My So-Called Mommy Life Nashville

Two weekends ago, my sisters friends and I surprised her with a trip to Nashville for her bachlorette.

“I want so much more than they’ve got planned”  When I turned 16 years old, the musical Beauty and The Beast was playing in Toronto. I remember begging my mom for tickets to go and see it. I had adored the movie that came out in 1991. When I woke up on the morning of [...]

Mom guilt. We all have it and it seems to start the second our babies are born. You know what it feels like. Second, third, and fourth guessing every decision you make as a parent.

Eleven years ago, after completing University, I decided to participate in a walk for Breast Cancer.
