Clara’s Birth Story

Clara Ruth's Birth Story

I want to first acknowledge what a gift it is to write this story. It’s not lost on me how many Mamas and Mamas-to-be are yearning to write their story that has yet to happen. I’m immensely grateful I’ve been able to experience two births. I don’t think they could be any more different from […]

Here’s my tried and true hospital bag essentials for baby #2 after figuring out what we didn’t need and really did the first time around!

KISS in the Kitchen gets a Makeover!

Hi friend! I’ve been keeping a little secret. Partially because I’ve been too bogged down to share some of the behind the scenes progress and partially because I was just downright a little fearful to announce my NEW WEBSITE and then have it take a lot longer than anticipated (which was 100% the case).

This special series on the Fruits of the Spirit is continuing on with a focus on peace and patience! I’ll be quick to admit that patience is not my strong suit, and that’s probably become more obvious since becoming a mama. My peaceful moments have also become fewer and farther between, but I’m learning to […]
