“You are suffering from post-weaning depression.”
Say what? Postpartum depression, I’ve heard of. But post-weaning? This has to be fake, right? Nope. It’s a real thing. And turns out it’s something that we women aren’t talking about enough. When I tried to scour the internet for resources, for other women’s stories, for ANYTHING at all pertaining to the topic, the information available is very limited. And when you’re in the thick of a new diagnosis, all you want is more information.
This past month has been tough. I’m so thankful for a husband who supports me and a God who is faithful, even when I feel faithless. I’ll be sharing so much more about this because I want other mamas to know that you are NOT alone. My dr. advised us that any woman could technically experience PPD for the first three years after birth. THREE years! As someone who has never dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, depression or insomnia, this has really rocked my world. I’m so thankful for a community of amazing women who felt my absence and constantly sent me prayers, even though they didn’t know what was going on. I’m working hard to get back to normal, and working hard on learning to give myself grace. Both of which take time, so bare with me as I figure this thing out and share my experiences with you. So much love to all of my GGs. You make the internet a place I actually want to be again. And if you have experienced post-weaning depression, or anything similar, please share your story and tips for coping below. I believe i have been given an opportunity to help women with what I’m learning through this journey, so if you have experienced something similar, I encourage you to share too.
April 1st is my favorite day because it’s the day my favorite person was born. I prayed for a happily ever after and God gave me better than I ever could’ve imagined when He gave me @mattlanter. Love you more than words, penguin. 🐧
So @mattlanter made all my #gilmoregirls dreams come true.
For Christmas, my hot hubby (that’s literally his name in my cell phone LOL) surprised me with a trip to visit Stars Hollow. It was everything I wanted it to be and then some. Anyone else as obsessed with Lorelai and Rory as I am?! If so, comment below with your favorite @gilmoregirls episode... Mine is the WWII dance marathon. But then there’s, “I smell snow...” and my list could go on and on. But if I have to choose, it’s the dance marathon. What’s your favorite?!

Working hard towards my goals for 2019. What’s the BIGGEST goal you set for yourself this year?
I’ve never stuck with a fitness routine before. Consistency is the bane of my existence. This year is going to be different though. This is the year that I’m keeping the promise that I made to myself and getting healthy, fit and in the best shape of my life. I’m going to show up and put the work in, even when I don’t want to.
Let’s chat about goals. I have my goals boldly displayed on my vision board, staring me in the face, reminding me what I’m working for in all areas of my life, up on my office wall. What are you working towards? Let’s chat in the comments below!

Never ask a girl with winged liner why she’s late.
In honor of NYFW, I snuck away from my mom-duties to create this runway-inspired smokey eye look using natural and nourishing products from @burtsbees. I’m loving how it turned out because you know I love a good smokey eye! Here’s what I used:
- Prepped my skin with @burtsbees' Skincare including the Sensitive Facial Cleansing Towelettes (check my stories for more).
- Applied #BurtsBeesBeauty Goodness Glows Liquid Makeup and Concealer, then set my face with their Mattifying Powder Foundation in Bare and contoured using the shade Nutmeg.
- For eyes, I used the Eye Shadow Trio in Shimmering Nudes, Nourishing Eyeliner in Midnight Gray, Nourishing Mascara in Classic Black and the Eyebrow Pencil in Brunette.
- Lastly, I used All Aglow Lip & Cheek Stick in Suez Sands and the Hydrating Facial Mist.
You can find all these products at @ultabeauty. #Ad #HelloGorgeous#FreeYourBeauty
I’d like to thank my husband for making my teenage dream come true in taking me to MEET THE @backstreetboys. I went straight to @aj_mclean and told him he was my absolute favorite.
I’m super proud of myself for not embarrassing @mattlanter... or for dying of a heart attack from the excitement of it all. BEST NIGHT EVER. 😭😭😭
