I started this blog as a way to understand the monumental challenge becoming a mother at 43 would be. I was unprepared, overwhelmed and at the same time excited to join the ranks of mothers around the world. It’s been rewarding and at times tumultuous but I wouldn’t trade it for a thing.
In the few years I’ve been a mother I’ve grown as a writer. To even say ‘I am a writer’ is still uncomfortable at times because I never thought I could put a decent sentence together never mind enjoy writing. I’ve come to realize that I was a writer who didn’t write. When I look back on my life there has always been a small part of me that wished I could do it well but was never brave enough to take the leap.
But I’m here now. And I love it!
My vision for this blog is to continue sharing stories about mothering and how I/we, as women, raise ourselves along the way. You’ll find subject matter you can relate to, not only as a mother but as a woman, a friend and as a human.
The stories shared here have helped me connect more deeply to myself as a woman. It is through the writing I learn about who I am and what I yearn for. Love. Connection. Acceptance.
You’ve told me that this means something to you too. So I’d like to offer you the opportunity to share your stories.

Inspiration comes in many forms. Whether its fact-filled lessons learned, humour or the tough stuff that makes it hard to wake up in the mornings when you write from the heart you’ll grow into the human, not just the mother or the friend you know you can be.
It can be messy, this life, but without the mess we wouldn’t find joy. I suppose it’s a yin-yang thang.
Get inspired and help others to stand up and share the struggles, the pain and triumphs.
