Welcome to A Modern Mom’s Life – Let’s Get Acquainted!


Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. This post is intended to give you an overview of what I enjoy writing about, and hopefully inspire you to join my email list and stay connected with me!

As a mom who works outside the home I’m always busy.  Life just rushes by, and I wish I could slow it down and capture more moments.  But I can’t, so we muddle through as best we can.

I also run a writing and editing business. I specialize in small projects such as email editing, proofreading blog posts or other documents for businesses, or creating content from your ideas. You can read more about it on my Writing and Editing Services page. Get in touch if you’re interested in a consultation to see how I can help you improve your business documents!


Welcome to A Modern Mom's Life - A blog for working parents.Being a working mom I’m always looking for tips and tricks to make life easier.  In my Working Mom category I share some posts about having a busy family life, raising school-aged daughters, and my views on the world from the busy working mom perspective.

I’m also looking for other Working Moms to contribute to a series I’m running.  You can check out my Working Moms Series and let me know if you’d like to be featured!

I’m still learning about blogging in general.  I have a category dedicated to blogging, and there I post things I’ve discovered, or updates on how my blog is doing.  I hope to share tidbits of my blog knowledge as a continue to learn more about being a successful blogger.  There is no end to the learning, I’ve discovered!

Staying active is a huge goal of mine.  Joining a dance class is the best thing I’ve done in years as far as keeping me motivated and “working out.”  In my Active Living category I try to share tips for sneaking exercise into my busy life, or even just muse on how easy it is to sloth out and do nothing – especially in the winter!

Family Fun and Travel are categories where I share stuff we get up to as a family.  I’ve been able to get a few discounted admissions to attractions in exchange for reviews on the blog.  That’s so amazing to me!

My daughter Emma and I have some quiet aspirations to become famous.  In my Acting/Modelling category I post about our adventures in the land of stardom.  Really though we’ve been to one casting call together and I got a part and she didn’t.  (The company decided to not use kids after all…)  I have short blurb on my Contact Me page that talks about the few “extra” parts I’ve had in the last year.

I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, and I actually have 2 Kingston categories on my blog.  One is more travel and tourism related and the other is newer and meant to focus on what I like about the city, or businesses/people I’m using in my own life.

As of Dec 2018 I’ve also been writing for a local media outlet – Kingstonist. This allows me to share more about Kingston, without bogging down this mom blog of mine! If you type my name in the search bar there, you can find all my posts.

Of course I have a Work With Me page where you can read about ways I’d love to work together.  Guest Posting, Reviews, Freelance Writing, Social Sharing – I love working in all these areas.  

This blog of mine is always a work-in-progress and I love feedback.  Please leave me comments or send me an email with your thoughts.  I also do crowd sourced posts from time to time, so leave your email in the box below and I’ll be sure to get you on my email list.  You’ll get an email once a week with updates on the blog, and anything fun we’ve gotten up to   I also use my list to let you know of cool things happening in the blog-o-sphere, or other things of learned of to help you on your parenting journey!

(Make sure you check your spam folder – sometimes my confirmation emails get lost there.)


Be sure you take a few minutes to reply to my welcome email – I love getting to know my readers!

I look forward to sharing my words with you.  Welcome to A Modern Mom’s Life!

    1. Thanks for the kind words Lisa! Being a working mom is a lot of, well, work! I think it teaches us flexibility and some organization skills. Also how to stay in a routine with a spouse so you can figure out who takes who where, and when. I find that the hardest part – getting the after school activities sorted out!
