I just made a fresh batch of this chex mix for the girls and decided to toss in some pink and red to give it all the Valentine’s Day feels. It’s one of Mila’s favourite treats, and I think the aroma of caramel that comes from it baking is one of those smells that will create nostalgia for the girls as they get older; it’s comforting, ‘home-y’ and delicious.
WOW…First off, where did 2019 go?! Every year seems to fly by faster than the last and self reflecting always reminds me to try and live as presently as possible because time is so fleeting. This year was FULL of changes for our family and also me personally. We bought and flipped a house, I travelled more for work than I have ever before, we lost my Nana and Nick’s Grandmother, too. Nat and I started our podcast (which now feels like we’ve been doing forever), Brielle and Mila have grown and evolved in so many ways – their personalities shining more brightly than ever.
Let’s be honest, most of us aren’t getting the eight hours of sleep our doctors tells us to get each night. And even when we ARE getting eight hours…it may not be restful. As a society, we focus a lot of our attention as it relates to health on diet and exercise, but we often forget to count sleep as one of the most important aspects of our overall wellness.
At Here for Her, we have created a space where women can learn from incredible experts in all areas of life (think: CEO boss babes who own multi-million dollar companies, beauty and wellness experts, self development gurus, celebrity fitness instructors, and more). It will also be a place where we get real… no topic is off limits; because discussing taboo topics is just so much more interesting and fun, right?!
I really do believe that mom guilt comes in massive waves. Some days, you feel like you’ve got this whole mom thing together. The kids are playing happily, you had a few extra minutes to clean the kitchen, and you even had time to prep dinner before three p.m (that in itself is a huge accomplishment, right)?? But, the next day all of those feelings of accomplishment quickly vanish. The kids have thrown five tantrums before nine a.m., you have a meeting you’re already running late to, and you’ve lost your patience more times than you’d like to admit.
