3 Reasons This Busy Mom is Excited About The Super Bowl + An Awesome Giveaway

Can I be honest with you? I hate football. I do. My husband loves it, I support his love for it, and life in our home is pretty peaceful during football season, but I have no real interest in watching games or anything like that. I also don’t want my son playing football when he grows up because it scares the mess out of me. Yep, I am that mama. And I have no shame. But I have a confession to make. I actually do like Super Bowl Sunday. I know, I know.. the nerve. How dare I hate...

I Had to Make a Tough Decision… But I Hope You Stick Around

I wasn’t planning on making this my first post for the new year. Not at all. But after a lot of reflection, this was the only post I could bring myself to write. It was the only post that flowed naturally. That alone confirmed my decision. I love CandidBelle. I started this blog right before my daughter was born in 2012, and it’s been a labor of love. I’ve learned so much, and I have met so many amazing women. Thank you for hanging in there with me throughout this journey and for growing with me. It has been...

Year in Review + My Goals for 2017

I thought long and hard about writing this post. I asked myself if anyone would care about what happened in my life in 2016. Then I realized that this is about more than people caring.

I also realized that I get emails from women in this tribe who open up and share how much my words have inspired or encouraged them. I think these women, as well as others,...

I’m proud to be sharing this story with you as part of the Dove™ #LoveYourHair campaign. I hope it inspires you to think about the ways you can teach your little girl to love her hair and herself. I’ve had quite the journey with my hair. As a child, I remember flinching every time my mom or grandmother tried to style my hair. With a head full of thick, coily hair, taking out all the knots and giving me a hairstyle I loved was never easy. When I was about ten years old, my mom allowed me to get a relaxer...

Holiday Cruising With My Crew in the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica

This post is sponsored by FCA US; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own. Can I be honest with you? I’ve always had an issue with minivans. For years, it’s been a running joke in my family. My sister-in-law in all her minivan-loving glory has always joked that I will get one eventually. I have always insisted that it would never happen. Why? I wish I could tell you some profound reason for not wanting one, but I can’t. It’s simply because I felt like they weren’t stylish enough. What can I say; growing up in New...
