Motherhood and my children have been the most inspiring thing that has happened to me, and it motivated me to write; about them, about us, about our days together – Our Everydays.
I cannot believe it has been a year since I posted my first words on this blog. And what a wonderful journey of creativity, self-growth and community it has become
Motherhood ignited a confidence in me to explore the love I’ve always had for storytelling, and so I began to write. This space not only allowed me to be creative, and to learn and grow in my craft, but it introduced me to so many other amazing women and mothers who were also telling their stories.
I’ve said this before, but I really believe storytelling is the way we connect and relate as human beings. In motherhood, especially, telling our stories allow us to relate, to feel connected, and most of all, to know we’re not alone.
This journey also introduced me to so many amazing women in the community who I am happy to now call friends. I became an Alberta Mamas contributor, led a workshop for Box Social Events, wrote a piece for Yeg Inspired Magazine, collaborated with some amazing mom bosses and makers ( Mz McMully in the Moment , Live it All In , SIBkids, Kissable Lips Yeg, From Harper and Stella & Dot by Isabel Fry ) for a Gift Giving Week Giveaway last December, and have just met so many wonderful human beings along the way.

And a few of the posts to come later this year are:

I am extremely humbled and grateful to each and everyone of you who have taken the time to read my posts, to share a comment, to send me a message, or simply connect.
I am excited to continue fostering this space, to continue to grow and learn with it, and look forward to what it will bring.
Thank YOU so so much for following along in this journey,
