Welcome to my blog! This is all about my life as a single mom to my beautiful daughter, Charlotte.
I’ve always wanted to be a mom. I knew from a very young age that I wanted a family. I never pictured doing it as a single mom, but life has a funny way of doing things the exact opposite from our plans.
I love being a mother. It’s a crazy, beautiful, funny, messy and silly experience. My daughter brings so much joy to my life and teaches me something new about myself every single day.
Being a single mom is tough, and so I started this blog to reach out to the single parenting community so that I could connect with other parents who are going through the same thing. What I have gotten back has been amazing. I have met so many wonderful single parents who share the ups and downs of single parenthood with me. I’ll never have enough words to express my gratitude for having these people in my life.
My favorite quote about being a single parent is:
“I didn’t set out to be a single parent. I set out to be the best parent I can be, and that hasn’t changed.”
That quote defines my life so perfectly. All I want is to raise a happy, kind, sweet and well-adjusted child who knows that families come in all shapes and sizes. It’s not about who makes up that family, but what makes up the family. And what makes up my family is lots and lots of LOVE!
My daughter and I live on the east coast of Canada. We aren’t big fans of winter, but since it’s winter more than six months of the year here, we try to make it fun. We’re always doing something silly and we both love to laugh. Humor is what makes life enjoyable, especially during those less-than-perfect moments!
When I’m not working or raising my daughter, I spend what little “free time” I have writing, taking pictures, and indulging in chocolate and wine 🙂
