I am proud of many things in life, but nothing beats being a mother. As a single teenage mom I had to learn many lessons early on about responsibility, discipline, and sacrifice. Parenthood did not come with a manual and sometimes I just don’t have all the answers, but I'm always open to sharing the lessons I've learned along the way! From fun kid friendly recipes, cool places we visit, to how we deal with big issues- follow along as I share my parenting journey.
Life is full of ups and downs. I believe that the best way to manage what life throws at you is by understanding yourself, acknowledging your purpose, and remaining positive.

Here you will find articles about various topics; all which I hope will inspire my readers in some way.
