9 Magical Moments From Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2017 #DisneySMMC

The hardest thing about recapping last week’s adventures is narrowing down photos and putting video (still to come) together for y’all! It was hard to narrow down the many, many magical moments but I wanted to try and do that in this post. My second year at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration (Land and Sea) was absolutely amazing! It was filled with all sorts of pixie dust magic. I will be doing separate posts that highlight more of the conference-specific details…

Making Your Mom-cation a Success This Weekend

Mom-cation, mom getaway

We’ve previously discussed family weekend getaways here on the blog. However, today it’s all about you mom. Yes – that’s right, you’re well deserving of a mom-cation.

So this post is just as much for me as it is for you. Here are 3…

Every woman’s experience and subsequent grieving and recovery journey are unique to them. It can be long, short,…

Oh baby! – Expecting the Unexpected in Childbirth

Expect the unexpected childbirth, baby

It was my third child, I knew how this was going to go… I’d get the epidural and BOOM, Baby No. 3! Easy, peasy. Yea, not so much… This is a short story in how to expect the unexpected, in hopes that my story will speak to you, so you can learn from my silly assumption that “I had this,” when God, He had other plans.

Knowing Black History

It’s Black History Month, or as many are redefining it, Black History Year. Yes, we’re black every day of the year, lol. And taking the time to observe and educating our children, so that they can be proud of the colour of their skin, is worth doing every month of the year. Don’t let society dictate what and when you learn about your past. Empower yourself by taking it into your own hands. Just ordered my #BlackHistoryYear @luvvie shirt from @teesinthetrap!…
