I am a first-time mom from Metro Detroit, Michigan.
I started this blog as a way to chronicle all of the joys of pregnancy and motherhood as I experience them for the first time.
“The Joyous Path” is the meaning of the name “Layne Blythe,” which we gave to our daughter in December 2012. I find the meaning to be synonymous with the process of becoming a mother–really, becoming who I am. I carried a complete stranger inside me for 9 months whom I know better than anyone I have ever met.
May this blog be encouraging to other moms out there. May it provide a few laughs at my expense. Most of all, may it remind all of us of the joyous path we take in life when we choose to become parents.
