Growing up, I was incredibly shy. When I was 12, I was moved from private to public school and for the first time, since I was a toddler, had to make new friends. #ad While 8th grade prepared me a bit, high school was even harder since I only knew a handful of people there. I realized that in order to gain the confidence I was seriously lacking, I needed to become a part of something bigger than me. I tried out and made our high school’s dance team, the Titanaires, in 9th grade. Suddenly, that shy girl found herself. I continued to dance throughout high school and discovered the power of teamwork.  We all walked out onto that field the same, no matter how skilled we were, what we looked like or what our home life was like. We came together as a family and put on a show that always had the fans in the bleachers cheering. Being a Titanaire changed me. 20+ years later, I’m still really good friends with a number of my teammates. Now, as the Mother of three girls, I always encourage them to find something they love, practice and become a part of something that will change their lives as it did mine. Whether it’s volleyball, gymnastics, dance or soccer, I watch my girls transform each and every time they practice, perform or play. Did you know that between the ages of 12 and 13, the number of girls who say they’re afraid to fail increases by 150%? By age 14, girls drop out of sports at twice the rate of boys. That’s why @Athleta is committed to helping keep girls in the game. That’s the #PowerofShe.  #AthletaGirl #girlempowerment #girlsquad #girlsrock #womenathletes #womenempowered #womenempowerment #girlmama #girlmom #gymnastics #gymnasticslife #handstand #handstandpractice #novahighschool #novatitans #novatitanalumni #titanaire #letsgotitans

Yesterday, I posted my deepest, darkest secret on my blog. It look me 24 hours to get the nerve to share it on here. I’ve been writing that post for a while. It probably didn’t go live the day I intended it to and it might disappear at some point. But enough is enough. Time for me to put my big girl panties on and stop lying to myself and everyone else. I hope you won’t think any different of me or judge me in any way. I’m still the same person, I’m just not pretending anymore. .

As someone that has suffered with both anxiety and depression for many years, I can tell you that there are signs that your loved one is suffering. While not everyone who exhibits these characteristics is having mental health issues, it's quite possible that those who are, exhibit many symptoms as a result of their anxiety and/or depression. Today on the blog, I’m discussing those symptoms and what to look for if you suspect you or your loved one is suffering with anxiety and/or depression. .

#ad Let’s get real for a moment. While they play a large part in us becoming Mothers, periods are no fun. They also weren’t something that I knew a whole lot about up until a couple of months ago, if I’m being honest. But results from a recent survey got my attention.  3 in 5 women surveyed reported at least one symptom of heavy periods – and among those respondents, over half had not discussed them with a doctor (57%) Why? Most women have resigned to heavy periods as their reality, with 43% saying “it’s just normal for me” and 36% saying “I’ve just learned to live with it.” Sound familiar? I must have said those exact statements plenty of times over the last 30 years.

Thinking back to last month and our stay in that cute little airbnb, it makes me so grateful for the opportunity to blog full-time. Not only do I get to work closely with companies that I love, but occasionally I get the opportunity to take our family on a little, but much needed vacation. It really is the best job I’ve ever had. Today on the blog, I’m continuing my series for bloggers and influencers and discussing what might be the scariest part of this job… pitching companies and applying to campaigns. Head over and check out my suggestions to nail those pitches. I look forward to hearing your thoughts! .

Thinking back to last month...

Prepping for Hurricane Irma

If You Love It, Share It!

It’s been 25 years since Hurricane Andrew hit Florida. I remember it like it was yesterday.  My parents, my cocker spaniel and I were in the upstairs hallway with all of the doors closed. The power was out. It felt like it was 100 degrees in there so I spent most of my time wetting a washcloth and putting it on my dog’s head so she wouldn’t overheat.  The sounds were so loud, like a freight train and seemed to last forever.  I wasn’t sure what was going to happen to us.  I was terrified and prayed that we would all be ok.  Parts of Miami were completely destroyed but being further North, we were lucky.  There was very minimal damage to our neighborhood and we were safe and most of all, grateful.


And now, here I am, a Mother of 3, getting my home and my family prepared for a storm that could be even worse than Andrew.  Severe anxiety is not the best thing to have in a situation like this, but the part of me that is terrified is the part of me that I will not allow to take over.  My girls are my number one priority right now and I’m going to make sure that instead of panicking, I’m making sure that they feel safe.  We’ve stocked up on water and tons of canned food and snacks.  My husband is not only shuttering up our home, but also 3 neighbors homes as well.  He’s pushing himself to unsafe limits at this point because he wants everyone to be safe.  While his concern for others is one of the many reasons I love him so much, it scares me to watch him come inside the house, lay on the floor and ask for an ice pack to keep him from passing out.  Unfortunately, he refuses to stop until everyone’s homes are secure.


Meanwhile, social media is making things SO much worse.  People are exaggerating things and posting “worst case scenarios” and it’s making everyone flip the F out.  Many who were not planning on leaving Florida have decided to take the chance, only to realize that leaving may not be the best option.  Flights out of Florida were sold out days ago from what I hear and with millions trying to evacuate by car, many highways are at a stand still.  Gas shortages are real right now as well.  Imagine jumping on a highway, spending twice the amount of time trying to get to where your going in bumper to bumper traffic, only to realize that you may not have enough gas to get all the way there.  Or worse… running out of gas trying to find a gas station that still has fuel.  The most recent thing I read is that hotels are cancelling reservations if you are late because of the high demand, leaving people stranded, in their cars with no where to sleep.  With the path of Hurricane Irma not definite, they could be putting themselves in danger while trying to run from it.  So many of my friends went West, not realizing that just one little shift in the path and Hurricane Irma could be heading right for them, to the place they tried to escape to.


Our local stores were out of water, batteries and bread as of yesterday.  There are fights breaking out for the little amount of water that does become available in some cities.  It’s all out chaos right now.  And it’s not just the people in Florida who are losing their minds.  Friends and family of those in Florida are on social media making the panic even greater, begging people to leave Florida and to “get out while they can.” Of all the years I’ve lived in Florida, through all the hurricanes I’ve been through, I’ve never seen it quite this chaotic and insane.  Maybe it’s the horrible destruction and flooding we’ve witnessed from Hurricane Harvey recently in Texas or maybe it’s just people forgetting to breathe and allowing the fear to take over.  I find that the more I stay off of social media, the less anxious I feel.   And so, I’m trying my hardest to keep away… at least for now.


While my hubby is out there trying to save the neighborhood, one storm shutter at a time, I am inside asking you all to do the following:

-Be prepared.  Make sure you have supplies, water, flashlights, batteries and plenty of things to keep you and your kids busy just in case the power goes out.  Get all of your important paperwork into a safe place like a ziplock bag, just in case water gets into your home.  I’ve heard that the dishwasher is great for storing things since it’s waterproof and secure.

-Don’t panic.  Your kids will react to this the way they see you reacting.  Be calm.  Assure them that you are there to protect them and that you are doing everything you can to keep your family and your home safe.

-Stay off the roads unless you absolutely have to leave.  If you are in a mandatory evacuation zone, go… but if you aren’t, keep the roads free for those that have to leave their homes.

-Remember that building codes changed after Hurricane Andrew, so homes built after 1992 are built to withstand powerful storms.  And even if your home is damaged, it can be rebuilt.  Possessions can be replaced.  You and your family are the most important thing.  Keep yourselves safe.  Rooms without windows (large walk in closets, laundry rooms) are the best place to be.

-Don’t get on social media and post rumors.  It only makes things worse.  Instead, reassure people that they will be ok… that we will all be ok.  And if you’re a praying person, pray for everyone in Irma’s path.  We all need positivity right now.

-Don’t go outside during the hurricane. No matter how quiet it gets, no matter if the rain and wind has stopped, stay indoors until the hurricane has passed. No video, picture or even your curiosity is worth your life.  Be safe.  That’s the most important thing.

-Lend a hand.  If you are all finished preparing your home, make sure your neighbors are as well.  We are all in this together and we are all going to make it out of this together.


My family and I will be praying for everyone in Irma’s path.  We will be locked down, keeping each other entertained and trying to be as safe as we possibly can be.  The girls really want to be on FB live to keep their minds off of things, so keep an eye out for their updates.  As long as we have power and wi-fi, we will be checking in on our FB page so everyone knows we are safe.   Thank you for all of the positive messages of love and encouragement I’ve gotten over the last couple of days.  We appreciate every single one of them, so keep em coming!
