My name is Sydney. I am a single mother to the most beautiful baby girl (1-year-old) and her name is Lily Ray. Lily was not a planned part of my life, but she is now the very best part of my life!
Around my teenage years, I decided I didn’t want to have children. I honestly felt like I was not built to be a parent and I would definitely screw up any child of mine. As I got older, I decided if I ever did have children I would have to be a millionaire married to a dashingly handsome man and we would live in a perfect white house like the one in Father of the Bride. So basically, I wasn’t planning on having children.
Then, through what I now see as a fortunate series of events, Lily came into my life. And guess what? I love being a mom! I was so nervous that I was going to be the worst mom ever and now I feel like I’m doing exactly what I was meant to do my whole life. And I didn’t even need a fancy white house! Or a dashing man for that matter! Well, I guess I DID need one. But now I don’t. You know what I mean!
So I started this blog as a place to share my knowledge, thoughts, and tips with other mothers. To hopefully inspire other mothers and show them that even if their circumstances are not ideal they can still be a great mother, that no mother is alone in their journey, and that there are other mothers out there who share in their struggles and also in their triumphs.
This blog is about Me and Lily. It’s about all things motherhood and baby. With a little dash of natural living and home decor thrown in there! I believe that you can be a co-sleeping, baby wearing, nature-loving mama and still be stylish and cool!
Please take a look around our site and enjoy! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. 🙂
Have a beautiful day!
