OK, Now What?!

Okay, so…this is my first-ever blog and my first-ever blog post. What now? Well, I am still not quite sure what I want to say yet exactly. But I will tell you this: I am not a fan of fakeness (is that a word?) and I generally tell it like it is. I wear my heart on my sleeve and I am a big fan of living life authentically.

About Me: I am a 30-something, first-time mama to an amazing, hilarious, spunky, 3 year old little man named Hunter & wife to an equally amazing, beyond patient & supportive husband named James.  Does that mean everything I write about will be all butterflies & rainbows? Nope. Not a chance.  As grateful as I am to be where I am today (happy, still sane, still married & still breathing), life isn’t perfect, nor has it ever been.  Suffering from infertility and having Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (“PCOS”) since I was 16 has been a nightmare.  An experience I would not wish upon my worst enemy. It was a tremendous, 5 year struggle to get pregnant but then by some divine intervention, we got our miracle baby.

So will this blog be all about babies and the struggle to have them? Nope. Wrong again. I am not sure what it will be but I have a lot more to write about than just that. I am not “just a mom” and although a lot of my thoughts relate back to being one, I certainly have more to talk about that that.

If I haven’t scared you off yet, take a peek at some pieces I’ve written recently (i.e. my thoughts & feelings spewed out on paper (well, screen) for the whole world to read).  These are two of my first ever pieces that I wrote and which then ended up being featured on some amazing sites such as the Good Mother Project, Mamalode and sassy, widely-popular Scary Mommy.  Check ’em out below!
