I’m mom to 2 great kids, ages 14 and 13. I’ve been a single mom for 13 years, with no help, financial or otherwise, from their dad, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. I work full-time, and juggle the responsibilities (aka blessings) that come with raising kids, owning a home, and just being a productive member of society. I’m a Christ follower, lover of all things Disney, travel enthusiast, and avid reader. I have lived in the midwest my entire life, and have no plans to move, although I dream of living near a beach when I retire (at the age of 100 at the rate I’m going!). I have a background in finance and accounting, so I love budgets and organization. I hate spiders and flying insects with a passion, enjoy a good Netflix binge-watching session, and despise large crowds. I enjoy writing and encouraging other single moms along this journey. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for this blog, and hope you find some encouragement here!
