We Made It One Year With Twins!

In honor of surviving the first year with twins, I have written a post for my fellow twin mamas out there in the throes of the journey. I have never been happier than I am today, and celebrating the twins first birthday is truly the most magical of milestones. So without further ado….One Year Later….What…

To The Mom Who Can’t Cherish The Moment

To all the moms in the thick of it – the pain and sickness of pregnancy, the downright torture of sleep deprivation, the overwhelming worry that consumes you the minute that they put that tiny new life in your arms… you do NOT have to cherish this moment. You don’t have to find a way…

Happy Halloween

We have most certainly been in the holiday spirit around here lately with fall finally arriving and it suffices to say that we have nested into all things pumpkin spice and everything nice. I absolutely love fall, and I have recently been reinspired to get behind the camera and start shooting again. I am excited about taking…

When Your Heart Has Had Enough

This has been a devastating month for empath’s, and I for one am completely and utterly exhausted. I will never forget the first time I really got a taste of empathetic burnout when Columbine took place. I was a junior in high school at the time and the images and sounds from the shootings ruminated…

Social Reform, Trauma, and Black Lives Matter.

I like to think that human belief systems are a reflection of both who/what you love and who/what has caused you pain. Opinions are subjective, and as much I believe that communication and connection are the necessary foundations for social change, I also believe that there are certainly undeniable roadblocks to changing others belief systems…

We Survived – A Love Story 

Today is my wedding anniversary…. and as I look back at the photos of the younger and skinnier versions of my husband and I kissing ever so romantically in front of some strange pond on our wedding day, I cant help but point my finger at them and laugh. What suckers. Those sappy and naive…

Do Opposites Attract?

When you are married to your opposite, you often find yourself wishing they could just be more like you. Why can’t they share in your love of shabby chic interior design, worship you in your cat onesie, and understand that your lack of organization stems from your creative free spirit? Christina Ceranna explores the topic of marriage between opposites, and why the challenge of meeting in the middle just may be worth it.

The Missing Key

The moment they placed my twin baby girls into my arms after birthing them was truly one the greatest of highs life has to offer. I remember looking down at their crinkly faces as they started to latch onto me and something inside of me aching….in that moment it was her face that flashed inside of my mind   – Habi’s birth mother – and I saw the two of them together just like this…. in that moment I felt such sadness for what was lost for him. I got it in a way I could never have before. I could truly understand for the very first time, and it is heartbreaking let me tell you.

My Favorite Things – Mom Edition

All The Gear Things  1. Table For Two  – The Table for Two is an absolute must have for twins. It allows you to bottle feed and spoon feed two babies at once, the twins napped in it all the time, and it’s transportable to grandma’s house. It’s one of the best places for me to…

The Good, The Bad, and the Downright Ugly in Parenting

I’ve done a great deal of thinking recently about why I have always had this need to share my journey through blogging – and why I so often choose to talk about the tough stuff and the heavy stuff instead of the light and pretty stuff – and I think it’s because it is the…

Part Four: The Atom Bomb On Marriage That Is Kids

I am just going to say it having babies is an absolute assault onto marriage. Being that I am a psychological information junkie, I already knew that the drop in happiness quotient from when a couple is pregnant with their first child to when the baby is less than two years old is the largest…

Part Three: Not Everyone Will Get It

As I have admitted before, I was truly the worst kind of judgmental mom before I had babies. I don’t think you can truly understand the toll sleep denervation, recovering from a c section, and managing someone’s entire life takes on your personal self until you have a baby for the first time. In that…
