I'm not sure if this blog post will cause more of an eye-rolling reaction OR a giggle.... But I'm moving onto a new blog. Yes, already. Yes, I realize that The Mommy Strike is a new'ish blog already. The truth is that I've been blogging for around 13 years now, and - in that time … Continue reading The End of This Blog
I did it, Ladies. I survived last weekend!!! It's not that anything on our schedule was bad by any means. In fact, on paper, they were all good things that I actually was excited about. There were just a LOT of big things on my plate all at once. Namely I was hosting my parent's … Continue reading Busy Weekend!

Even as a young teen, I lived by the mantra of if something scares me, it's probably something I'm meant to do. I've always stubbornly refused to let fear of the unknown - or fear of failure - hold me back, because I never want to look back and think "what if". I refuse to … Continue reading Warrior Mode!

It's kind of this perfect storm of swirling, mommy emotions. And I decided to blog a bit about these anxious feelings before … Continue reading Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow
Okay, I want to blog LOTS for the rest of summer if I can... So let's get caught up!

Happy August 1st, my friends!!! 🙂 I have to say, I have high expectations for this month. And I know what you're thinking... "Nicole, you're like a kid in a candy store - or an exhausted mom in a coffee shop - every single month anyway. Giddy... Full of expectation... Excited... What makes this month … Continue reading Hello, August!
North Conway is generally a New Hampshire town that we have to visit when we're up in the White's. It's more of the hustle and bustle of a mountain town, as apposed to quiet rivers and rocky trails. But that gives us the best of both worlds and is also where we tend to splurge … Continue reading North Conway – (New Hampshire Trip – Day 2)
I grew up frequently vacationing in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. And to this day, that area feels like my second home; and I go into this instant sense of calm and peace the minute mountains appear in the horizon. (It's a different sort of regrouping than the ocean is for me. The ocean … Continue reading Christmas in July! (New Hampshire – Day 1)
