I love watching this little girl grow. This photo was just taken in early October and she's already a completely different child now. She's running, talking, and has all the best dance moves. She has a favorite stuffed animal, favorite foods and loves to read books. She knows all of her body parts as well as a few animals and what they say.  She knows people's names and can recognize a photo of them on the wall. This child is so bright and so beautiful and there's nothing I love more than being her mom 😍

Today was a big day. Today, I ended my 19+ months of being "just" a stay-at-home mom and blogger and officially went back to work outside the home. Last month, I officially accepted a position as a Behavioral Health Professional, working with kids with behavioral issues and disabilities and today I had my first full day away from Allie. While I missed her terribly, it was so refreshing to have the opportunity to talk to and work with other adults for the first time in 2.5 years. I’m so incredibly excited for this opportunity and to start making a difference in these families’ lives. HUGE huge thank you to my husband for being the stay-at-home parent this month and another huge thank you to my sisters (@alexvic3179 and @kendalanne4), Zack’s mom (@mbartlett28) and anyone else who may be watching Allie in order to allow me to go back to work and pursue this dream. 😍

Lately, I've become obsessed with the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. My skin is so acne prone these days and this lotion dries them right up overnight. It's become one of my holy grail beauty products. Check out the blog for five more of my holy grail beauty products! {link in the bio}

Because sometimes mama needs some alone time 👌🏻😂 after a crazy busy past few days, I’m so happy to be spending this next hour in the tub, enjoying some much needed silence...well, until the munchkin wakes up from her nap and ruins it 😂 #momlife how are you de-stressing from the holidays? •
