Do you find yourself wondering if it’s the right time to take a break from your acting career? It could be that you are tired, burnt out, and feeling generally unfulfilled. Your survival job is starting to feel like a relief compared to your passion. You start to...
When planning my daughter’s 4th birthday party last year, I was thinking of what kinds of awesome and easy DIY Birthday Party Favors I could make that would actually be used and played with. I didn’t want to fill up a goodie bag with a bunch of dollar store stuff and candy. These party favors needed to be practical, inexpensive, and most importantly, FUN!
This Kid Friendly Recipe for 3 Ingredient Chicken Parmesan is TOO easy. It’s just 3 ingredients and perfect for kids who want to eat fancy but you know they’re lying. All they want is chicken nuggets, so that’s what we’re gonna give them.
Motherhood is terrifying. I spend all day of every single day making sure my daughters don’t choke, or fall, or hit their heads, or run into the street or fall off the porch. I imagine going back to these roles after becoming a mother would be very difficult emotionally. How would I shed the rehearsal “high” and realign my brain back to the real world?

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, shocked at what you see? You pass by the mirror and take one glance and something catches your eye and makes you stop. Maybe it’s your thinning postpartum hair, or the bags under your eyes, but it hits you like a brick....
I won’t be shamed or feel guilty for not indulging my creativity during this time of utter chaos, or throwing screen time limits out the window. And you shouldn’t, either. You’re busy trying to keep the ship afloat in a storm (fine, TEMPEST, whatever) that has no foreseeable end. You are stressed and anxious, possibly financially insecure, and probably don’t have the support you would have if it were just a normal day. This whole thing is hella scary.
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and in anticipation of that, I thought I’d spend a little time exploring more of my current type and research musical theatre mom roles that I could someday play. The last time I was onstage, I was morphing out of the ingenue...
I just wanted to show some love to Wennie from DrawSoCute.com. She is an art teacher that specializes in kawaii style drawings.

This is starting to get old real quick. I look out the window and see the effin squirrels chasing each other around and I’ve never been so jealous of a rodent in my entire life. Those sunflower munching sons of bitches.
From Ingenue to MomBod...
