I’ve been sitting here with my fingers on the keys of my keyboard for at least 30 minutes trying to decide what to write as my first blog post. I feel like the first one has to be the hardest, right? Should I like…introduce myself or something?
Don’t get me wrong, I have millions of ideas for things I want to share on my blog. But somehow the first post is making me a nervous wreck! Probably because I started this same blog last year and posted 5 posts and stopped. I freaked out. I don’t think I was really prepared to put myself out there yet. Plus, I got promoted at my job and started focusing so much on work that I couldn’t focus on anything else. It paid off eventually but I have been kicking myself for letting my blog go. I could have been a year into it by now.
But I’m not gonna focus on the woulda shoulda couldas because that doesn’t fix anything.
So, here’s a few things about me and what you can expect on my blog moving forward!
Where was I born?
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Apparently this is rare now because most people living in Atlanta are “transplants”.
What do I do for a living?
I currently work as a Software Product Manager.
What is my family life like?
I am a divorced mom. I have two beautiful little girls. They are 8 and 5 years old. You’ll probably be seeing and hearing a lot about them! I also have an awesome boyfriend named Ben and a sweet American Staffordshire Terrier named Junior.
What do I want to share on my blog?
SO MUCH! I have been a single, working mother for about five years now (although I have had Ben for two and a half of those) and some days I have no idea how I survived. I have had so many days that I wish I could figure out how people are doing it so flawlessly. I think I’ve finally realized that th
ey’re not. We’re all failing forward everyday and that’s okay! It’s awesome actually. Let’s all fail forward together and look cute doing it! I love fashion, beauty, makeup, skincare, food, and Netflix. Let’s talk about it all!
Okay. I think that answers most of the importan
t questions for now. Phew! First post down.
That wasn’t so bad.
