As a self-proclaimed private person, writing a book about my own single mom journey was both challenging and cathartic. Beginning this new blog was a great way to continue that cathartic process.
The most awesome part about being a blogger is connecting with readers and fellow bloggers. I am finding that being open with the blogosphere is such an authentic process. So to further torture, um…I mean challenge myself, I thought I might share 20 Random facts about myself:
- I went to preschool in England and had an English Accent until I was 7. My cousins would pay me to talk in front of their friends and then break into fits of giggles.
- I’m most proud of being a mom-I know motherhood isn’t for everyone but for me it’s the best thing I have ever done. By the way, I have been a teen mom, a married mom, a step mom, a stay at home mom, a nursing mom, a working mom and now a mom blogger. Whew!
- I consider myself a minimalist but I have 27 tubes of MAC lipstick-I only wear 3!
