WAHM: Everything You Need to Know About Becoming A Work-From-Home-Parent

Some of you already know this – but I am a full time work from home mom. I do quite a bit of freelance writing and marketing consulting – and my baby boy gets to actually be home with me two days a week. It’s like the best of both worlds – and I love it.For many reasons, a daily office environment just isn’t for me. I’m really efficient – and when you’re graded on billable hours, like many agencies are, this actually hurts my performance reports. I don’t do office politics – I believe that…See More

Fit Mama: Today I Took the Pluge – I Bought a Fancy Heart Rate Monitor

This past week has been an emotional roller coaster, for a lot of reasons. When my life is emotional, I like to do a lot of cardio. I don’t know why – it just works out that way.When I feel like doing more of a particular exercise – circuits vs. lifting vs. cardio – I go with it. I figure that if my body feels like it’s not getting enough of a particular…See More

Beauty Video: The Daily Face

For Christmas, my parents got us a GoPro camera. I’ve been meaning to use it a million times since then, but it took me a while to get all of the needed accessories and figure out how to actually use it. I’m guessing that the intent was for us to use it with the little guy. But for my first “real” video, I’m giving all of you mommies something a little different: a quick makeup tutorial. I get lots of messages from ya’ll saying you don’t have time for make up or that you don’t know how to wear…See More

Weird Homeschoolers

When folks see me out and about, with the five Minions in tow, they aren’t horribly surprised to discover I’m also ‘one of those weird homeschool people’.I’ve been known to correct them. Yeah, I’m weird, but that existed long before our decision to homeschool.I’d started considering homeschooling when my son, now nine, was a toddler. I knew, that unless aliens came down and fried his brain, he was the kind of kid teachers get medicated over.Or, I’d be getting letters home about medicating…See More

Baby loss, three months later.

This weekend marked three months since we lost our sweet baby girl. Three months that flew by in an instant, yet left me feeling about thirty years older. It’s like that old saying – the days pass slowly but the weeks go by so quickly.Knowing that a week from Tuesday, she was supposed to be born. That’s when her c-section was scheduled for, you know. Tuesday August 19 at 9:30 AM. It’s the day that’s staring me in the face right now. Part of me feels like getting over that hump is like the key…See More

As you probably already guessed (based on the title of this post) – we’re pregnant!

Thrilled, ecstatic, amazed, thankful, blessed…words can’t even describe.

And also: terrified.

I’m freaking myself out while feeling like I’m walking on air. It’s very weird, my friends.

The Daily Face: Quick Mommy Skin Care for Anti-Aging

Posted on September 1, 2014 at 9:32pm 0 Comments

I was having a conversation the other day with my friend Tiffani about how we used to think – pre-kids – that we were soooo busy. And then we had children. And we can’t remember what we actually spent our time doing back in the “busy” days.

This isn’t a dig at people who don’t have kids. It’s just the truth about reality – it’s impossible to understand how constantly busy you can actually be until you have kids. You parents know what I’m talking about. Having kids magnifies everything…

Life After Child Loss: Heidi’s Story

Posted on September 1, 2014 at 10:49am 0 Comments

My daughter Avery would have turned six this past July. In just a few days she’d be starting first grade. I would no doubt be frantically running around, completely occupied with last minute school shopping for frilly dresses and Queen Elsa lunchboxes and pretty pink bows to clip in her long brown hair.

But Avery was stillborn three weeks before her due date. My daughter’s ashes sit in an urn in my bedroom, a little silver container from Hobby Lobby that gets a kiss every morning and…

So you’ve heard about this thing called an “editorial calendar.” But if you don’t work in marketing, you might not know what the heck I’m talking about. And no matter what field you work in, figuring out how to create an editorial calendar that you’ll actually use can be a challenge. So what gives?

Why they work

Editorial calendars are one of my favorite ways to keep my work organized, especially as it pertains to my blog. It’s a place where I can keep…
