Hi there and thank you so much for visiting my site! My name’s Jessica, I’m a Registered Dietitian and a Colorado native. I’m also a mother of two and currently marching along through this crazy adventure called parenthood. I left my hospital job after my first pregnancy and have been a stay-at-home-mom ever since. From diaper blow-outs to grocery store meltdowns, I completely understand the epic ups and downs of raising tiny humans.
Much of my life I’ve felt that I was waiting for the next big thing, but when I became pregnant with my son it just finally felt right! However, the pressures of being that “perfect” mom who does it all can overwhelm you from the very beginning! There have been so many mornings I have woken up not knowing if I have the strength to face another day of all that is expected of me. But while the trials of parenthood are expansive, the rewards can be so sweet. I have learned to appreciate the small things and surrender my need for control over the others. To accept that its okay to run on coffee, Cheez-Its and the (over-played) YouTube video. To relish in the sticky hands and sloppy kisses. Becoming a mom was the hardest and most incredible thing to ever happen to me and I’m looking forward to sharing this journey with you!
