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!

We got the beat

Today we heard Little Sears's heart beat for the first time. It was as sweet and emotional for me as it was when we first heard Roscoe's.

It took our midwife almost two minutes to find it, and we waited anxiously while she searched. Then, an unmistakable little gallop in the 150's came through and I couldn't help it: the tears just welled up.

I assumed that a second pregnancy would be old hat. That there might not be time (or desire) to dwell and obsess over the details, and that the little things might not bring as much joy as they did the first time. Not true!

And I'm glad that it's so.


  1. I whole heartedly agree! Nothing about growing a new baby get's is just as amazing and wonderful the second time as it was the first! Even more so because now you know first hand how much love you will have for this little being the second he or she is placed in your arms (and before!).

  2. Ohh.. I love hearing this! We are going to be trying for #2 pretty soon and it is a slight 'worry' of mine how the second pregnancy will go.. wondering if it will be as exciting as the first.. glad to hear it is!

  3. Yay! Happy news. And I'm glad you are celebrating all the moments with as much joy as you did the first time around.
