A Brief Update

Well, I'm a mom! My kid is about to turn four months old and it has been all the things. Everyone is healthy and (mostly) happy. Someday, when I have some space, I'll write a huge, huge post about giving birth and everything that came after. Be well, friends.

It’s True. Second Trimester is the Golden Hour.

I want to take a minute here and say a couple of things: first, this pregnancy was super wanted and planned for. And I know that I am SO lucky to be experiencing it. There are a few folks close to me who have struggled with infertility and it's heartbreaking. I don't really talk about … Continue reading It’s True. Second Trimester is the Golden Hour.

Some big news!

Hello friends! It's been a while, I know. And that's because I've been working on a few projects that have taken up a bunch of time. Project 1: We're moving to Raleigh in a couple of weeks!

Hi, friends.

I'm so sorry that it's been so long since I've written anything. It has been a long, difficult, gut-wrenching year, for the obvious reasons and for some personal ones.

CBD and me

Let me just start by saying that I get that there's not a ton of research out there on CBD, and that products aren't regulated. I get that I'm taking a risk if I use it. And I promise that I won't use it when there's eventually a little one growing in my belly. Let's … Continue reading CBD and me

Data mining, anxiety-style

As some of you know, I've been tracking some personal data for a few years now. I do this because it helps me detect patterns with anxiety and potential triggers and also keep on top of other symptoms like headaches.

Expectations of an Anxious Bride

Well, friends, I'm a married lady now and it's pretty awesome.
