Meet Angela. A creative & mother of 4.
Hi, I’m Angela. I created this blog in 2014 when I found myself as an uninspired and jaded stay-at-home-mom after quitting my job as a professor of writing. As an artistic soul, being home all day with the kids without a creative outlet was more difficult than imagined. Yet I didn’t have a choice to work outside of the home because my first daughter Elise began showing signs of developmental delay by the age of one. Due to her various special needs, finding reliable outside childcare wasn’t an option, and I found myself stuck in a situation that didn’t suit my personality and identity. Eventually I’ll discover that this unforeseen turn of events was a blessing in disguise.
As we were struggling to discover her diagnosis (she was later diagnosed with SYNGAP1 at age 5) I became pregnant with my second daughter Tess. The two back-to-back pregnancies, long periods of isolation, dealing with my daughter’s genetic condition and my husband’s busy work hours put me in depression which eventually led me to hours of therapy, anti-depressants and a complete re-evaluation of myself, my life and my dreams.

Eventually I was able to find healing and hope through blogging and connecting with other moms both online and offline- and since then, I’ve gone on to have two more kids, a boy named Declan and girl named Rumi, who light up my world.
So yes- things DO get better with a little bit of work and a lot of self-discovery and love.
Where I am now: mama of four, full-time blogger, entrepreneur, sister to many
