    Breastfeeding Journey 3-6 Months [Update]

    In this breastfeeding update, I’m writing about the breastfeeding experience during the age of three to six months old. I want to go into the bad parts, and then celebrate the good parts in regards to breastfeeding a baby. How has the adjustment been to a child in our lives for over six months now? And how I feel about continue breastfeeding until my baby is two years old. I’ll start by summarizing what I have learned so far. Breastfeeding is hard. && I love breastfeeding.   That about sums it up. No joke. There’s way TOO MUCH to learn about. Here are some topics you should really get familiar…

    Choosing To Remain In Love

    I’m going to take a shot here and admit what I truly think is a key factor to being in a happy,  long-term relationship with any partner. Put simply, I believe that love is a choice and that you must consciously choose to remain in love.   That’s right, you read correctly. You choose to remain in love, each and every day.   There’s something to be said about your brain when you are in love.

You also may experience pleasant emotions by being near or with…
