Hi Jen! Tell us a little bit about you and what do you do!?

I’m a full-time stay-at-home mom of three girls. My oldest daughter is five years old and my other two girls are two-year-old twins. I am also a blogger.

How do you use your platform to impact other moms—and parents—who follow you?

My goal with my site and social media is to let women know they’re normal for having a bad day, and perfection should never be a goal. I use my platform to inspire women to feel beautiful, even after kids, to share my real life mom ups and downs, show obtainable style inspiration, and I am an advocate for self love and positive body messaging.

What’s your personal style/beauty mantra?

My life is pretty casual, so great basics are the focus of my wardrobe. While I do like to feel stylish and put together, I absolutely prioritize comfort and function. Clothes should make you feel good when you put them on.

What would the Mother’s Day of your fantasies be? And what, in reality, does Mother’s Day usually look like at your house?

Fantasy: a 24-hour hotel stay. Room service. Fuzzy robe. Spa treatments. So much sleep. Reality: early wake up. Snuggles from my little crew. Brunch out at a kid-friendly spot. My usual momming with my husband kicking his already amazing dad skills up a notch to give me a break. Not that much sleep. And because I love them all to bits—it’s perfect.

Did motherhood come easy to you, or were there challenges (if so, any in particular you’d like to share)?

There were parts that came easily. With certain things instinct definitely kicked in. The things I struggled with were the things I had never been told about or heard much about before. Things like the real struggles women can have with breastfeeding, what sleep deprivation is really like, and mom guilt. Oh the mom guilt. These conversations are so important to have so new moms don’t feel so alone.

The hardest thing about being a mom? The best thing?

Hardest thing: that you long for time to yourself but can also feel very lonely. Best thing: with my oldest, I’m so in love with her stories she tells me. I love hearing her tell me about her day, what she did at school and what hilarious thing happened to her. With my twins, watching the two of them play together, help each other and have one another’s backs is the best experience. And those “I love you Mommy” moments can bring me to tears.
