My journey through Granulomatous Mastitis

February 14, 2020 I’ve been hesitant to share this for a few reasons, but it’s such a huge part of my story, and writing is therapeutic for me. Also, if you Google this topic, you won't find much besides besides medical journals.…

Setting healthy boundaries with toddlers

This one little statement is so simple (no pun intended—Simply@ Lemonade 😉), but so HUGE! After reading an article about setting boundaries with children, Lebrean and I started being very intentional about it with Davis. A lot of my stress as a mom comes from from feeling like I have to get everything done and…

What Am I Proud Of?

The principal at Hollis opened last week’s Leadership Team meeting by prompting us to answer the question, “What are you proud of?” I had arrived really early that morning, when the building was very quiet, and as I walked around, I took some moments to take it all in.

I had to step away

Today, I simply had to step away from my work, and it was the best decision I could have made for my mental health. I was so focused and determined to find a solution to an issue, and like I often tend to do, I spent way too much time on it, so much so…

But when I want my photos to have a little extra "umph" (depending…

Hollis is such a phenomenal place, and I'm beyond thrilled…

Gotta Keep It Green in Marketing & Communication

I FINALLY got around to retaking the photo for my website header last week, and it's something I should never have had to do in the first place. I broke one of the basic rules of design/marketing/communication: Whenever possible, make content "evergreen"! Below is the former photo I used for my header. See the error?…

Some Brands Are Just Plain Fun

During the past few weeks, I've done a lot of marketing for Kool Pix ATL. In the interest of full disclosure, it's my family's business. We are a professional full-service photo booth company, and we have been absolutely blown away by how much we've been working…
