I recently saw an Instagram video of a woman giving birth, and it wasn’t the first. Now that I think of it, more and more of such personal and sacred moments are being put out there for the world to see. From pregnancy shoots and child birth, to relationship goals and ugly break ups.., it…

I refuse to hold any of it in, I am ecstatic that I made it into the new year! I roll my eyes at most holidays and celebrations, but the blessing of a new year excites me. I am not typically one for “new year, new me” resolutions because, let’s be honest, most of them…
