About Me


I'm Emma and I love being a mom.


Some days I make it out of the house put together and ready for anything, and some days it's a one way ticket on the hot mess express - but I am here for every minute of this wild journey. Motherhood brought me back to my roots, so I decided to turn my love of writing into a way to document my life with my husband and son, and anyone else who is around for the ride. 

I've got a penchant for pop culture, a knack for New Orleans, and a pitbull named Praline. I believe in the Oxford comma. Above all, I pledge to honor this rollercoaster of parenthood by seeking solace in the honesty of the written word.


I hope you enjoy it.
