Madewell x Milk

Years ago when I lived in Brooklyn I found this bakery called Milk Bar and  I became obsessed immediately. Their cookies were amazing, they were complex, and just delicious       There wasn’t anything I ever tasted like them before.

When I was living in Brooklyn and then New Jersey and I didn’t have a lot of friends am I started baking out of the Milk cookbook and it kinda saved my life. I had my kids that were small and I was stuck in the house so I didn’t really have anything else to do so I baked. And the recipes in this book are very complex we’re talking 4 different steps just to make a cookie, crazy stuff!!

But anyways I read it over and over again and I just like fell in love with them.  I felt like this bakery was my soulmate, I’m not gonna lie.
This is actually how and why I started my blog. The name itself ‘Cookies And Daydream’ is from baking cookies out of the Milk Bar Cookbook. The second post on this blog is about Milk Bar! It’s crazy! 
So now they did  a collaboration with Madewell   I love them too! I wear their jeans every single day and their T-shirts are amazing. So I am incredibly excited about this!

Like the T-shirts they came out with has a little pocket and it looks like a cookie is being dunked into the pocket it’s adorable, needless to say I totally got it. 

So I feel like my life and Milk bar have been intertwined for years and I love it! 
I can’t wait to make some cookies out of the cookbook for Christmas! 
Now I just need to get my hands on that apron. They didn’t have it at the store we went to and it’s sold out online. I guess I’m going on another road trip. Hahahaha.

Beer Tour, First stop.....

Ok soo I'm not gonna lie, I've had a lot of time on my hands recently, I lost my job and I have been going out of my mind from boredom. I don't know how you stay at home moms do it because I'm going crazy over here.
I just need to have a break and have somewhere to go and now I have nothing. No adult communication, nothing. I have been super depressed and just not feeling like myself lately.
So when I was at therapy today ( yes, I go to therapy. I personally think that everyone should go,  especially if your insurance is going to pay for it, BOOM). So I'm talking to my therapist about how I'm just not feeling 100, and she was kinda like 'blah blah blah, if you’re not feeling yourself then do something about it!' and I was all like, 'true story'.
So here I am.
Back at the blog. I've been doing this blog for almost 7 years but it hasn't alway been easy. I never really wrote about the crappy stuff in my life.
Like my divorce 5 years ago.
Stuff like that. 
Not fun
But anyways, thats another story.
So I was thinking, what else do I know reaaallllly well?!!? My town!!
I mean I moved away for 10 years but I know this town and it has changed soooo much. I like to think for the good, but whatever. I miss all the farm land.
But the one thing I noticed was how many breweries there were now. I mean come on, I love beer, clearly. And one thing I learned from living in the city was good beer.
So I figured I would go on an adult beer crawl, with my children in tow. Because whats more fun than kids and beer?!!
Nothing, seriously it’s not that fun. Kids can be assholes sometimes, and thats why adults are allowed to drink! 

So the first place we decided to go was Evergrain Brewery in Camp Hill. I grew up riding my bike in the back parking lot when it was the Mercades dealership. So that’s definitely a good spot for me. 
So they are kid friendly if you get there earlier enough to be able to get a table. Otherwise you just have to stand around and coral your young. They don’t take reservations so it’s first come first take. HA. They have a ping pong table, and a cornhole games to play to entertain the kids, and yourself. I was having a pretty awesome game of ping pong when we went. Hahahaha. The beer is truly delicious and they have something for everyone. I love IPA so their Juice Joosey is one of my favorites. 

They also sell beer Togo in Crowlers or Growlers and you can bring your own Growler to be filled. 

They have a good window that you can get food from called Red Sky Cafe. Their pretzels πŸ₯¨ are amazzzing especially if you’re drinking beer. 
They also have free ice and water for everyone! 
So I would give them πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ 
They just need more tables for every one and they I would love that place even more. 

Check it out!

Ace & Jig bedding

So Land of Nod came out with a line from Ace & Jig, a collection of baby things and whatnot and I reallllly wanted to get it but I couldn’t really justify $50 crib sheets. Maybe if they were full size sheets but no, not baby sheets.
But then they went on sale so I totally bought them!!

They are basic black and white so you could use for a boy or girl. The set came with a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and a pillow case.

Ace and Jig are a company out of Brooklyn and they have amazing dresses and rompers. My boobs are huge so I don’t know if I could fit in any of their stuff. But I still like to look πŸ‘€

I’m still in the process of renovating Remy’s room so I just buy things a little bit at a time. Then it’s not so overwhelming financial. I learned that the hard way with the first house I bought. I thought everything had to be perfect right away but this time around I’m going slowly. 
Clearly I know that’s not the case now because it would cost like, $500,000.00 to renovate my house and fill it with furniture.
Wish me luck!

Mini Philly Trip

I'm  usually busy during the week but I had a day free, so I decided to take a drive to Philly. I'm super obsessed with this new podcast, Dirty John, so it wasn't like i was driving at all. 
I wanted to get the new Madewell sweater they came out with. 
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE shopping online. especially late at night when everyone is asleep I can't fall asleep . HA.
But my body is weird from nursing Remy and eating like crap. So not everything looks good. 
I will put jeans on if I totally have to but they definitely need to be high-rise so it can suck all my mom stuff in. HA.

So Madewell has been my go-to lately, they have a 10" high-rise that I'm totally in love with! I can wash them over and over again and the quality lasts, so I keep buying them. 

So I'm driving and listening to my podcast and before I know it I'm in Center City Philly parallel parking my car like a pro. BOOM!
I was in and out the store in less than 30 mins. hahahahaha. I was deinitly in the car driving longer than I was actually in the city itself. Remy is awesome in the car, he just eats, talks, and then goes to sleep, its really amazing. Then we get to the stores and he pulls all the clothing all over the place. Ooooh Remy. 

All in all it was a pretty chill Monday. I got to watch Hocus Pocus with the kids and snuggle up in the awesome sweatpants I got. WIN!

Remy's First Birthday!

I can't believe that its been a year already! Time goes by so fast when you are busy and with 3 kids, so clearly I've been forgetting to write. I'm sorry.
So we had a super fun birthday party with just a few friends and a ton of balloons. I've realized that kids will be happy if you just have a ton of balloons. Hahahah.

I was just excited to buy baby stuff again! HA. Logan just turned 9 so he's all about video games and whatnot but its fun to shop for Remy.
I was looking at these Gather playmats for him for awhile so I went for it and got one.
 They are so well made! its just a big leather mat that you can fold up and wipe off if you spill something, and Remy usually is throwing his food around. So the mat is amazing, even the big kids play on it. Logan is playing on it as I write this. I also got some really cool handmade wooden toys from Bannor Toys.

They have every state made into a little rattle toy. They are super adorable and Remy loves his.

I also got the boys some personalized chalkboard from Chalk Full of Design to practice their names, Dylan was having some trouble with his "e"s. They are really cute and you can reuse them! They came with a chalkboard pen, so you can just write on the boards and then wipe them off with a baby wipe.
And we alll know that as moms we use baby wipes you clean up just about everything. HA.
So there it is, a month late but still. HAPPY BIRTHDAY REMY!!

WXPN Festival

Last Saturday we went to Philadelphia to go to the WXPN Festival.
I actually got 2 free 'go-everywhere' passes from being a member of the radio station. I listen to WXPN (99.7 here in Central PA) everyday, its the only radio station i listen to in my car. Its a local radio station out of Philadelphia, it features a ton of local artists so I LOVE it! So donating and being a member just makes sense.
So the festival was actually in Camden NJ, so we parked in my old neighborhood in Philly and took the ferry over. In all the years I lived in Philly I never took the ferry. It was soooo much fun!
When I first stepped on the ferry I felt like I was walking on a trampoline, I defiantly didn't have my sea legs. Hahahaha. I seriously had my head out the widow the whole way across the river, I felt like a little kid.
Once we got to the festival it was like a kid in a candy store, there were multiple stages so you could walk all around the waterfront. There were vendors, Dogfish Head Brewery was there, Subaru was there donating books to the schools in Camden. They even had the Children's Garden open but we got there a little too late (I wanted to go shopping at Anthropologie, don't judge me).
But they had free water and ice tea from Turkey Hill and a separate chill space just for members, so it was perfect for us and the kids. The boys had a blast, they ran around the grass and wrestled each other. its kinds nice going to concert with kids now, before you would have to fight everyone around you to get some space but with kids people move away from you. hahahahaha it's kinda perfect. Like a child barrier, I guess no one whats to be around a couple of rowdy kids.

But seriously, it was the most perfect day. Matt (my fiancΓ©) doesn't get off work often so it was really nice for us all to spend time together. We also hit up the Nordstrom sale on the way into the city, is was AMAZING, seriously, check it out online!

Im sorry for not post more but this summer has been absolutely crazy. I'm counting down the days until the kids are back in school, seriously.

Mini Beach Trip

Ok so it's been a few days since we've been home from the beach, it took me a little bit to get my brain back from being fried in the sun but it was so much fun! We went to Ocean City Maryland for 2 days and let me tell you, 2 days was enough! Hahahah.
Dylan got all cut up from boogie boarding and by the second day I hated the sand. I'm still vacuuming  sand out of my car.
we got to go eat at Phillip's Seafood and it was soooo good. I was so full from seafood that I could hardly move after and Remy was eating ribs like a champ. He may not have any teeth but that doesn't mean he can't eat. Hahahaha


I'm defenitly more of a pool girl but the kids loved the beach. And it definitely didn't hurt that there were awesome outlets all over the place! It was amazing! Kate Spade, Levis', Alex and Ani, Build-A-Bear, GAP, you name it, they had it. The deals they had were crazy! Vans had buy one get on 50% off, so I bought the boys shoes. Lucky Brand Jeans had 30-70% off so I got these booties for $25!!! I should definitely go back for before school shopping πŸ€”


I would drive down just to shop. Just kidding, Dylan wouldn't stop talking on the drive home. almost 3 hours straight. I tried to pay him to stop talking and that didn't work. That kid would do anything for money too. HA. 
Now to plan our next little trip 😜✌🏽

Natural deodorant

So for the past few months I have been using natural deodorant and it has been, well interesting. HA.
So I detoxed from 'real' deodorant for almost 2 weeks. I seriously didn't wear anything for weeks. It was kinda gross in not gonna lie. I smelled like cat pee. lol, I swear! 
I would be out and about and I would keep getting a whiff of cat pee! I don't know. Maybe it wasn't me. Everyone smells different 😏
So I went to GNC and got PiperWai natural deodorant. It was made by two girls in their kitchen, in Philly nonetheless! And I loved their Ad.

I'm a HUGE sucker for advertising. If its funny and makes me laugh, I'll probably buy it.
So I used it for about a month so far. I like the roll on stick vs. the jar because I really don't like rubbing stuff in my armpits with my fingers. 
Call me crazy but I think it's gross to rub my fingers in my pits.
Ok so first let me remind you that I live in Pennsylvania. Where the humidity feels like you are wearing a fur coat outside. Or it's nice and cool. You never know! 
But for the most part it's hot and sticky and I sweat, a lot.
Like a farmer working in the hot sun all day. I'm gross. 
And the natural deodorant is just that, deodorant. Not an anti-perserant. So it's doesn't stop you from sweating and yes, I know that sweating is normal. 
I just don't like it.
I don't like my shirt being soaking wet, this is not a wet t-shirt contest! 
It's hard enough carring a baby around, (and boobs filled will hot milk) I don't need my armpits to be faucets of sweat too. 
So for me, the natural deodorant didn't work.
I'm sorry. I tried. I just rather not sweat. 
So if you don't sweat like a hog then go for it! I gave some to my friend who doesn't wear deodorant and she loves it!
So everyone is different. 
I hope you try it and love it!

The Dead and Co

So yesterday we packed up the whole family and drove to Philly for The Dead and Co show. Well we weren't really going to the show but regardless, we went to Philly. Hahahaha. 
I wanted to go shopping at Anthropologie and my friend was selling his tie-dyes and he told to come sell my indigo's! So I figured, why not!!? 



The kids had so much fun! 
I used to take Logan to Phish concerts when he was little and I was pregnant with Dylan. So this is nothing new to me but kids forget everything. So they ran up and down and sold tie-dyes. Hahahaha. I truly didn't think they would have as much fun as they did. 


We just hung out in the Volkswagen Van and had a great time. It definitely gives you a different perspective about concerts. I used to be the one getting drunk and not remembering the music but now it's different. I am able to enjoy the time with my family and be happy 😊 


Now I get to sit here and fold laundry while the baby sleeps. Perfect Monday afternoon πŸ‘πŸ½

Jubilee Day

So Thursday was Jubilee Day, the longest 1 day street fair in the United States!! Woohooo! 
It also happened to be 3 blocks from where we just bought a house. So obviously I had to have a party πŸŽ‰ 
It was mostly for the kids, that's all I really worry about anymore. The adults have done Jubilee Day before, they know what they are doing. Hahahaha. 
But I'm all about the kiddos. I had 2 pools set up, a bubble machine, and a ton of snacks. 
The kids had so much fun playing in the pool and it was a perfect day out, not too humid. And for it being the middle of June in Pennsylvania, that's surprising. Usually it's like walking outside with a fur coat on. You're sweating just putting the kids in the car. No wonder people go crazy in the summer! 


This little nugget hates the heat but he looks so cute all naked in his baby sling 😍😍
Jubilee day is all about the food to me. Crab cake sandwiches, giant turkey legs, kabobs, funnel cake, ice cream, ohmygosh I need to stop I'm getting hungry again. Hahaha. 
The kids road some rides with their friends and we got to see some live music. 
Logan smashed his face on the back steps of our porch so our little party had to be put on hold so I could rush him to the dentist. An hour later he was all fixed up and ready to go back and ride the rides. HA. Typical kid. 

This picture was taken after the face smashing incident and everyone was hot and cranky at that point. πŸ˜‘πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

It's Sunday and I'm finally getting around to posting this. HA. This weekend has been crazy! Birthday parties πŸŽ‰ and we are still unpacking πŸ˜‘ 

Here's to surviving through the week ✌🏽❤️


June 13, 2017

House shiiiiiiiii..... you know

So everything is moved in and pretty much put away. Except for the fact that we need dressers and more furniture but I'll deal with that later. 

I was totally overwhelmed the first 2 nights here. I couldn't find anything and I felt like I was so busy that I couldn't even take a shower, I definitely wore the same  Dwell+ Slumber dress two days in a row. I have no shame. 

I was actually detoxing from my aluminum deodorant too. So I was dirty AND smelly. It was kinda the worst. I was an all around hot mess. I can't believe I got through it. Hahahaha. I've been in much worse situations, believe me. 

The boys were having a blast, setting up their new room and playing with toys that they forgot about. You know, kid stuff! 


But I had to get moving, literally, like unpack some shit. These book weren't going to unpack themselves. So I had to pull myself together and start with a plan. 

I would go and set up each room one by one. Starting with the baby's room! 

 Considering that almost every room need to be painted or wallpapered, I'm trying to make the most out of it. HA. I got this awesome letter board from a mama on the

Wildbird chitchat page. 


And it's definitely going in Remy's room. I just need to find the nails. 

So all in all it's coming along. I'm having a party in a few days so I need to get it together! 

Wish me luck! 



P. S. I still don't have the internet at my house. I am currently sitting in a parking lot writing this. #reallife 😘

On the level

As I'm sitting here in the Arby's drive threw, trying to relax and Mac DeMarco comes on the radio (I listen to the radio allll the time, WXPN FOR LIFE!) and I'm straight chilling now. I'm 'On The Level' 😜✌🏽❤️
Even if it was just for a minute or 3 πŸ˜‰
But I love how music can just take you somewhere else, mentally. And I need to be somewhere else right now. My life is in chaos. It's after 10 pm Wednesday night and we are just getting done. 
My whole house all fits in the downstairs part of my new house. Hahahah. 

The kids could care less. As long as they have their movies and video games, they're fine. 


But seriously, I'm so stressed out. 
I heard saying the word 'stress' makes you more stressed out actually. So maybe I'm just overwhelmed. There, that sounds much more manageable. 
But yea, there is no internet at the new house. I'm being blocked or something, it's probably the Russians. Lol πŸ˜† 
Yea, that's why I'm sitting at Arby's listening to the radio. 
Alright gotta head back to the house and keep unpacking. 

Pray for me, y'all

Day tripping

So yesterday with all the chaos that comes from buying a home, I drove to Manhattan in the middle of it all πŸ˜‘
Why?! You ask. 
Because my ex-husband still works and lives up there and my middle son, Dylan misses the city like no other child. So dad and son are having a little vacay together. 
Logan, the oldest, didn't want to go. He said he doesn't like the city anymore. "It's loud and when I'm trying to sleep at night there are always people making noise!" That's what Logan says πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ€£
So him, Remy, and I just strolled around Manhattan for a little before we packed it up and drove home. 
Logan loves to read so he wanted to stop at The Strand bookstore and let me tell you, it's AWESOME!! We could of looked at stuff in there for hours. 

Logan and I thought theses were super funny! Tiny hands πŸ–πŸΌ 



The trip was fun but the day was loooooong. We didn't get home till after midnight and now I need to start moving stuff into the new house. 
But sometimes it's nice to take a little break.

Crazy daze

So this week has been super crazy, just like all the weeks before.  Buying this house has been super stressful, like buying any house. This house is historic so I have to follow certain rules if I want to update things. Blah blah blah. Home owners insurance, a home warranty because the house was built in 1890, and transferring all the bills. All while packing up the house and dealing with the kids. Matt has been working at the Post Office for 12hours+ everyday, poor guy. So he's not around to help much. Plus the boys are almost done with school. Thank goodness! Because I'm sick of waking up early in the morning and dealing with their cranky butts. 
And Remy has been teething like crazy and not wanting to sleep so that's been awesome πŸ˜‘ 
I just need to get through this weekend. Once we are moved into the house everything will get better, right?!? 
It has to! 
Because I don't think it can get any crazier 😬 
If you don't hear from me in a few days, send help. Lol

World's kinda-worst Mom

I'm sitting here while I should be folding laundry but I'm too damn annoyed to do it. 
My kids are spoiled. 
There I said it. But the thing is, it's my fault. 
I give them everything they ask for, within reason, and they act like total jerks to me. And to each other!!
I got one kid asking me to order pizza EVERY. SINGLE. NIGHT. I'm not even kidding when I say this. It's the most annoying thing ever. 
Why? You ask!?
Because you can't feed your 8 year old pizza every night. 
1. You will go broke. 
2. It's seriously just not normal to eat pizza every single day. 
Conform. Try something new. 
Bread, sauce, and cheese and not the only ingredients in the world. Yes, they are amazing. And I do LOVE pizza but seriously. 

And then I have another kid that thinks the word 'no' is just an option. 
Case in point- 
Dylan- can I go to my friends house on a school night?!
Me- no, it's a school night. 
Dylan- (scoots away on this scooter 🏍) 
Me- πŸ˜‘ (takes scooter away and makes him to go his room) 

Now they are both sitting in the living room in complete silence until bedtime. 
Well every once in a while one of them tells me "you used to be nice". HA. 
Yea, I used to be nice when you used to listen to me! Or "this is the worst night ever". 
Now I'm not expecting them to complete angels but come on. I have to tell them something 4 times before they listen. 
My mom used to make me sit at the dinner table all night if I didn't finish my dinner. Thank goodness my Grandparents raised me so I didn't have to do that too often. HA. 

Sorry for the rant. Sometimes it just feels good to get it out. And please let me know I'm not the only one with bad children. 


May 15, 2017

Coover Street

Last year at this exact time, we moved into the house we thought we would live in forever. Well that didn't happen but that's fine. Everything happens for a reason.
So now we did find my dream house and we are officially moving!! Yaaay!!! 
I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure.
But its for SUUUURREEE!!
Sooo crazy! 


We actually move in this weekend. 
And they tried to tell us that this key was to lock the doors. 
So clearly I will be going to the hardware store to be making some updates. Hahahahha. 
The house was built in 1890 so some things are a little dated, understandably. 
But knowing me and my kids I'll probably put up a while security system with cameras and whatnot. 
I know what I did when I was a teenager and my kids will NOT be acting like that. Hahahahahaha. 
But seriously, I'm so excited! 

The floors are approved by Remy, so he can crawl all over the place! 
The fireplace on the other hand definitely needs to be updated. 
I'm so glad to be able to update and renovate a house again! 
Stay tuned for fix-ups and fuck-ups because you know it's gonna happen! Hahahaha

Indigo Slings

So for the past few weeks I have been in between jobs. And needless to say I have been going crazy at home. I never take off work. I went back to work 5 days after having Remy.
So to occupy my time I started making Indigo dyes.
Indigo dyes?! You ask yourself. It's like tie-dye but there is an oxidation process blah blah blah. 
They look like this. 

This is a baby sling I made. I have been doing custom orders for baby slings and pretty much anything else you could think of. Curtains, pillowcases, shirts, baby onesies, and dish towels. 
Shirts for the boys. HA. 


This is also a custom dye baby sling that I sold to a mom. 
So in my "free" time I kinda made a little business for myself and I couldn't do it without the love and support from my family and the awesome mamas in the WildBird Facebook group. Without them I would just be a weirdo dying pillowcases in my kids play room. 
So if anyone wants to buy an awesome handmade sling, made by moms in Utah check out Wildbird. The mama that owns the company is amazing and I've had nothing but great experience with them! 
And if you would like anything dyed just shoot me an email on here! 
It's be getting the Etsy store up and running after we move. 
That's right folks! We are moving, again, but I'll tell you all about it later.

Fun time at the Library!

So there are soooo many things going on right now, I will post about that soon, but I took some time out and went to the library with Remy. I met my friend and her son there, they go all the time but this was my first. 
It was fun to hang out with my friend and other moms. She also did some pics for me πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜œ
She told me I take the same boring pictures. So this is me waiving to a complete stranger on the street. Hahahaha. Heyyyyyy πŸ‘‹πŸΌ
It's always fun to have friends to tell you when you look stupid, or not πŸ˜’ hahahahahaha.

Smithsonian Trip

Last weekend the whole family went down to Washington DC and went to the Smithsonian!!
It was so much fun!
My Dad planned it all and by 'planning' I mean, he did absolutely no planning and didn't even know what the weather was going to be like that day. But still he tried so I have to give him some credit. HA.
So we met him down there, he drove down with the big kids. Matt, baby Remy and I drove separately. And come to find out, PARKING IS FREE ON SUNDAYS!!
So if you plan on visiting the Smithsonian sometime this summer, go on a Sunday!
All the museums are free to get in. They do a quick bag check and you're good to go!
We started at the Air and Space Museum.
The boys loved it!

There is a sculpture exhibit outside that was pretty cool!


Then we went to the National Museum of Natural History. Outside the building is a bird sanctuary, there is a bird nest in the dinosaur mouth.


Most of the museums are right around the Mall so you don't need to walk too far. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes AND socks! 

Dylan had a problem with his socks and then didn't want to walk anywhere. lol I bribed him with a milkshake from Shake Shack. It kinda worked, until he spilt it all over the floor of my car on the way home πŸ˜‘ 
This is how I cleaned it...... 

 Hahahahahaha. Juuuust kidding. That was down at one of the museums. 
But it was a super fun time. If you live close enough to take a day trip you should totally do it! 
Your kids will love it! And I'm so glad I brought my WildBird baby sling to carry Remy around in. No need for a stroller!

The Woman's March

This past Saturday I took part in the Woman March. There were a few reasons why I decided to go.
For the past few weeks I have been feeling a little anxious, I think a few of us were. Anxiety for what is going to come, or what has already come since it's already Tuesday.
So the inauguration happened. People were pissed and protested. Some smoked weed in protest and some broke stuff. So Friday was a little stressful but it happened. It's done. So I've moved on.
Now Saturday rolls around. I worked Friday night, I'm a server, so I really didn't want to get up and get the kids ready to be outside all day.  But I knew I needed to go. I knew that if i didn't go I would be disappointed in myself.
So I get the kids and myself dressed. My oldest, Logan refused to go 'I don't March. I hate marching'. He said. He's never been to a march or a demonstration or any sort but that was his right. So I dropped him off with my mom.
So we went to Harrisburg. My hometown, where I was born and the capitol of my home state, good old Pennsylvania. When we got to the capitol there were only a few women there. Mostly older, some with canes and walkers.

They obviously couldn't March the blocks leading up to the capitol. So I stood  and talked with them for awhile. They applauded me for bringing my kids. I really didn't think about it earlier, I just needed to bring them with. Mostly because Remy is still nursing.
But as a mother I'm glad my children are experiencing history.

So then all of a sudden I hear voices in the distance "EQUAL PAY FOR EQUAL WORK"!! "LOVE TRUMPS HATE"!!

And I start to get really happy! Like all the anxiety that I had was starting to disappear as I see the mass of women coming toward me.

It's like it all clicked. I was in the right place at the right time for me, personally. This is exactly where I needed to be. I needed to be with these other people, women, men, young, old, kids with there parents and grandparents. People of every color and religion all together for one reason. Women's rights.
Women's right to choose what to do with their bodies and not have a man tell us otherwise. For the same amount of pay for the same amount of work. You know, things that sound normal if you're a man.
Well Sunday came around and I was still feeling the buzz of the day before. Hearing about all the other women marching all over the world. It was such a great feeling. And then Monday came and say la vie. It's like Saturday didn't even happen. But it did. And I remember how it felt to be there and I'm ready for the next march. Because that's all Mr. Trump has really done is brought us closer together. 

Ps I just want to add that I wrote this whole thing while breastfeeding my baby, girl power ✌🏽❤️

Xoxo xox
