First Post Down

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.
