Out of the Muck

Parenting is hard. Adulting is hard. Life is hard. Sometimes I feel a little trapped by all the stuff. This year I am trying to stay in the present moment so I can meet each situation with love, compassion and gratitude. (At least that is what I am telling myself today - if I had written this post a few days ago I think it would be a much different tone. Yikes!) To mentally prepare myself, I sit in stillness, come back to my breath, and think of what helps me move through a given moment instead of...

Happy New Year! I have had a busy year so far. I have been traveling and playing and napping. Because what could be better than snuggling with my sweet new rainbow squishy niece?!?

2015 was a year of healing for me. I have spent more time alone, more time away, and while I fought off the pangs of guilt along the way, I am a much better person for it. I just took two weeks off and I can't wait to get back to work! I have filled myself up and I am ready to help fill others (more...

New Office

I often wonder why it takes me so long to do things. And then there are moments like the one pictured here, and I think, oh, yeah, that's right. I work at my house.

First Day of School

First day of school! First day of school! I just dropped my kids off for their first day of school! I began the day jumping out of bed - it's the first day of school! - before both my kids were even awake. That may not mean a whole lot to some of you early risers, but it is a rare occurrence in our house. I am not a morning person. I regularly sleep in/stay in bed well past everyone else in my family. Kids are trained - in the morning they get dad - but...

On Your Side

By Carly Marks

Who am I? This not an existential essay, so I will share what pertains to my work with Mamas & Milk. I am a mother of 2 delightful little girls, a Navy wife, a nurse who practices and teaches Yoga, and a Lactavist who holds the credential IBCLC. I am someone living with Multiple Sclerosis who employs plasma Apheresis (not well-documented for treatment of MS, I might add) and Pharmaceuticals to manage my disease and symptoms, but nothing can replace my Yoga (more on my Yoga practice, later). The evolution of this management has taught me...
