On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old

On Watching Fuller House with My 3-Year-Old

So here’s the thing: Full House represents a more innocent time.

On New Moms … and Our New Bodies

I recently had the opportunity to write a guest blog post for Seraphine Maternity about anything pregnancy or mom-related. I chose to write about body image and, ultimately, acceptance, after having a baby. I was also lucky enough to reunite with my favorite photographer, Brenna Britton, who shot baby K at 3 weeks, and then […]

The best problem to have

The best problem to have

My kid cannot stop smiling at me. K has come a long way since I was finding my contacts in the refrigerator six weeks ago. We’re all sleeping better and my now 9-week-old bean has sprouted the cutest little personality. No one tells you just how tough the first weeks of having a newborn can […]
