    Making Marriage Work: Why It’s Important to Accept Influence from Your Partner

    Me and my hubby on our wedding day In December (2018), my husband and I celebrated 15 years of marriage. We have made it through grad school, law school, infertility, premature twins, my sick and then dying mother, and many other struggles in between. Making a marriage work is… work. I would be lying if I told you it has all been bliss. It has not. In fact, a few months into our marriage we just about called it quits. Looking back now, I can see why we struggled to make our marriage work. We are both very strong willed and stubborn people which led to some ridiculous fights in…

    Work-Life Balance… Sorta….

    It was after the birth of my first son that I realized that I needed to embark on some sort of work-life balance if I was going to keep my sanity as I attempted to be a working mom. I had quickly come to realize that, although being a working mom is invigorating and rewarding, being a working mom is also complicated and exhausting. And… not easy. However, all I saw was other working moms making it look so easy. They were either painting on a nice smile, hiding their exhausted over stressed true self, or I was not pulling off being a working mom very well. Others were looking…

    5 Things You Need to Know About Losing a Parent

    I will never forget the day I got the call confirming my mom had cancer.  We had spent the weekend thinking that she might have bronchitis or worst-case scenario pneumonia. Instead, we found out she had stage four ovarian cancer. It was one of those calls where time stands still and everything fades to black. I had just dropped my daughters off at the local rec centre for summer camp when the call came. There I was standing outside in the beautiful summer heat on what should have been a perfect summer day and my world began to narrow and crumble. The heartache and loneliness I felt that day was…

    Do I Have A Drinking Problem?

    Ever noticed on Facebook or Instagram that whenever moms are hanging out together or venting about having a bad day there is often a reference to booze (usually wine)? Why is that? Okay, besides the obvious reason that wine is delicious. I remember when I first found out that I was pregnant with twins I reached out to another mom who had two-year-old twins and asked if she had any advice for me. She wrote back one sentence. “Buy a case of wine”. I wrote back “ha, ha, seriously though” she responded with 1 word: “seriously”.I laughed it off and then proceeded to take her advice. I would not say…

    How I discovered I had skin cancer

    I consider myself a vain person. Being vain is not an easy thing to admit, but in this case being vain helped me discover that I had skin cancer.  Around two years ago, I noticed that I had the smallest red spot in the middle of my forehead that would not go away.  It looked like a very small pimple.  I went to a laser clinic and had them laser it off. The procedure only aggravated the sore and now I not only had a red spot in the middle of my forehead, but now it was a tiny open sore that would not heal. I finally went to my…
