I’m Whitney- an LA-transplant from the Pacific Northwest trying to navigate motherhood and my career as brand strategy consultant. When I found out I was pregnant a few years ago, I started looking for stories that felt honest and real but most of what I was finding was polished and felt inauthentic. I didn’t see myself reflected in what I was finding on Instagram or blogs; everyone made each step of pregnancy and new motherhood look like a sepia-toned dream, whereas my experience felt… less than.
The more I shared, the more conversations I engaged in where I realized there were others like me, looking to approach motherhood in a different way. Being a mom didn’t complete me- it’s just one of the many facets of my life. I’m an entrepreneur, a connector, a friend, a foodie, and more. I don’t have it all figured out and this blog is not the answer to how to live your best life. It’s a place for me to share my experiences without a filter and to create a space for honest (and hopefully inspiring) conversations.
I hope you connect with it in some small way.
