I’m Kristin, a mother to my beautiful 2-year-old daughter Diana, and wife to my husband of 4 years, Brian. I’m an avid sports fan, horror movie aficionado, and cookie connoisseur.
I’ve been writing professionally for well over 10 years now, but I finally decided it was time for me to be my own boss.
However, I didn’t want to start just any old blog. I wanted it to mean something, I wanted it to be an extension of myself.
And…Journey Into Motherhood was born!
But here’s WHY this blog is so important to me…..
I grew up, unfortunately, with a physically and emotionally abusive mother. My childhood was tainted by the fear, sadness, and pain of it all.
I promised that if I ever was fortunate enough to be blessed with a child of my own, I would do everything in my power to make sure that they would never have to feel and endure what I did.
I became a mother to my beautiful daughter in 2018, and while the love and promise was there, I did realize that not having a mother to look up to did pose some challenges.
I was left to learn things about pregnancy and parenting on my own.
It hasn’t been an easy road, but anything worthwhile rarely is.
And it dawned on me. I figured I can’t possibly be the only mom in this situation. And that’s when I began to write down things I’ve learned along the way.
This blog is a way for me to share them all with you! Whether you had a similar childhood experience or you don’t have a strong support system (or even if you do!), I hope that you’ll be able to find this blog helpful to you in someway.
Motherhood is hard, demanding, and sometimes lonely. But it’s one of the best things you’ll ever do and experience.
I’m with you on your journey to motherhood, and I’m glad you’re on mine.
We got this mommas!
