Does this sound like you? You’re dreading the season ahead. The juggling required. The ever shifting schedule. The extra effort necessary to get everybody’s stuff taken care of. The feeling that this extra effort always seems to fall to you.
You’re doing it all, but feel like you do none of it well. You’re tired, tense, and short tempered. Putting your needs first is the last thing you do, but if you don’t get a break soon you’re gonna lose it. The occasional night out with friends is nice, but it doesn’t change anything, really.
You feel a crash coming. You don’t want to take your stress out on your kids. This is not the mom you want to be.
What you need most is a break. A chance to step back and consider new approach. A strategy for dealing with your day to day responsibilities differently. Tools that fit into your real life.

“[This retreat] was a beautiful slow down…Hearing other mamas in various stages of parenthood was a great reminder that the experience is indeed universal in that we love, hurt, and want the best for our families all while we work every day to be our best selves. The struggle is real AND you all helped me remember the abundance of this experience.” – mom of two
