Welcome to The United State of US! My name is Erin, and I’m a mother, teacher, wife, sister, daughter, and LOVER of humans. I have spent much of my life in a schools, interacting with brave humans, just trying to find their way. I think of my experiences with those people, as little gifts that gave me a burning desire to truly, honestly and unapologetically know myself, and everyone I come into contact with.

On this site you can always count on honest conversation about motherhood, married life, finding space to exist in a noisy world, and how I find my way to healthy living. You will meet my family and friends, and have an opportunity to discover my imperfect, slightly awkward, but fresh perspective on things that so many of us experience.

Thanks for being with me, while I finish the job of raising myself.

Three reasons today makes me happy:- tomorrow, a new episode on the podcast is dropping- and it’s SO DANG GOOD. It’s an episode with @newshannonjkc and she is the most kind, generous, and relatable soul. Every once in a while, we get to meet someone that reminds us that regardless of who you are- famous, or just the girl next door- we are all just people, doing our best. And if we are lucky, we will meet other incredible people that are willing to honestly talk about why going through the hard stuff is totally worth what is waiting on the other side. Shannon, and her book All is Not Lost does that. I can’t wait for you to hear her, and you even get a glimpse of her adorable and talented husband, @nestorcarbonell . Talk about a power couple ❤️. We talk about it all- you can’t miss it. - On a less serious note- I dried and straightened my hair and put on make-up. It’s been a minute and I am reminded why it’s good to remember what that feels like. Maybe I’ll do it more…and maybe I won’t 🤣. Disclaimer: it rained… so don’t judge the mess in the pic 🙋🏻‍♀️. - Finally- people are good. I went to an event for the @fdlawomensfund today, and got the pleasure of seeing an old friend. @meghan_leatherman you are a beautiful soul. Thank you for the gift of connection, today. It just felt good to look around and see so many women- yourself included- that are just out in the world being good people, and raising the next generation of littles that will do the same. Moral of the story: listen to the podcast tomorrow (link in bio), take care of yourself, and trust that there are such good people in this world. Thanks for listening. I hope you found your happy place, today, too. Want to share? I’d love to hear it. Tag a friend, too. ❤️#family #happy #mom #motherhood #mama #joy #lifeisgood #podcast #lost #podcastersofinstagram #podcasts #blogger #blog #bloggerstyle #bloggersofinstagram #summer #women #womenempowerment #womensupportingwomen #womeninbusiness #womenempoweringwomen #womeninspiringwomen #us ...
