It’s ya girl Katrina and I’m back! I know it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. For those of you who have supported SiNgLe MoMmY Files from day one, Thank You! And for those of you that may be visiting for the first time, Welcome! I’m your host, the creator and editor of #SiNgLeMoMmYFiLeS.
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’m a divorcee (have been for 8 years now) and a uber proud SiNgLe MoMmY–I wear that title with a badge of honor! I’ve entertained several male frauds during the interim–a few of which were discussed in my WrOnG MiStEr series, but we’ll certainly talk about the more recent disappointments 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 who 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).
I’m all about being as open & honest as I possibly can. I’m working hard to build something relatable and writing things that will resonate with Single and Married Mommies. I want the things that I share to make you smile or laugh or cry or say hmmm. I hope to inspire, encourage, challenge (in a good way), and help you see things from a different perspective.
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!
Soooo grab a cup of coffee or tea…a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail (it’s 5 o’clock somewhere ). Get comfortable! Plan to stay for a while and feel free to scroll your way through #SiNgLeMoMmYFiLeS.
Until next time Mommies,
