Welcome to Twig Hugger

It's a new year and a goal was to start writing on my blog. It's only January 19th, so considering another goal was to not be too hard on myself -- I'm off to a great start.

I am a mother of one little girl (18 months) and want to share my new experiences of being a parent in the world we live in today. I am a socially-conscious, environmentally friendly, hard working play-at-home mom.

I have a degree in education and enough babysitting references to make up a small village, but no single piece of paper or person could have prepared me for having my own child. I knew I was capable, but had no idea of the job description. I knew having a child would be a new set of challenges, but had no idea how unbelievably hard this can be at times. I knew I would fall in love immediately, but had no idea I had a whole reservoir of love that I never even tapped into before.

I thought my life would become a hybrid of the old me and the new me, but in reality, it all feels pretty darn foreign. Amazing, but all new to me. So I wanted to share what I have learned so far. I've learned about starting all over and making new friends, making new food, making a ton more garbage in diapers and plastic, making some new things, making new discoveries (and even opinions, too).

Thank you for reading, and stay tuned for new updates coming soon.


  1. Hey from one of the old friends! Looking so forward to your musings, and what a pretty picture!
