I'm pretty excited about today!
Why? You may ask.
Well, because I'm making my guest blogger debut over at Merelymothers.
I've been totally loving having this outlet to pour my heart into. It's helped me process, helped me stay honest with myself, motivated me to keep training and generated a fair amount of donations for breast cancer research. So when the opportunity to share my heart with another audience came I was both excited and kind of petrified.
It's pretty safe here. Most the folks that read my blog know me. They send encouraging words or at least bite their tongue when they don't agree with me. Venturing out into the bigger blogging world is a little bit scary. Kind of like starting a new job or going to a new school. Not knowing if anyone is going to like you or want to sit with you at lunch or pick you for their kick ball team. But most good things come when you stretch outside your comfort zone. So stretch I will.
Merelymothers was created by a group of stay at home mom's as a place to share their thoughts and recommendations and support to other mom's. One of the founding members, Dawn, has been a friend of Matt and mine for a long time and I've loved watching her little girl grow!
While I am not a stay at home mom, I think there are so many things that connect us as mothers regardless of your status as a domestic goddess or working warrior. We face many of the same challenges, conquer the same obstacles, celebrate the same triumphs. We are all MOMs! And this sisterhood of motherhood and womanhood is just what I am celebrating today over at Merelymothers. So head on over there and check it out.
