Until sometime in the not so distant past I was just Carly.

Well, not just Carly; also Carly who loves Jesus, Carly the wife, Carly who can’t get enough snorkeling and wine and campfires and flip flops and gardening and pasta.

I guess you could also say I’m Carly the anxious, Carly the totally socially awkward and Carly the least-athletic-human-ever.

The over thinker and the Big Bang Theory addict.

I graduated to “mommy” (2 times over) in the not so distant past – and it sure wasn’t an EASY transition… but it was the single best life-upgrade I’ve ever made. (Even if it doesn’t always FEEL like a life upgrade, when you’re learning to breastfeed or struggling through a baby sleep regression).

Now I’m Carly the Mommy. And it turns out mommy-ing is my very favorite thing. 

I’m not remotely afraid of “losing myself” as a mom, and I want to embrace this messy mom life and make it count.

And I want to help you do that too.

I share practical new mom advice – straight from my own experiences – and the experiences of other moms who’ve been there too.

I want to help you create your BEST life as a mom – if that means working from home so you can be with your kids, or if it means taking care of yourself postpartum – or maybe it means finding the best collection of articles on breastfeeding, (so you don’t have to struggle through it cluelessly…).

Whatever it means, I want to give new moms the resources to make their best life happen.

I am exhausted, confused, a little scared… and totally in love. And working on my best life as a mom.
