0 comments

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a year since I’ve been partnered with the CHPA (Consumer Healthcare Products Association) and their #KnowYourOTCs campaign. One of the main reasons that I found this opportunity so interesting was that almost every single topic has either happened to me (er, the kids) in the past or we’ve

EDITOR’S NOTE: I am partnering with Minute Maid for a series of stories to help parents realize they’re #doingood. All opinions are my own. There’s no perfect book written about how to be a parent. Sure, there are a few decent reads out there, heck I even wrote one myself (less self-help and more I

Like most families, we look forward to the warm weather, swimming at the pool and maybe even a family vacation by the lake. Collecting seashells has

The Silent Sting of Summer.

With our recent move to the coastal country of Virginia, there are a few things that have become glaringly obvious. First off, trying to pack up over 700 boxes with three kids under the age of six running around is an incredibly hard task. Second, there’s no telling how crazy your kids will act during

TERRA’S KITCHEN: Sweet Potato Tacos PLUS Crispy Citrus Chicken and Garlic Broccoli Skillet.

Every now and again, I like to give a try to something that might give us a hand when we’re down (like when I had the flu this past week and couldn’t cook) OR if we’re just having a really busy week with travel or long days or commutes to the office. It just so

We looked at each other, laughed and then looked at Ava. “Why are you screaming MARRIED like some sort of lunatic?”, I asked. She looked dumbfounded—and thrilled—“Because you kissed mommy and
