I am a sort of rad, mostly mediocre, smart mouth with an affinity for writing through my emotions. I am a mama to 4 beautiful souls. Rowan (8), Sloan (forever 7mo), Phoenix (3) and Valorie (2). My husband Justin and I have been married for 6 years, and together for more than 10. Three of our children walk the journey of life with us here on earth, while one lives on in our memories.
We lost our second child, our son Sloan, unexpectedly to SIDS in 2017. Since his death, I have focused on raising awareness about infant sleep safety, child loss, grief and bereavement, and mental health. My entire online presence is based in being fully transparent about life, loss, parenthood, and marriage. I try my best to bring bereaved motherhood to the forefront of discussion, giving grief and its necessary honesty a place in a world that too often quiets the messiness of real life.
So, when you find a moment, grab a cozy spot to sit, and some coffee, and get ready to read your way through my authentic motherhood.
