I am a 35 year old Mama with two little girls and one little boy on the way. In this season of my life you will find me in my cozy and cluttered house, wearing jeans and a t-shirt, my hair up and my camera around my neck. I am a Pittsburgh native. I grew up swimming in the Ohio river, going to Kennywood and cheering for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
I have been writing and creating art for as long as I can remember. I have journals and journals full of my musings dated back as far as 6 years old. I went to Pitt for studio art and ended up as a family photographer running my own business.
My journey with mental illness started with panic attacks in my early 20’s and continues with Bipolar Disorder in my mid thirties.
I write and share on this blog with the goal of breaking the stigma around mental illness and reaching Moms who are suffering and hopefully pointing them in the direction of help.
