A Case for the Side Hustle

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Hi friends! I’m back into the daily grind after a weekend away in Minneapolis with some of my very favorite people. Time spent with my Beautycounter tribe always takes a little bit of time to process after it’s over because, let’s be honest, it’s strange. It’s strange that most of these amazing humans wouldn’t be in my life if it wasn’t for Beautycounter. As I processed what this work + team mean to me, I came back around again and … Read More

The Aftermath of Heart Surgery

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

I’ve been wanting to write about the topic of trauma for a while, but finding the words to describe my experience over the last six months hasn’t been easy. While we were still in Ann Arbor after Truett’s heart surgery, someone (I can’t remember who) sent me a message on Instagram telling me that it was OK not to be OK. At the time, I brushed it off. I was on a HIGH. I had seen God work in some … Read More

Sinus Surgery :: 2 1/2 Years Later

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

It’s been 2 1/2 years since I underwent sinus surgery to help with my recurrent sinus infections and sinus headaches. Some of you probably remember when I was contemplating getting the surgery – and how many days of the year I spent crippled with sinus infections – and when I got the surgery done a few months after Collins was born. I went back and forth trying to decide wether or not to get the surgery. Despite trying all the … Read More

Truett’s CHD Story (part 2)

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Writing out Truett’s story has been the hardest thing I’ve done in recent months. I look back at these photos and find it both incredibly therapeutic and helpful to process and entirely traumatic at the same time. While we were in these days I was so focused on being strong for Truett and surviving that I didn’t have time to actually FEEL the feelings associated with what I was going through. So, it’s taken me a little time to get … Read More

Truett’s CHD Story (Part 1)

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

First, I want to say that I’m writing this mainly for myself. As I’ve navigated the last two months post heart surgery and all that transpired with Truett, I’ve been blessed (or sometimes I think cursed) with a crystal clear memory of all that transpired. And before those memories fade, I want to make sure I have documented this tender, terrifying and miraculous time in our lives and in Truett’s life. Some may find this helpful, others may find it … Read More

My Maternity Favorite Favorites

In Uncategorized by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

Now that I’m nearing the end of this pregnancy, I thought it was time to do a recap of the items of clothing that I’ve worn and truly loved throughout the entire pregnancy.

So, with that said, here are the favorite favorites that have stood the test of the last 36 weeks! 1. Kindred … Read More
