We've all heard about women that seem to enter motherhood without a hitch; they bring a child into the world and carry on with business as usual. I, however, was not one of those women. In my experience, becoming a mother was epic-it changed my life in every way, especially at first.

I've had the honor of stumbling through the imperfect process of learning how to grow and raise a baby. Being a mom is the hardest, as well as the most wonderful job I've ever had. The life of a new mom is riddled with paradoxes; for example, the happiest days and the hardest days are often the same days.

This is not a guidebook. These pages are filled with honesty, not advice. I openly share my experiences because I believe there's no such thing as TMI, truth is invaluable, and life lessons can be extracted from most unexpected spaces.

These pages include all things pregnancy, postpartum, and early motherhood-the adorable, raw, and taboo. Curl up in camaraderie. And know that as you move through this momentous journey, you are not alone.
