Sugar Trap

I’m not sure if most moms can relate, but when feeding a toddler, sometimes convenience wins out over nutrition. At home, I make all of my daughter’s meals so I am able to control her sugar intake. But when we're out and about that’s another story.

Delayed Independence

When I was a new college grad, diploma in hand, I never considered moving back home was an option. I assumed I'd get a high-paying entry level job, get my own place and never sleep in my childhood bedroom again.

Pack Light

I have two days left until my big cross-country flight with a toddler. I’ve created the lofty goal for myself to pack everything we need in one carry-on suitcase. Maybe I’m deluding myself, but I haven’t checked a bag in over three years and I’d like to keep my streak going! I’ve created my strategy to make sure everything fits and I’d like to share a few helpful tips if you’re a mom who wants to pack light with a toddler.

Running and Leadership

If you asked me when I was a kid if I liked to run I would have said no way! To make a long story short, I have since fallen in love with running. This past May, I was blessed to finish the Chase Corporate Challenge in 22:15, a personal record. However, I did not run the race to achieve a personal best, I ran it in memory of my grandpa.
