It’s ya girl Katrina, and I’m back! I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. And for those of you who supported SiNgLe MoMmY Files from day one, Thank You! For those of you that may be visiting for the first time, Welcome! I’m your host, the creator and editor of SmF. Just so you know, I took a break as there were a lot of things going on in my personal life. I was working on the 2nd draft of a book (that is still a work in progress), taking college courses to help with that, all while juggling MoMmYhOoD and MoMaGeR duties. My son, his schooling and demanding acting career all needed my full undivided attention. So it was necessary for me to put my life somewhat on hold and my hobbies on the back burner, to focus on him. Besides, that’s what SiNgLe MoMmIeS do, right?
To bring you up to speed real quick, I’ve traveled, I’ve entertained a couple of male frauds *rolls eyes* we’ll certainly talk about that later. I’ve embraced my natural hair and embarked on a natural hair journey, I’ve tried to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet; I’ve gained a couple of pounds or five (lol), but most importantly, I’ve lived, loved, lost, learned and have grown spiritually, mentally, and emotionally, since the last time we’ve talked. I’m sure you’d be happy to know that all is well…everything has worked out for my good! And I’m so excited about sharing the deets with my SmF fam!! I’ve certainly missed you all!
Because I’ve had time to think, I’ve decided to revamp SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS. Just in case you haven’t seen the new motto, it’s now A LifeStyle Blog for SiNgLe MoMmIeS and Married MoMmIes that feel SiNgLe sometimes. Oh and about that last part, my thoughts are this; whether we are #teammarried or #teamdivorced, #teamtaken or #teamSiNgLe, motherhood can be very overwhelming and demanding (a lot of the responsibility usually falls on us as women), so we’re all in the same boat. Plus, I would know–I’ve been #teamalloftheabove (by choice, of course).
The plan is to jump right back into our regularly scheduled program. I’ve also set up a SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS YouTube Channel to post beauty, hair, food, and shopping tutorials (Coming Soon). I’ll be sharing expert advice from other well-known bloggers/vloggers, and inviting content contributors to share their stories/advice. I’m so excited and I’m certainly looking forward to it all!
In the meantime, grab a cup of your favorite drink or glass of wine (depending on the time of day), get comfortable, stay for a while, and feel free to laugh, maybe even cry, relate in some way or another, and hopefully get inspired as you browse your way through SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS.
Until next time Mommies,
P.S. This shoot was totally impromptu. My son @terrellransomjr has taken an interest in photography. He has an artistic eye, and saw art in things that looked normal to me. So. I finally got him a Canon and he wanted to use me as his muse. I obliged. And to my surprise, the view, through his lens, was the inspiration behind the rebirth of SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS. And thankfully, here we are!
