About Me

Hi there fellow Moms!  I’m Joyce and am so happy you came to my blog.  I decided to start a blog to write about and share my experiences as a mother with other mothers and soon-to-be mothers.  When we fulfill this enormous role as a mother in this hectic world, it’s easy to feel alone, lost, or overwhelmed.  My hope is to educate and inspire mothers around the word on the many topics that affect us.

A little bit about my background:

Since 2005, I held a variety of different job roles in the social services and health field.  In 2010, I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work.  My daughter was born a few months after I graduated so it was quite an exciting and hectic year!  In the past, I’ve also worked professionally as a therapist for children, teenagers, and families, so I’ve had exposure to the challenges and issues that many children, teenagers, parents, and families experience in today’s world.

I’ve lived in Northern California my entire life and I enjoy the beautiful weather, diverse population, and different activities here.  The most important things to me in life are my family and friends.  When it comes to relationships and friendships, I believe in quality over quantity.  I’m also a huge dog lover.  I’ve always had at least one dog in my household since 1993!

I hope the information you find on this blog helps you make your job a little easier as a parent, whether it’s sharing a new recipe or giving some tips on self-care.  Thanks for visiting!
