Podcast ep #3 on Living Simply with Jessica Harris: Are you taking time to celebrate the wins you experienced in motherhood, even during the stressful times.

Let’s Pause…How are you really feeling?

Enough about me, how are y'all doing? It's Thanksgiving week and I want to take the time to step back from me and focus on you a little bit. We know the world has been very wonky from the pandemic to job loss to deaths of loved ones. This year and last were the first… Continue reading Let’s Pause…How are you really feeling?


I Can’t Have C*vid…I’m A Mom

It's crazy to think now that it was only a year ago that I was battling C*vid. With everything that was going on in my life at that time, I couldn't deal that something else was taking place. In September of 2020 our baby had been diagnosed with a rare form of Cold autoimmune hemolytic… Continue reading I Can’t Have C*vid…I’m A Mom

The first time I ever saw the plus sign on a pregnancy test, I thought I was fooling myself. I had made sure to grab a 3 pack just in case if one of them gave me a false reading. Yea, that positive sign came back up each time. Flashback to 2012 The amount of… Continue reading It’s Positive…


Watch what you say…

Sometimes we say things because it’s the first thing or thought that comes to our mind. But is it the right thing to say? Should I have waited before saying that? Could this have been avoided if I just waited before speaking? Sometimes we get so caught up in our response to a situation or… Continue reading Watch what you say…


I am 1 in 4…Pregnancy and Infant Loss

October is Pregnancy and Infant loss awareness month. But let’s, be honest. This is not the only month that the loss is on our minds. It’s not the only time of the year that it sticks out.

Can I have a party?

My four year old asked me over this weekend if he could have a birthday party. I had to sit and really explain that there was a good chance that he would not have an actual party filled with friends the way he has seen them in the past. It’s more than just the virus.… Continue reading Can I have a party?
