite things…

My blog has definitely taken a pregnancy turn…sorry if it’s boring you, it has pretty much taken over my body and life–so I think it’s safe to say I think about it often.  Anyways, my pregnancy has certainly been an interesting time for me. I’ve had ups and downs and wide ranges of emotions.  It…

Staying positive…

Today marks 8 years since my brother left this world. I would love to say it has become easier, but it hasn’t. I still think of him every single day and wonder how life would be different if he were still around. I thought getting married and not having him there would be one of…

Happy 2017 💕

It’s so hard to believe it’s already 2017. Where has the time gone?! As crazy as it is, I’m happy that it’s here. There is one main reason I can’t wait for 2017–and that reason is that in a few short months our little lady will make her big arrival.  Being pregnant has been a…

This election…yes I’m going there..

This election has made such a strange impact on my life.  It has made me reflect on my core beliefs and identify who I am and what is truly important to me as a person and more importantly–what characteristics I believe a leader of this country should possess.  I’m not going to say who I…
