I don't share often about the reality of being a military family. It's something we sort of keep to ourselves, and really just continually go through the motions. But there's a lot of us; and I want to take some time to share the real life look of what it's like to be a military... Continue Reading →
I have a confession…
This post, to me, is my turning point. Where I continually lay out my path, my learnings, my moments and my mess ups. Authenticity has always, and will always, be at the forefront of my being. Not only how I carry myself but in the way I write and how I'm perceived online. I haven't... Continue Reading →
get fit or die trying
About a week ago I asked the Instagram world for any tips, tricks or support on prioritizing my health and wellness, and I was blown away by the response and really valid answers.

Since moving to Ottawa I have said countless times that it's been a challenge meeting people, connecting, getting our flow - but what I've realized is that I haven't... Continue Reading →
Sometimes I think back on years in high school and university and think, holy shit, I could've been a better human. Elementary school doesn't count- we're not great humans then. I mean, I bet some of you were. But I feel like that's the time you're supposed to get in trouble, figure yourself out, do... Continue Reading →

My wild one is now ONE. A whole year has passed, and I think I'm supposed to say, "It went by so quickly."

Have baby, will travel.
As most of you know I travel a LOT with Lincoln in tow. Zack and I both travel constantly for work and we just make each week work. One week never looks the same as the week previous and we rely so much on the support of our families for our crazy schedule. The upside... Continue Reading →
one and done.
I have always been a believer that we would have one baby (naturally). I was open to possibly adopting or becoming a foster parent once our child was older. But all of a sudden I've had these days where I text my husband and say "Yeah this child thing is cool, let's have another." Or... Continue Reading →
