[Featured On] The Anaheim Moms Blog

Thursday, May 5, 2016

I mentioned on Instagram the other day that I recently became a contributor on the Anaheim Moms Blog. I plan to share a little bit more about that in a future post, but I wanted to share with you today that my very first post is live on their blog today!

 Here is a little sneak peek.


"... The days, weeks, and months went by again and we found out we were expecting a baby! SUCH A JOYOUS TIME and yet a piece of me couldn’t be 100% happy. I was about to become a mom and I didn’t have a mom to share that joy with. By now, my mom had passed away almost eight years prior. Of course I miss her and think about her daily, but it was easier. I had accepted what happened and moved on. But then things in your life happen and you’re brought right back to that moment one more time.

Being a mom is one of the BEST things that has EVER happened to me. I never knew as much joy as I did when I held my son in my arms for the very first time. I had known him for a mere two minutes and it felt like a lifetime. That moment, that day, I couldn’t physically share with my mom, but I know she was there. I know she got to experience the joy of her first grandchild being born...."
