The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

mmmm beer ...

On Sunday we drove to Fredericksburg in order to (finally) celebrate Jon's graduation over Sunday brunch.

Capital Alehouse, a Richmond favorite known for its "$1 burger night", recently opened Downtown and we thought M & J would enjoy trying a new place. There's a lot we miss about Richmond so it's cool that a little piece of it has moved in just South of us.

The beer list is daunting, with over 60 beers on tap alone. Feeling a little overwhelmed, we relied solely on our server's suggestions. Unfortunately, he later confessed that a competition was in full swing: the server to sell the largest quantity of a particular beer with a crazy name that I can't remember, wins an all expenses paid trip to the brewery. Of course, our server shared his intentions to win and then a clever plan to sell the prize, only AFTER he popped the top off the beer he'd pushed.

Since I'm breastfeeding, I'm not really drinking, and I've never enjoyed the taste of beer despite an honest interest. Having consumed virtually no alcohol since Roscoe was born, and not more than a sip or two during the 10 months preceding, I was feeling adventurous. With so many beers to choose from I was set on finding "my" beer.

It's a Lambic. Fruity & refreshing, perfect for these hot and humid Summer days. It comes in what looks like a mini wine bottle, and it even has a cork. I had the apple variety (Yum!), but it comes in many other fruit flavors. At $13.50 a bottle, I had only one.

(Baby Roscoe is under the nursing cover, of course!)
