At the age of 42, I am going through many dramatic changes in my life right now. As of April 27, 2011 I am a first time mom with my partner of 9 years. Our daughter’s name is Hope. I find myself unemployed after a successful 17 year career. My separation from my employer got the attention of local, national, and social media. Overnight, I turned into an accidental activist. I am not only coping well, but I am embracing my new life as an out-lesbian mother. I am working to become self-employed as a consultant and motivational speaker.
I want to keep the focus of my blog on my family. I do not plan to write about my involvement in politics or my venture into self-employment, although you might see that stuff in my tweets. The purpose of my blog is to relate, entertain, educate, motivate, and build community. I like to write, speak, cook, entertain, set goals, motivate, and achieve. Will that make me a good mom?
