What Motherhood Means To…Beth

Motherhood to me is one of the most important and fulfilling aspects of my life. I mother with my whole heart and fiercely try to remember the gifts that have been placed in my life.

Our journey into motherhood was not the easiest, yet, without making light of what we went through, I now understand why all the events needed to fall the way they did. It has given me a stronger purpose to be their mom.

A Guilt-Free Treat with VitaTops™ MuffinTops


It’s official. Spring has sprung!

This means beautiful blooms, allergy attacks, unpredictable weather, baseball season (Go Giants!!), and of course, the yearly race to get swimsuit ready. 

Did anyone else kinda cringe a bit at that last one?

Ugh.

I’m not thrilled with where my body is these days, but If you’ve followed me for any length of time you’ll know that I’ve been trying my best to remain consistent in my workouts. Not just for pool days, but to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle in general and set a good example for my girls.

One area that is a struggle for me is snack-time. I want something easy, quick AND delicious, and I usually have a craving for something sweet. ‘Healthy’ isn’t always the first requirement, when I’m scrambling for something at the last minute, but I’ve finally found a great option with VitaTops™ MuffinTops!

I am a mother to 3 boys. Their ages are 11, 9 and 3.

How to Make a “Piece Offering” with EDWARDS® Pie

Peace: a state of harmony between people or groups; freedom from strife.

It’s safe to say that there’s a lot of unrest surrounding us these days. Whether it be differing political views, racial tension, debates over hot topics, or even controversy in movies, peace is not the easiest to come by. 

While I have my views and opinions regarding all of the above, there is one place that peace matters the most to me.

That is inside my home.

It isn’t always easy to keep the peace at home, especially when our children are being disruptive and disobedient, or when my husband and I don’t see eye-to-eye. But as we learned over the weekend, something as simple as a slice of pie can help bring you back together again.

This is where EDWARDS® pies come in.

What Motherhood Means To…Dr. Kim

Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a mom. I remember my sister and I would spend hours using our imaginations playing “house”, and we would argue about who would play the mom and who would play the child. Being the younger sibling I would typically lose that argument and play the child, but when she let me play the mom I was overjoyed.

As a teenager I envisioned being married by 23 and having my first child soon after. For some reason, this number was always in my head. But after going to college and setting my sights on grad school, marriage seemed like the last thing on my mind when I actually became that age.

It was around that time though that I ventured into a long term relationship. I thought he was going to be the one but when we ended things many years later, I found myself single in my very late 20’s.

I wasn’t sure when the reality of being married and becoming a mother was actually going to happen.
