Falling into Fun with Sanuk

Fall. Fun. Leaves. Layers. Lattes. LOVE.
I don't know what it is about fall that makes me want to cozy up with everything stereotypical. If I could sit in front of a warm fire in a pile of leaves (no, I didn't think this through) while eating pumpkin pie, I'd be a happy little basic mom blogger.

When You Feel Like a Bad Mom


Today on Mombies Unite, I'm so excited to feature Emily Fisk's words. If her name sounds familiar, you may remember her powerful essay, Parenting Bravely in a Frightening World. Emily has a way of boiling truth down to its simplest form and then gently streaming it onto a page. This post resonated with me deeply. If you (like me) often find yourself in self-deprecating mom mode, this one's for you.
