With the exception of “Learning to Love My Skin“, I don’t typically open up on my blog. I usually reserve my random musings and #keepingitreal moments for Instagram and my personal Facebook page. I’m not sure why. Maybe because those posts get buried in everyone’s feeds and then we move on… But recently I was […]
It wasn’t my first time chatting about glucose screening at a checkup. I was prepared for the conversation, I was empowered knowing my choices, and I knew that ultimately the choice was MINE to make.

I’ve been fairly lucky so far with ridiculous pregnancy cravings so far. But all it took was catching a whiff of fries when we had finished grocery shopping.
