Me and the Kids at a Fun Fest 5k in Palm Desert CA

Me and the Kids at a Fun Fest 5k in Palm Desert CA

“Single Mom Thriving” has been my mantra since the inevitable demise of my “classic”  family status almost 7 years ago.  I found myself a single mom with 2 kids, 2 dogs and loads of responsibilities.   I promised myself that this would not be the end of the world for me and my kids, but the start of an adventure for us.  A new normal.

So, I named my blog “Single Mom Thriving” to document this adventure we have been on and perhaps maybe inspire someone else in some related way.

I am a novice DIY’er, a part time photographer, a professional Project Manager and the proud mother of two awesome kids.  Welcome to Our Beautiful Life.

  1. I stumbled across your brag blog on Ana’s site a while back and absolutely adore your daughters room. I’m in the process of redoing mydaughters’ room and having been using your room as an inspiration piece. I’ve already built their bed. I’d love to see an in depth blog post about her room. Any chances we’ll see that in the future?

  2. Great! Can’t wait to see it. We’re dealing with a small room and two girls! I built the storage bed and will be doing some floating night stands and such to keep plenty of floor space.

  3. Hi there! I had a question for you about us possibly collaborating on something and was hoping you could email me back to discuss? Thanks so much!

  4. Hi,
    I hope my message finds you well. I’m an Associate Producer for HuffPost Live, the live streaming network for the Huffington Post. I was wondering if you would be available to join us tomorrow at 12:30pm ET via webcam to talk about thriving. Please email me at to discuss further.
    Thank you!
