The Price of Your Motherhood

What were you like before you had a child or started trying to get pregnant? I can distinctly remember being fun, flirty, and outgoing. I didn’t know what anxiety was like. My mom had told me she had struggled with anxiety some, and I…

Must Haves for Baby

I’d like to think I kind of knew what someone needed for a baby once you welcome them into the world. Now that I’ve had two, I have a grasp on what’s necessary and what you an do without for at least…

Why Can’t My Mustache Fall Out?

The postpartum shed has started. Y’all… this is the worst part of “recovery” for me. It happened at the exact same time with Hallen too. So, I’m hoping it’ll stop at 6 months as well. I feel like my hairline recedes five…

Hazel’s Nursery

I’ve wanted to share Hazel’s nursery with you guys for a while now, but I just don’t quite feel like it’s finished yet! The reality is, though, that I’ll probably be putting those finishing touches on it later this year…

Spit Up With a Side of Guilt

Y’all..this week I leave to go on my first ever “momcation.” I never left Hallen for an extended period of time when she was a baby, because I just couldn’t leave her side, and well…she needed me! I felt guilty leaving…

What Makes You Smile?

 Life is so hectic these days. Kids are no joke with how busy they make you! I definitely understand why people have always said “kids keep you young.” You’re constantly on your toes (literally and figuratively), and there are no two days alike…

Comfort + Practicality with Bravado

What’s the first thing you do once you get home from being out for a while? Whether that be going to work or just hanging out with friends…Mine has always been to take off my bra, and put some comfortable clothes on. Even…

Why Beautycounter?

Why Beautycounter?Why did I start selling something? I didn’t have to. It’s not like I applied for a job, and sent in my resume. Why in the world would anyone join a direct sales company? It’s scammy. It’s fake. It…

Must Haves for Baby

I’d like to think I kind of knew what someone needed for a baby once you welcome them into the world. Now that I’ve had two, I have a grasp on what’s necessary and what you an do without for at least the first 6 months.  The first thing is a complete nursery. no need to have it completed! Even though, I HAD to have both nurseries completed before the girls came home. It’s just a fun part of nesting and preparing yourself for this new little human being that’ll be taking up space in…

Margaux and Max

margaux-and-max

All of us mamas are on the look for that perfect bag. I know it, because I’ve always been on the look! And I feel like I need different bags for different activities. I’ve been known to bring four bags. Those aren’t my favorite days. I’m already carrying 2 kids, but when you add 4 bags, insanity happens! But when I started out, it just made sense in my head for organization purposes. I bet you’ve been there too ha!I’ve found an amazing bag from Margaux and May for those days when I…

Why Beautycounter?

Why Beautycounter?Why did I start selling something? I didn’t have to. It’s not like I applied for a job, and sent in my resume. Why in the world would anyone join a direct sales company? It’s scammy. It’s fake. It feels awkward. People are going to think that every time I talk to them, I’m going to ask them to buy something.Don’t tell me you haven’t had these thoughts in your head when you see your friends join a direct sales company. You know you try to skirt around certain situations…

I’m still in heavy decorating mode here at the Williams’ household. We’re coming up on our year anniversary, and I wish I could say that we just redecorated everything within the first 6 months, but do you know how expensive decorating is?! Especially coming from a little townhouse in Baltimore to a much larger home in South Carolina. It takes a lot more furniture, curtains, and art to hang on the walls. I love creating fun spaces, though. And I love having fun pieces in those rooms so that it’s more than just a picture from the…

hearing-the-beat-with-sudio-sweden

We’re a music house. We’re always telling Alexa to play us something. Usually it’s Trolls, Frozen, or Moana, but sometimes Kevin and I get a say in what we get to put on for our “dance parties” with Hallen!I don’t have a huge music database stored in my head or on my computer, but let’s face it, music can control our mood, and it’s nice to turn on our favorite song to listen to when the moment is right. When I found Sudio Sweden headphones, I fell in love. I had looked for…

raising-a-village-with-kinbe

I recently had an amazing opportunity to partner with Kinbe to help spread the word of their great cause. Children have always had and always will have a soft spot in my heart. Maybe it’s because I’ve always known I was created to be a mother, or because we had trouble conceiving, or because we had a miscarriage…probably a little bit of all of that.I wish I could take in all the children that don’t have a home or have never experienced a loving mother or father. And I know a lot of us feel…

keepsake-animal-stitched-by-natalie

There are so many memories from when our precious babes are so tiny. I always wished I could bottle up those first few weeks. Everything was a learning experience. It’s pure exhaustion, and yet so tender and beautiful all at the same time. Growing  the tiniest love and then giving birth to it just takes living to a whole new level.  No matter how tired you are once that little baby comes home, those newborn days fly by even if in the moment it seems as if they’re standing still. Before you know it, they’re walking and…

What Makes You Smile?

 Life is so hectic these days. Kids are no joke with how busy they make you! I definitely understand why people have always said “kids keep you young.” You’re constantly on your toes (literally and figuratively), and there are no two days alike.  If you’ve never been around toddlers, and think they’re just all goo, dirt, and button pushers, you’re wrong! They’re also incredibly hilarious! I started whitening my teeth with Smile Brilliant last month, and every time I pop my trays in to whiten my teeth, Hallen says, ” I like yo teefies. They…
