Baby Showers: The Next Big Thing

Like so many modern celebrations, Baby Showers have arrived in the UK from North America. It’s a real tradition over there and, like High School Proms, Halloween and Black Friday, one of those exciting social events that is catching on big time over here.

"Yep, I do a lot of multi tasking and feel that everything ends up done half assed (sorry for the language). I have a lot of plans this year to do a total career change, so I'll be super busy and need to figure out how to balance everything."

Profile Information

What is your blog name?
Gwen Moss
What is your blog URL?
Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
I'm terrible at this. But here it goes. I'm married to my best friend. I have two teenage boys who keep me grateful and wide-eyed about Life. I was an psychotherapist for eighteen years, who specialized in Eating Disorders so I know a lot about shame and insecurities and how someone heals. And these days I'm a DIY home decorater-event planner-thrift & antigue-store stalker-lover of books, current events, and writing. Most of my clothes are either black or white and shades of blue. (I'm boring dresser) and I have an incurable sweet tooth.
What is your blogging philosophy?
My goals with blogging are to be real, and to write with the hope of giving something back. I would like my blog to be a place where someone can feel inspired by a lovely picture, or a DIY tutorial, or by a thoughtful commentary about mothering or about the many pieces of our lives...
I have been blogging since...

Welcome to Mom Blogger's Club! I hope you enjoy your time here and find it helpful! I know it can be overwhelming at first but I promise, you'll be a pro on here in no time! I write a blog called The Adventures of J-Man and MillerBug. It's a blog about my life with my two boys and I do some pretty cool giveaways (OK, I think they're cool! Do you?)

Every week I host the Finding New Friends Weekend Blog Hop and the Make My Morning Blog Hop. It's a great way to find new followers and friends as well as get to know more of your fellow mom bloggers. If you're not familiar with a blog hop, all you have to do is add your blog to the list. Participants then "hop" from blog to blog to find great new blogs! It's a ton of fun! I'd love to have you join us. One of these is going on now so come on over and link up! You can find one HERE. Be sure to leave a messge if you join up so that I can follow you back!

Let me know if you have any questions or if I can help you with anything in your blogging journey! I look forward to being your friend!
