I am creative and emotional stay-at-home mom of three incredibly energetic, spirited, smart, and happy kids.  I love cooking, knitting, reading, and seeking inspiration in everything I see.  I often feel that coffee sustains me, and I could live off of Thai food if the opportunity arose 😉  Read more

My name is Mandy and I gave birth to my first child summer of ’15. River Devere entered our hearts the day before fourth of July. He is definitely our little fire cracker. It was a huge surprise considering he wasn’t supposed to make his grand entrance until August 17th! Read more

There are the common ones people do mention like “You’d better rest now, as you will never sleep again” as well as the “bladder control issues” that may or may not ensue. Well we came up with 12 things that aren’t spoken about at formal dinner parties. Readers beware… This may be a bit graphic.

Who are you?

I strive to be a good wife, momma, friend, and member of society, but acknowledge that I am not perfect and neither is the rest of the world. I try my best and remember to breathe deep along the way. My husband and I have been married since 2000 and he is everything I ever wanted in a partner. We are best friends and soul mates, which I know sounds all too clique, but if you know us you know it is true. Together we have two bambinas who make our family happily complete & keep us on our toes with their antics and unbridled creativity and humor. Outside of family, placenta encapsulation is my passion and I consider myself so lucky to be able to serve the local greater Sacramento, CA area community as ‘The Placenta Mom’.
