When you become a mom life changes, love changes, you change. And it is from that perspective, as a mom and woman, that I write. About traveling not so light as a womom, literally and figuratively.

I don’t have a history as a writer. I studied photography and currently work as a Digital Designer. I have a beautifully rebellious son. My home is a tiny flat in busy London that I share with the superhero father of this little monkey, one of our friends who is an admirable single mom and her very young baby boy. It’s a “lively home”, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Now why do I start this blog? Very simple. I love writing. I love sharing. I read a lot of articles as a mom. Google has been my best friend ever since that little man was born. A lot of women out there helped me with their experiences when I was tired, sad or insecure. So I want to return the favour! And I want to encourage you as well to ‘share’. You can comment on one of my articles, write your own or just share experiences with a friend over a nice cup of hot chocolate. Sharing is caring!
