Welcome to my blog!
In 2011, I started this blog, originally known as “Those Young Moms” with my good friend Stephanie. We enjoyed a year and a half of blogging together, when in late 2013 Stephanie chose to focus solely on her schooling, career and family life. She helped me build this site and great resource, and I will forever be grateful for that! I’m proud to be taking the reigns of our blog and hopefully will watch it grow even more.
I became a mother for the first time in 2008. I was scared, excited, elated, and terrified all at once. I was 21 — young, and unsure of my new role as a mother. I wish I had had a resource that I could identify with, that provided me with mainstream advice but also delved into alternate motherhood and parenting practices that I might not have thought to read more about. Through my own parenting trial and error, I’ve gained knowledge and experience that has been essential to my growth as a mother, and as a person. Through this blog, I want to connect with other mothers and support each other through all of the downright-crappy-days and the pretty-awesome-I-love-these-little-people days. And I’ll throw in a craft tutorial here and there. I love crafts. Also food. Food will be featured a lot on here.
This blog will reflect my daily life as a young mother of two. The struggles, the triumphs, and everything in between. This page is about reaching out to moms of all ages and parenting stages to build a community of moms who truly support each other. This page is about laughing, crying, and stumbling through motherhood as unscathed as possible.
So come put your feet up, grab some tea/coffee/wine, and enjoy!
