Meet a Mama: Tessa Vickers

Hi! I’m Tessa and I was born and raised in Leawood, Kansas, I went to Kansas State University and met my husband, Ryan, in Kansas City. After getting engaged, we decided to quit our jobs and move to Denver, Colorado. We have been married for 6 years and have lived in sunny Colorado for over 7 years. We currently live in Golden, Colorado where we are in the process of remodeling our home. We are so grateful for all Colorado has to offer our family; there are so many wonderful outdoor activities, it makes being a stay at home mama a lot easier and more fun. I love a good weekday hike followed by a delicious craft beer (let me know if you want to join!). We have one little girl, Lennon, who is 16 months old and has brought so much love and joy to our lives. I love being a SAHM with my girl, time does not seem to slow down and I want to savor every minute I can with her.

Five wellness rituals to add to your routine

Hopefully, you’re reading this because you realize self-care is important. As a new mama, it can be hard to make time for myself but I realize that when I do invest in myself, I’m a better human overall. I’m able to show up as my best self and be more present. Of course, I love self-care in the form of manicures and facials but I’m always on the lookout for natural ways to cultivate healthy habits. Especially if they keep me well, happy and thriving. The below rituals aren’t new by any means, actually, some of them are gaining in popularity but I thought it would be fun to roundup some of my favorites to share with ya’ll.

Chattanooga Travel Guide

When we moved to Nashville, Chattanooga quickly became a spot on our must-visit list. As outdoor lovers, we knew it would be a great place for a mini-vacation. A lot of people head to the Great Smokey Mountains but we knew we wanted a destination that we felt we could conquer in a long weekend. The best part, it is only a 2.5hr drive from Nashville.

Hello! My name is Allie Bates and I was born and raised in Jefferson City, Missouri. I spent my college years at The University of Central Missouri majoring in Public Relations and cheering on our Mules and Jennies on the sidelines with the UCM Dance Team.

Easy ways to create a less toxic home

Creating a healthier, less toxic home can seem daunting. I get it, there are so many resources and products out there shouting down at you. I truly believe the best way to start is to just jump in and select a few ways you believe you can consistently make a difference in your home. Don’t feel pressured to do all these things at once. I personally ditched the all-or-nothing mindset and just embraced that I’m doing my best to create a greener home. I’ve been doing this now for almost three years and I can tell you it’s an ever-evolving journey — you live and you learn.

Meet a Mama: Liz Binder

I am so excited to kick-off the Meet a Mama Series this week. First up is a good friend of mine. Like me, she’s moved around quite a bit the last few years and has raised her little one away from her hometown/family. We met in college and have been friends ever since. I knew when I started this series she’d be one of the first moms I’d feature!

New: Meet a Mama Series

Hey y’all. I feel like it’s been a hot second since I’ve written anything on here. The last blog post I published was in early April. Since then, Logan celebrated her first birthday and as she’s entering toddlerhood, I’ve been connecting with my mom friends and asking them loads of questions. Most of the things we received on our registry are no longer being used – swings, jumpers, etc. so now it’s time to step up my game with toys to keep her active little mind entertained.

My experience with Emsella at Monarch PS

So here we are. I’m almost 9 months postpartum. Right after Logan was born, I was very adamant about doing postpartum PT for diastasis recti and pelvic floor health. I had a long labor with Logan and knew that all of this would be really important longterm because of how active I am.
