Before there were children in my life, there was my first baby — my beloved dog, Ben. Ben was a yellow lab rescue dog from Tennessee my husband and I adopted shortly after we were engaged. Ben was a stray who had spent time in a kill shelter, and there was something about him that […]
Valentine’s Day is almost here, which means couples will have to decide if they will fall into the “stay in” or the “go out” date night category. While I always welcome nights out and find that they are a much-needed part of marriage, I completely understand why many parents pass on going out for Valentine’s […]
As a mom of two kids under the age of 4, the last few years of my life have revolved around witnessing an endless flood of firsts. First smiles, first steps, first words. As a first-time mom, I was admittedly preoccupied with milestones and the inevitable comparisons. Was she sitting up on her own yet? […]
