Love, Love, Love, Love, Love

Happy Valentine’s day “to be” everyone.  (Tommorow is Valentine’s Day).

It’s really about loving others, loving one self, and recognizing gratitude everywhere.

This is what Valentine’s Day means to me.

I’m feeling empowered.

I can do this.  I can be a mom and an entrepreneur.

My role of mom does not define the whole of me.

It is a huge part of my life, that I treasure more than anything

But I am so much more than my role or any role for that matter.

I embrace the unknown, the journey ahead.

I am grateful for my role as mother and feel fortunate

As my daughter gives me life.

I can’t imagine a world without her.


Go Momma, Go!!!



Day 11-12: Fell Asleep Again

I had every good intention to write to you yesterday evening and then…ZZZZZ…. That happened! I fell asleep while rubbing my three year olds back.

I’m actually thankful for this as I woke up refreshed.  Momma actually got at least 7-8 hours of sleep.

I’ve decided after further contemplation about my blog, to keep my posts simple and brief.

I get bored sometimes just re-reading the paragraphs I write.  I don’t want people to stop reading because they are too long.  Also I appreciate the simple things in life, which is one reason I was drawn to the template I used for this blog.  And I’ve got to be honest, I  need any time I can get to play with our three year old and to work on completing my creative projects.  I don’t feel that people really want to read lengthy stories.

From now on I will summarize this mom’s journey through entrepreneurship with a few sentences or words.  (Okay obviously, this blog post doesn’t count as I needed to explain my intentions.)  Cheers to all the mothers out there who are full speed ahead building a life as a mom and an entrepreneur. It ain’t easy but someone’s gotta do it! =)

Go Momma, Go!!!





Day 1: Go Momma, Go!

I wanted last night to be my first blog post.  I had all good intentions.  It was my last day working as an Access Consultant at UCF Student Disability Services and my first day of documentary workshop class at UCF.  But even more so, it was the first day on a new journey.  The quest to become a momma preneur has officially began.  I have been planning for this day for years now.  It has finally come.

“Momma! Momma!” I hear faint crying and I assumed it sounded like a child, not mine. “Mommy!!!!!” the crying grew louder. “Olivia, I’m coming. Mommy is coming!!!” my toes missed the bamboo floor like a ballerina in mid air.  I figure the faster I fly the less pain.  The agony of hearing our 3 year old cry is unbearable. I’m there in a flash with my ballerina moves.

Mommapreneurship blog must wait until morning.

So here I am the morning after, posting about being a mom and entrepreneur.  The mantra I keep repeating is this “Go Momma, Go!”  My daughter just gave me her fairy wings. “One for you mommy! Let’s be fairies together.”  Life is good.  I love her so much.
