Grabbing some popcorn, snuggling up under a blanket, and letting the film roll is one of my favorite parts of summer. This year, the Albuquerque area has some fun movie-going options for cheap--and some even free. So grab the...
There's nothing like a good throw-back like a drive-in movie. There was not much that was great about 2020, but the come-back of the drive-in movie theatre is one of them. Take a look at what's showing this summer. But...
My second baby latched on for an hour right after birth. I thought he was going to do so great at breastfeeding. Fast forward a few hours to the all too familiar pain coming in. And then the cracks in...
Here is my recipe for the Best Blueberry Muffins (in the world). Also, check out some variations if you are looking for gluten-free, dairy-free, or whole grain! The Original Recipe This version of the blueberry muffins is definitely the lightest and...

Most days from my pre-mom working days blur together, but there's one conversation I remember well. It was with a coworker talking about how lonely her maternity leave was and how isolating new motherhood could be. She was happy...
See part 1 of this story here. Developing a tumor in my spine threw a monkey wrench into my plans. Many of the things I had loved to do as a mom had gotten harder or impossible, at least for...
We each entered motherhood with ideas of what kind of mom we wanted to be. Did you dream of cooking wholesome, organic food for your children? Did you plan to always clean up at the end of the day?...
