Wine Wednesdays!

How are you coping during Covid? Above all, my relationships are suffering and consequently my mental health. The hubs and I are surprisingly doing great. I never imagined I could be cooped up with one person for so long, and we could still enjoy each other’s company at the end of the night. I won’tContinue reading “Wine Wednesdays!”

An Apocalyptic Week

I am from a small town that the nation had never really heard of. I had never seen our name in major headlines. I had never heard of a president tweeting about us. But last week we were hit with a mass shooting and a wildfire that have devastated our little city. I have livedContinue reading “An Apocalyptic Week”

ASK JACQUE: Transitioning to Dad, More Kids, and Morning Sickness

When Mama Feels Sick

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have not been feeling well, and I find it’s incredibly difficult to shake an illness as a mom. We are already severely sleep deprived, under nourished, and lacking in adequate time for self-care. Once infected, we struggle to fight the additional internal battle.  I feel like I’ve beenContinue reading “When Mama Feels Sick”

It’s OK to be a Mess

Yesterday was a pretty rough day. Sleep deprivation, a messy house, and toddler tantrums got the best of me.
