Show Up: Time to Take Action

“I’m not ____ enough.”   We’ve all heard that voice and motherhood can provide it with a whole new vocabulary to pull from.  The Adventure Mamas community works to quiet that voice and to be successful, it takes a village of Mamas who are willing to show up, and that, takes courage.  Showing up requires that weContinue reading “Show Up: Time to Take Action”

Project Swaddle Then Send

Part 1: SWADDLE I’ve hesitated on writing this blog post for awhile.

Choose Your Own Adventure

  After the birth of my little man, I looked at self-care and adventure in a similar way (spoiler: both negatively). There wasn’t time, I didn’t deserve it, my job was to focus entirely on this little thing I created because if I hesitated for a second, if I shifted my attention minutely, it wouldContinue reading “Choose Your Own Adventure”
