About Me

Let's Get Acquainted

Me.  Where to even start?  I had my first and only child at the age of 35years old . Back then I felt old starting a family with my husband.  I never did have an urge to have a baby but once my daughter came into this world everything changed.  She is our everything.  

I feel like any mama or parent can relate the truth of being a first-time mama.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could allow myself to be vulnerable to share some of my "mama experiences" with others.  In the end, I find unleashing my truth to be calming and after each reveal of my truth, I feel a little lighter.  I am able to breathe.  I am able to exhale. 

I actually started my first blog in 2017 as someting to do.  I realized I enjoyed the connections I was making online and enjoyed just really telling things how they were.  Once I unleashed, it was hard to stop.

I am a wife, a mama to a daughter who is 6 years old, a mama to my four-legged fur baby.  He is the cutest labradoodle.  I consider myself a career mom trying to balance work & home life in my forties.  Everyday I am grateful, yet every day feels like a struggle too. 

I enjoy taking photos of my relationship with my daughter.  I am mama who is one and done.  Documenting every moment is important to me.  I cherish the time I have with my family. 

My intention of this blog is to share some of the first years of being a mama.  It was a hard first few years.  I was in denial.  My marriage sufferred, my career suffered and I pretended that everything was under control.  I was in denial about post partum depression and having anxiety to the point that I felt I would be having a heart attack.

Now a couple of years has passed and there are much more wins than losses. I feel more like a super mom than a failure. 

Thanks for reading my blog.  xoxo "Mama Martin"
