The Home Hunt: Will it be our forever home?

March 5, 2020

We have started the house hunt in the Nashville area, and we know it won’t be an easy search. It is a fast growing city, and cost of housing is pretty inflated right now. Today I wanted to discuss what we are looking for in our next home, as well as addressing will it be our forever home?

Redefining Postpartum Recovery to Support Health and Healing

grandparents - new baby - hospital visit

It’s been over 5 months since Chiara was born, and it took till about the 4 month mark for me to feel like the fog had cleared. You know….when everything stops feeling blurry, and you can actually connect your sentences again! It has been a time when the bliss of being with my baby has also been mixed with the anxiety of feeling like I am not enough for anyone. The joy of seeing her with her siblings was also mixed with feeling down and out of sorts. It is so natural to want to share the highs, and shuffle the lows underneath the rug. Perhaps though, if we gave more pause to the unspoken difficulties of new motherhood, the isolation we tend to feel would dissipate a little more. Having Chiara, like each of my children, has transformed my heart. I hope that in giving words to the often hard and beautiful sides of the coin, you feel the strength to do so too.

I asked my friend Crystal Karges, RDN, to write today’s post. She is a Maternal Health Specialist who has a wonderful way of offering new mothers a healthier perspective during postpartum season…

When we decided to put our home on the market, we wrote a list for everything we would need to do to prep. Beyond a top to bottom deep clean, there are several things we considered to get our home in top shape for the hot market here. We thought we would share this process in case you are going through the same phase of life. So here is an easy guide for prepping your home to sell!


Family Update: We are Moving.

February 13, 2020

We debated whether we should share this now, or wait till the deed is done. However, we realized that since so much of our work in the coming months will be tied into this process that it would be really difficult to keep it under wraps. So with that….. WE ARE MOVING! We have been prepping to get our house on the market. It feels completely surreal because we were hoping to be here much longer, and to be honest feels more on the sad side than anything right now, but I guess that is to be expected when it is a place you love so much.
