Being a mother is definitely the hardest job ever, but it is also the most rewarding experience any woman could have! I love being a mom, even when I have really tough days.

Today, I want to share with you 5 things I learned so far as a mother, that every new mom should know.

Get Your Swim On At Goldfish Swim School

It's summertime, which means it's time to stay cool in the pool!! Recently, my daughter Adora took her first swim lessons at the new Goldfish Swim School here in Richmond, Virginia.

Why The DivaCup Beats Tampons and Pads

Aunt Flow: "Hey, Girl! How's it going?!"
Me: "Ugh, it's that time again?"
Aunt Flow: "Yep, it's time to bring out those tampons!" 

Luckily, I've ditched the tampons and transitioned over to using a DivaCup over a year ago! It's the best decision I've ever made. If you follow me on Instagram, then you saw my Instastories about the DivaCup about a month or two ago where I talked briefly about it and why I love it! So I want to go into more detail and share the reason why I switched to the DivaCup!

The Promise of the Rainbow

It is still National Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. Please check out my recent post to learn more about pregnancy and infant loss. Today, I am sharing Talysa McCall's story

"A rainbow baby is a baby born after a loss of a previous child. 

It is understood that the beauty of a rainbow does not negate the ravages of any storm. When a rainbow appears, it does not mean that the storm never happened or that we are not still dealing with its aftermath. It means that something beautiful and full of light has appeared in the midst of the darkness and clouds. Storm clouds may still hover, but the rainbow provides a counterbalance of color, energy, and hope." - Unknown
