As a newly minted mother suffering from both sleep deprivation and a case of the Baby Blues, my life made a 180-degree turn that took me from “Cool” to “Ma’am”.

The seeds to my blog were planted when I found myself Googling stuff like:

“How to be a good mom”

“How to get your newborn to sleep through the night”

“I’m a mom, now what?”

And even,

“Why am I going crazy?”

Instead of finding the answers to those questions, Google introduced me to a phenomenon called blogging, and more specifically, to a beast called the Mommy Blog. I entered a world filled with unicorns and rainbows, where the word psycho meant I was normal, and saying things like, “I want to drive off a cliff!” prompted other mothers to say, “Been there, done that” and “Preach!”

The more I read, the more my inner narcissist said, “I could do this. I COULD do this… I could DO this? I. Could. DO. THIS!” And so, “Beauty Filled Life” began in the wee hours of some random morning in 2009.

This is my personal blog. It is my way of sharing stories from my life (as beautiful, crazy, frustrating and fulfilling as it wants to be), in case someone out there needs encouragement or a laugh to keep from sticking their head in the oven.

Also, blogging is the equivalent of listening to myself talk. And I like that.

And for those of you ‘list people’ out there, here:
