Truth-telling Thursdays: The Social Anxiety Monster.

Until 3 years ago, this is what my beach life looked like. EMPTY. This isn’t a metaphor for anything. No connection to my infertility journey.This is my anxiety convincing me that I needed to be off the beach any time I went, before everyone else showed up – or else… I was born and raised […]

Tales of Parenthood: Becoming “Sports Mom”.

Oh, dear. What have I done? It was the only thing I kept repeating in my head as I raced around our house, trying to make sure we had anything we’d need before we left – because we weren’t coming back to the house if something was forgotten. Bug spray. Hat. Catcher’s glove. Towel to […]

In August, I started wearing a hybrid smartwatch on the regular. The most interesting part of it all is: I wanted a hybrid smartwatch because I wanted the notifications from my phone at my wrist when my phone wasn’t near, and to better, more comfortably track my day-to-day. I tried wearing my Garmin Forerunner 235 […]
