I’m sure you’ve heard the huge hype of the Netflix Original Movie, Bird Box.  I’m not normally one of the ones to jump on the bandwagon of watching shows just because everyone else has seen it.  But, of course, I got sucked into it when my husband started watching it one Friday night.  You may […]

Making Enemies while Finding Myself

When Brett and I started talking about parenting, I thought I knew exactly who I was going to be.  I am a huge planner, as many of you know, so I read all the baby books, Googled all the symptoms, and prepared in whatever way I thought possible. My vision of being a parent was […]
