I was born in the San Fernando Valley in Southern California and moved to Western North Carolina as a shy teen. Now, I've relocated to Western New York with my husband, and our 12 month old son. I'm a twenty-something momma who honestly has no clue what I want to do in life at the moment. For the longest time that scared me but now I embrace it and want to document it here.
There are few things I am certain of: Mexican food reigns supreme, The Office is one of the best shows ever created, and there are fewer things more relaxing than a good book.
Yes, my blog is called honest momma, but I'd like to be clear: this is not a parenting blog, not really. Sure, there will be many posts dedicated to my life as a momma: the highs, the lows, and all the in-betweens. But honest momma wasn't created with the intent of staying on one subject. It was influenced by one way I identify myself, as a mom. I am, however, more than just a momma.
I strongly believe that women should never be placed into one category or boxed into one identity. Women should not solely focus on their children and lose sight of who they really are at their core; we are wild, funny, honest, creative beings that should be celebrated for those reasons and more. Society might tell you that ideal is selfish, but it's not. I am a person first and mom second. I am honest momma.
