I'M COURTNEY, CREATOR OF the family ma'am.

It's me you'll find behind the keyboard! I currently work and reside in Jacksonville, Florida with my fiancé and seven year old son, whom I haven't always called my own. 

I joined motherhood like so many other women do every day- not by giving birth, but by falling in love. And I may be new to mama-hood, but I'm kicking ass and taking names.

I'm an artist through and through. From my profession to my hobbies, you'll always find me in my creative element. I'm a writer, photographer, and avid reader. I like to spend my free time creating. It's important for me to live a stimulating life- and that's the reason I do what I do. 

It's important to me that I share my story with you. During my journey I've had the amazing opportunity to interact with women from all over, many whom are walking in the same shoes as me! What I've really learned though, is that there aren't too many resources available from which we can learn or interact with other women who can relate on similar levels. But I want that to change. 

I'm starting by sharing my story. And soon, many others' stories. I want to erase the 'Step-Mom' stigma. I'm just a millennial mama, with no former parenting experience navigating my way through new-found family hood, and doing my best to help raise an amazing kid that I've come to love more than life itself.

I know I'm not alone in my journey. Have a story you'd like to authentically share? Contact me here.
