As a single mom...

What single moms want you to know, but can’t always find a way to say

As a single mom...

I've been a single mom since the moment I found out I was pregnant. From the moment he knew I was pregnant, he didn't want the baby. This has been my life since the first moments I learned about the life growing inside of me. I don't know a difference. This is my way to say want I always want to, but never know how.

I'm not strong.

I'm not strong. I don't know what I'm doing most of the time. But I don't have a choice. She's my baby. I live life, day to day, for my daughter. I cry most days. I pray to God to send me a good man. I pray that my daughter won't grow up feeling the absence of her biological father, and some of his family as well. I'm not strong, I'm doing what I have to do.

I'm always tired.
I never get a break. I'm currently with my daughter almost all day long, everyday of the week. I'm tired. I love her, but I'm tired. I need a break every once in a while, but then I feel like a bad mom. The times I most need a break, are the times I most resent the guy who left us.

Your support means the world to me.

To my family, friends, and the part of his family that loves my daughter, thank you. Thank you for your support and love. I couldn't do this without you guys. Even with her “dad" abandoning her, she is one of the most loved babies I know. While I say I'm not strong, I appreciate hearing it. I can never repay you all for everything you've done & will do for us.

This life has not been what I imagined as a little girl. This is not what I wanted for my daughter. But I wouldn’t trade her for the world. She’s my heart and soul. I don’t know where I would be without her. So I also want to say a quick thank you..

Thank you Terence.
Thank you for giving me the best thing of my entire life. Thank you for letting me have her all to myself. Thank you for leaving & not letting her know how terrible of a dad you would have been. Thank you for my biggest blessing.

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
