An oil loving, photographer attempting, coffee drinking, Oregon raised, sensitive soul, who is trying her best at being honest. Motherhood and balance are two of the hardest things I’ve ever gone through. My life isn’t put together, it’s real.

I’m a 27-year-old mother of 2 boys. Zion, my first born. He strives for everyone’s love, is just as sensitive as his Mommy and will follow his Daddy anywhere. His younger brother, Apollo, is more like his Daddy but will (hopefully) always be a Mommys boy.

Their dad has been my only true love for the last (going on) 10 years. He’s everything I’m not; athletic, calm, cool, collected.

He’s my rock.

Writing has been something I’ve had dreams of doing for years and have been too scared. This is done with hope of sharing with other women/moms that life isn’t always a pretty picture. I applaud the mothers who seem to have it all together. But I’ve put too much pressure on myself in the past for not being the “perfect ___________.” Through this, I hope to connect with many more people who share the struggles.
