Starting the New Year early!!!

Welcome to my blog!!!! I am so excited to be starting this adventure. This is supposed to be one of my (many) resolutions for the new year, but I figured now is the perfect time to begin. Why wait for January 1st?

This blog is going to focus on who we are as women. Too many times my identity gets wrapped up in being my daughter’s mother. Please understand, I’m not complaining. That little girl changed my life and led me down the best possible path. But, I’d kind of like to have an identity again, too.

Topics will include budgets, cooking, parenting, finding time for you, date nights, how to do it as a single parent (I’m not there anymore, but I did it for 4 1/2 years, and you can too), along with anything else that happens to come up. I’ll try my best to be funny, upload posts consistently, and stick to subjects you’re interested in.  Please feel free to leave suggestions and comments regarding posts.  I can’t improve without feedback.

Enough about the blog, here’s a little about me.  I was born and raised along the Jersey shore. I was on my own at 18 and worked for everything that I have. At 28, I had my daughter and, knowing I was going to be a single mom, moved to western PA to be closer to my mom.  Four years later, I met the love of my life. We were just married this past September and we’re expecting our first baby together in May. I work part time at a job that I’m pretty great at but don’t love and I’m always looking to try new fields of expertise and learn new things.

The goal is to post every single day for the year. Please keep in mind, we’re expecting baby #2, so I may falter on that slightly, but that’s the goal.

Here’s to a happy, healthy, and lucrative 2016 for all of us!  Thank you for reading.

I am a wife, mom of 1 1/2 (it'll officially be 2 in May), part time waitress, avid reader, and an unpaid comedian, chauffeur, cook, maid, therapist, and cuddler. I love my family more than anything and as scared as I am to start over on this whole mom gig, I'm so excited to do it again.
