Hey!

Mama Love Diaries is now Simply Love Jade. From now on I will be posting from that site. I am so sorry it took me so long to alert you of the news, but I just regained access back to my site! It has been crazy! When Bluehost server went down, so did my site and two weeks later, I now have access again.

If you can do me a HUGE favor, can you make sure you are following me on these social media outlets. I do not want you to miss out on anything. Thank you so much for following along and I promise my blogging slump days will end. My new site is everything I could have imagined and more.

Ten Things I Learned the First Year as a Parent

Well, peeps. It is official. I have now been a parent for an entire year. I still cannot believe it. I still remember my water breaking as I was getting ready to head out to the hospital, smiling in my hospital bed because unbeknownst to me I was still not in true labor yet and holding my beautiful baby boy. Time sure does fly, but all the memories will be in my heart forever. Here are things I learned the first year as a parent.

What is an Unfulfilled Life?

This is a question that has haunted me since I was 16 years old and was diagnosed with a neurological movement disorder. I was told by many doctors that my dreams would be put on hold and achieving them would be an impossibility. This hurt the most. A doctor, to me, is supposed to give you hope. They are supposed to keep trying every avenue they can and to tell someone that success is an option was the lowest of all points in my life so far.

Five on Friday:: Spring Break

five on friday

I am linking up with these lovely ladies again for Five on Friday. Let me say this week was AWESOME! It was Spring Break and usually I go back home, Corpus Christi, TX,  for for Spring Break, but this year I decided to stay here in Houston because I wanted to enjoy my home for once during a break instead of going somewhere. Let me tell you, packing with a baby is much harder than just packing for yourself. Afterwards, you need a vacation from the vacation. Here are my top five moments of my Spring Break with my Dylan.

The Good, Bad and Ugly Truths About Pregnancy Tests

Sometime in mid-April my blog will be making BIG changes. Everywhere from a new name to a brand new design. I am ending Mama Love Diaries with my series, What I Learned My First Year As a Mom. The series will end on Dylan’s birthday and then everything will be loaded up for my new and improved blog, Simply Love Jade. I am super excited about the changes that are coming and the new blog will be a better reflection of who I am because I am not just a mom. I serve other roles that I want to share.
