As I stood in line at our local grocery store waiting to check out, I found myself between two very odd realities. One was the beautiful face of Oprah on the latest People magazine cover with the words “The 5 Moments That Changed My Life”. In this article, she talks about her choice to never […]

Child free living has its ups and downs. Parents too experience lots of curve balls and deal with different things every day when it comes to their kids. Maybe, our lives are just a little bit different. We choose a different path with different types of experiences. But, in the end, we are all humans and we are living in the same environments.
This blog is aimed at dispelling myths about the child free lifestyle, sharing positive outlooks on being childless voluntarily and helping people feel confident in their decisions. The most important thing a person can do is take time to make choices confidently. Preparedness is a topic we like to discuss on this blog. Whether you’re considering a child free lifestyle or you’re considering parenthood, there is a lot to weigh and a lot to figure out.
Need help navigating the lifestyle? Want a different kind of perspective. This section of our blogs will help guide you and hopefully open up your mind to a new way of thinking. Living without children is a little bit different. But, a lot of the principles and the musings we share can related to anyone with or without children. Dive in and start exploring what living life as a child free couple really is like.
Let’s break free from the idea that the word woman is synonymous with the word mother. Can we finally please teach children that just because girls were born with the instruments to give birth, they don’t have to give birth? “Pro-Choice” apparently only applies to life or death. Somehow, we neglect to consider if someone […]
There is a big gap out there in the world people. Where are all the conversations around child free and DINK life? Honestly, it has been tough searching for child free blogs to follow and maybe it’s because not enough people are talking about it or we just haven’t crossed paths. To help you on […]
This is going to sound a little bit harsh, but if parenting is hard and it sounds like too much for you, then it probably is not for you. Every morning, I listen to the Wall Street Journal Tech News Briefing podcast. This week, one of the topics was how voice assistants are now helping […]
A child free vacation is never something we plan for because well, we don’t have kids. It’s not something we really think about when we’re thinking about our getaways. But, it can make a big difference. Does the idea of kicking your feet up in a hammock and listening to the waves crash close by […]
This is a difficult conversation to have with anyone. When I first started writing this blog post, I had to delete the first paragraph probably 20 times. Why? The difference between someone with a child and someone without a child, as it relates to work, isn’t much. But, I will admit there are some key […]
Childless – to be without child.* Hm. As I was researching this week, I came upon the word childless and it really got me thinking… WTF! Being a child free by choice blogger has its perks. I get to talk to some pretty incredible people every day (PS. all people are incredible to me) about […]
Welcome to 2019! This is our first blog of the new year and just like everyone else and their mama, we are focused on healthy living goals. Although we have been notorious gym goers for about 10 years, we slow down with the holidays. We’re currently on carb and sugar overload. Our habits are worse […]
About four weeks ago, I noticed my hair was starting to break. It hurt me to the soul. I began to notice a lot of small hairs sticking up around the crown of my head and after showering, they didn’t really go down. Then, it got even scarier when I was washing my hair and […]
Oftentimes, I wonder what it would be like if I already had children. At my age, my mother had a four-year-old and was working in education. The cliche world we live in would have said that she “had it all.” What type of total mind-f**k is that?! She literally had a lot on her hands, […]
