Celebrating Mama@Heart with a Giveaway!

Welcome to the newly redesigned Mama@Heart! I’m very excited to unveil my new website to you, and host this giveaway!

For over two years, this blog has grown nearer and dearer to my heart with each passing day. I started blogging as a way to share my motherhood journey and connect with other parents. I have accomplished this, but over time it has become so much more. Not only have I had the chance to connect with some amazing fellow parent bloggers, but I have also had the opportunity to be introduced to many wonderful brands, children’s authors, and musicians. I love coming across such talented people and find that their work inspires me.

When I found myself struggling with depression last year, blogging became a source of therapy for me. Writing has always been a passion of mine so it was only natural that sharing this journey on my blog brought me some peace and calmness. The best part was receiving messages from people who said they were touched by how I opened up about my struggle with depression. If my story helps even one person then it makes sharing this personal side of me worth it.

So, you might be wondering, why the change? Why relaunch? My short answer is, I felt like it was time. My long answer is this: after being laid off from my job I found myself wondering what to do next. My first instinct was to focus on my blog more and I felt like Mama@Heart needed a bit of a makeover! Improving my website was something I was already considering before and now with having the proper time to dedicate to making some changes I decided to do it. Relaunching also means getting a fresh start with my blog; a chance for new possibilities and reaching a larger audience. I love connecting with my readers!

But don’t worry, this isn’t necessarily a complete “out with the old and in with the new” situation. I still plan on sharing posts about family life, kids, and motherhood, as well as reviews of great children’s books, music, toys and other family-friendly products. What I would like to add is some more lifestyle pieces and dive further into health and wellness for the entire family.

So for those of you who have been along for the ride for the past two years, I thank you! And for those who are newly discovering Mama@Heart, I say welcome! I hope you all continue to enjoy this journey with me!

 

Now, let’s CELEBRATE!

In celebration of relaunching my blog, one lucky reader will win a $25 gift card for Amazon!

      I’ve never tried bath bombs, but I’ve heard they’re nice and relaxing. Great aromatherapy!

      Love this! When you can’t do a full reno, sometimes simply adding new decor items is enough for a fresh look 🙂

        I have a shoe problem. Years ago my husband and I finally moved in together. He told me I had to cut back on my shoes. I told him I did not have a lot.. well, I sorted them and he counted.. I had about 120 pairs. Oops, sadly he made me donate several pairs.
