Just Fly All July

This month has been one for the books as I sit and reflect on all that has come from it. On top of launching my podcast and publishing my book, I’ve grown a lot and have learned even more. I’ve also had the opportunity to come face to face with some hard truths that I’ve needed to process about myself in order for me to elevate and to continue to become my greatest version. This month has also been one for celebrations too! My baby girl, Freedom, turned 1 and she is on the move! It’s been amazing to watch her grow and become the bold and free-spirited force that she is.

I was 22 at the time so I felt like I had a lot of more life to live and experience before having chi...

My baby girl Freedom is 11 months old today! My baby boy Legend just turned 2 years old 2 months ago back in April. That means for a smooth 9 months I had the experience of having 2 babies under the age of 2! Some days it’s still surreal to me that I had babies back to back like that. Even now there is still a lot of diapers needing to be changed, crying, and screaming going on at the same time. There are still times where one, if not both of them wake up in the middle of the night and stay awake for hours before going back to sleep. Even with my husband being a great father and my oldest son being an awesome big brother helper, some days still have more challenges than others when it comes to parenting little ones and growing in patience. Quite honestly though, I wouldn’t have it any oth...
