Hello and Welcome!
Like many of you, my life was transformed when I became a mother. I was in my mid 30’s and gladly gave up a career I loved to raise our son. My journey so far has been amazing. (Although when I’m knee deep housework I don’t feel very amazing.)
I’ll admit upfront that I am not a professional writer and any real poet will cringe at my meager attempts. Writing for me began as a personal outlet, a way to fill the void my discarded career had left behind. These poems are the end result of the random, sleep-deprived ramblings contained in my notebooks. I am very fortunate to have a fabulous network of smart, independent, and funny mom-friends who encourage and support my writing. Without their companionship I would surely have drown amid a sea of laundry a long time ago. This blog is a tribute to them and our shared joys and frustrations of motherhood.
