How To Win At Working From Home

As I nestled into the corner booth at a local coffee shop to begin my work this morning, I had an epiphany. It hit me like a slap in the face – I had suddenly realized that it has been just over 2 years since I left my corporate job to become a work-from-home mom. […]

Why You Don’t Have To Be A Leader To Be A Leading Mom

When I went to my first Leading Moms event in 2012, I was a bit skeptical. I was working in the corporate world, trying to climb the ranks to a senior leadership position. At the time, I didn’t consider myself a ‘leader’. I wasn’t supervising staff, and I wasn’t a key decision maker in the company. […]

An Evening With Nicole Bridger

I first discovered Nicole Bridger when she did a fashion show at last year’s Leading Moms event. She had used moms as models, and every single one of her pieces looked so comfortable, and so fabulous on each of the mommy models (all of different shapes and sizes). I was mesmerized, and wanted to fill […]

GLAM: A Behind-the-Scenes Look at This Year’s Top 30 Mom Blogger Event

It’s hard to believe that only a year ago, I came out as a blogger. While I had been blogging for quite awhile longer, I was hesitant to reveal my true identity to the social media world. I had been hiding behind the “bits of bee” name, and the mysteriously discreet avatar that I still […]

Why Not Add To The Happy Chaos?

Browsing through some old posts, I came across one that I had written about my crazy life as a career mommy of two. In my post, I describe the happy chaos that comes with  juggling between “mama B” and “worker B” and how I live through the dichotomy of both on a daily basis. At the […]

When I Grow Up

When I grow up, I want to be like my 5 year old daughter. I want to have her imagination, the ability to dream up magical worlds full of sweets, princesses and talking animals. High tea with imaginary friends, dance parties with Polly Pockets, and outfits consisting of sparkly fairy wings and bright pink crinolines. I want to […]

Conversations With My Kidlets

I know my children are still very young, and I haven’t even seen a fragment of the changes to come, but it amazes me how much their personalities have changed over the years. I’m starting to discover that my 4 year old is stubborn, intelligent, inquisitive, humorous, and bright. At the age of (almost) 2, […]

Career Mommy I’ll Bee

I’d like to say that it was purely a financial decision. That I only returned to work because it would have been financially impossible for us to live on one income. But truthfully, we could have managed. Money would have been really tight, but it wouldn’t have been impossible. I’d also like to say that […]

Bits of Joy

I’ve been moving through each day as though I am racing through a dream. I can only remember bits and pieces, too busy to absorb each moment. Rushing through routines while my mind is elsewhere. When I’m starting the morning off with the kids, my mind is compiling lists of what needs to be done at work. My […]

Feed The Birds

I was supposed to go to work today, but as I tucked my little ones into bed last night, I thought to myself, I need a day with my babies, work can wait. So I sent a quick email, and it was set. Family Fun Friday would be a full day affair. The kids (thank […]
