Hi! I'm Kristi, a woman just trying to figure out marriage, motherhood, and work.
I’ve never been good at talking about myself so here goes nothing…
My name is Kristi, and I am a Mom, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Marketing Professional and now attempting to be a blogger! I originally started this blog as a way to keep in touch with my friends and family. My husband and I were living in New York when we found out we were pregnant. As a native Californian (Northern California!) I felt so far away and disconnected from my family. So, I started the blog as a way to keep in touch and include them on my pregnancy journey!
Becoming a Mom has been the greatest accomplishment of my life. But, this accomplishment doesn’t come without its challenges. During my new Mom journey, I found that the trials and tribulations, the extremity of the sleepless nights and all the emotions of Motherhood were not spoken about, at least not in depth. I found myself struggling to manage my career, my marriage, my child, and my relationships while keep my own sense of identify and interests. Through that struggle, I found this blog to be much more therapeutic for me, acting as my therapist, my confidant, and a way for me to keep a creative spark that had dimmed in other aspects of my life.
I’m no “Expert” nor do I have any significant education or training on the topics I discuss here. It is simply a repository of my day to day life, what I found works for me and my family. In speaking out about my life and Motherhood journey I hope to inspire other Moms trying to manage it all, and at the very least remind them they are not alone.
