Hi.

I’m Natalie.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in motherhood, specifically as a stay at home mom to two girls, Addie & Belle.

Wow! Has it really been four months since my last post? Well, here I am again, hopefully to stay this time.

If you’re new here, welcome to Mothering Girls. If you’ve visited before, you’ve probably noticed the name change. This blog used to go by Natti’s Place. Natti’s Place was the name on my heart for years. It was the name I used for my Etsy shop when I opened it 6 years ago. I had big dreams for that name, but sometimes dreams change. I am learning that it is okay for me to change my mind about my dreams.

Mothering Girls is the place where I will write about my journey as a mother. I am finding great joy in being a mother to my two girls, Addie and Belle. They truly have my heart. And being a mom to girls? Well, that’s an adventure in itself. Our home is filled with bows and baby dolls, but also cars and trains. And so many books. There’s so much to being a mother that I want to share. There is joy, sadness, laughter, pain, frustration, and fun.

And when it comes to mothering, a key ingredient is the mother herself. So, I will share about myself as well. My hopes and dreams, things I’ve been through. Since becoming a mom I have lost myself, then found myself, just to lose myself all over again. It happens, and it’s okay. There is still hope for me to find myself, not just as a mother but as an individual. So, follow along as I turn the pages on this journey of mine.
