After my 5K in August (that I never mentioned), I decided to up the ante. Time for a 10K! I met my goal for the August 5K by seconds – done in under 30 minutes – and I needed something new to work towards. Because … running gets to you like that. I downloaded the Nike Run Club […]

As much as I love sharing about pregnancy and birth, I think I most love finding camaraderie in the postpartum phase of motherhood.  Pregnancy is a little less than a year, birth, in the best circumstances, is less than a day, but postpartum?

My big kids are away at camp this week. I cannot deal. How are they old enough to leave for so long? Granted, it’s just day camp and they’re with their aunt in the evenings. But still, I’m a ball of anxious energy waiting to get them back in my arms! Also, that big guy […]
