My mom bun. Yes, it's messy. Yes, it's not perfect. Yes, I have kids. The mom bun represents some great and not so great things about motherhood. I grew up dancing ballet, tap, jazz, and every type of dance. In...
With all that has come in this very, very interesting year we call 2020, it's been a stressful one, to say the least. Bringing a new baby into this world, having a major change in my job, and just...
