Hike It Baby has a strong place in my heart! As a survivor of PPD & PPA, this group rekindled my love for the outdoors & helped me move through it while teaching me everything I know about trekking with my child. As a new mom, it was a place I called home - I felt grounded and secure - and most importantly a sense of connection. I could just breath in the fresh air and release.
"Being physically able to hike like this was exhilarating! It was also probably the last thing I ever expected to be doing so soon after surviving what I dubbed 'the medical gauntlet.'" Read Casey's story here:
“Holding Space,” Is such an art, a dance in relationships. True compassion.
Holding space for someone means that we are willing to walk alongside another person in whatever journey they’re on without judging them, making them feel inadequate, trying to fix them, or trying to impact the outcome.
It’s Sunday night & I am in Love! It’s a winter wonderland outside, and I am getting excited to start my Miracle Morning practice inspired by Hal Alrod tomorrow morning 5:30 am. Here’s what this looks like:

This is a little "Hint" to what I will be bringing to Iris Reproductive Mental Health Services offerings Summer of 2018!!! Can anyone guess?
I knew I wanted to make a music video for this song as soon as I wrote it. When the question of “when” I wanted to shoot it came about, I thought to myself do I... wait after I have the baby and get my body in perfect shape like I’m supposed to? Or do I just embrace where I am at my life, pregnant with my third baby? The answer came easily after sleeping on it. I said “we are shooting a music video even though I am six months pregnant and we will rock this shit!”
I’ve already read some of your comments stating that it’s weird or it makes you uncomfortable or that other successful country female artists would never do this. Well if it makes you uncomfortable then that’s your own issue. As far as other successful country artists not doing this? You’re damn right... I am my own artist and I will continue to express myself in my own way.
I’ve never felt sexier or more confident than I did during this music video shoot. I wanted to showcase that no matter where you are at in your life, shape, or size you can exude that confidence and sexuality in your womanhood!
I wont dive deep into the meaning of the lyrics except that I’m sure you can figure out for yourself how I was feeling when I wrote this song! Now girls take any of that negativity or any of their haters and #flipyourhair

"People spend a lifetime searching for happiness; looking for peace. They chase idle dreams, addictions, religions, even other people, hoping to fill the emptiness that plagues them. The irony is the only place they ever needed to search was within." - Romana L. Anderson

Get into Nature with you kids! This is the first group I joined after the birth of my daughter Vivienne. Minimum 15 minutes in the am and 15 minutes in the afternoon. Build your practice day by day by extending the time frame. Hike It Baby Group taught me so much about my love for nature, influenced my now 4-year-olds adventurous wild side with bugs, flowers, worms, mud, etc., and helped me move through the 'gray days' of motherhood. Check them out, and learn more about layering your babe. There is no bad weather, only poor dressing for the cold.
How many layers do your kids need in the cold? Here's a simple graphic to help!

Truth is, it’s not joyful every minute and that is okay!
Being a mom is hard work, and that’s okay. It’s okay to admit it. It’s okay to cry about it and to vent about it. That doesn’t make us bad at this, and it doesn’t mean we love our kids any less.
