Spring in Detroit

Spring in Detroit! Is there any place more wonderful than Detroit in the spring? Nope. Detroit for the win. Spring in Detroit means the city comes out of a deep hibernation. We all gather together at Belle Isle or the Riverfront. We nod at one another or even strike up a conversation, usually having to do with ...

My Detroit Home Birth

I had a baby. At home. On purpose. Let me start this post out by saying that I believe all births are meaningful. Whatever way you bring your baby into this world is a beautiful triumph.

Like mother like son

   When I was a kid I smiled. A lot. I was so busy smiling, I couldn't be bothered to close my mouth and swallow saliva like a normal person. So I would drool like a bulldog from the jowls. I would come home from preschool and my shirt would be soaked with my own ...

Other offers are just too good to pass up. One such example is Sea Life Michigan Aquarium. When they offered complimentary tickets, I jumped, because 1.) who doesn't love an ...

My sweet baby boy is sick… always.

While my friends are out and about with their little ones, enjoying these beautifully sunny days, I am inside taking sick-selfies with my sweet baby Hudson. That's right. Sick-selfies. (Is this already a thing, or do I get to claim the rights to this? Seriously. I have a phone full of 'em.) Right around his first ...
