Hi and welcome! However you found your way here, thanks for taking the time to stop and read. I’m a new mom currently living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It’s been a crazy experience becoming a new mom during a pandemic! Or as I like to call it, quarantine and chill. With a new baby at home, we’ve been doing our best to isolate and use this time to bond with baby Ella, but I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy keeping her away from our friends and family. Fortunately, both of our moms (grandmas) have had the chance to meet her.
Still, we feel very lucky that all of this started after she was born. I mean the hospital went on lockdown and stopped allowing visitors the day we checked out. I know some people haven’t been so lucky. Friends of mine have had to cancel their baby shower or wear a mask while in labor and delivery.
Anyways, I want to take this time to share some things about myself. I’m a news junkie. I’ve seen every episode of Dateline, ever. I have a WILD black lab named Jasmine, and I love to travel, even if it’s just a short road trip to some Wisconsin town. What do all of these things have in common? I’m usually doing them with a coffee in hand.
I like to stay bust and trying to get everything done in a day requires a lot of caffeine, whether it’s my Starbucks caramel latte or my homemade French press dark roast with a little French vanilla creamer.
Before Ella was born I was a TV News reporter. My first passion is writing and storytelling. Although I’ve never done it in this fashion, I’m excited to use this blog to keep my creative juices flowing while I take some time away from a newsroom and enjoy my little babe.
Introduce yourself in the comments below or connect with me on Instagram. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
