What is the inspiration behind your blog?
I always loved to write and keep an online diary. With a baby I can’t always write in a book, so I type on my phone or online journal. I began this blog when my son was born to originally write letters to him. It turned out to be a mom lifestyle blog.

My blog is about helping mothers simplify their motherhood journey. It is all about reaching out to mothers, connecting with them and sharing experiences. I would love to be a useful source to mothers in all stages of motherhood from pregnancy.

Why do you blog?
I blog to keep myself sane. I am an overthinker, with thoughts that keep me busy, they run in my head none stop. I get ideas at 3am in the morning when I can’t sleep. I love to write. I keep a gratitude journal to highlight one thing to be grateful for every day. I blog to keep my hands and head busy. I blog to share my experiences and hopefully help someone who knows less than I do in that certain area. I believe everyone has something valuable to say, why not say it in a blog?

What type of mom are you?
I am a loving, calm, all in, hands-on super mom who forgives herself when I make a mom fail and I cut myself some slack. No mom is perfect. I embrace the good and bad. I don’t know it all and I’m constantly researching and learning.
