Welcome everyone! My name is Mary Hawkins, and I’ve been hanging out in the digital media space since 2009. In a former life, you may have known me as “The Mommyologist.” That’s where I started my whole blogging journey — writing about all of the funny things in life that happen after kids enter the picture.
Fast forward to 2016, and instead of navigating life with a toddler, I’m a single mom of a very charismatic 10-year-old and a pint-sized Shih-Tzu named Tito. By day, I’m the Senior Audience Development Editor for CafeMom, where I’ve worked for almost 5 years. I’m in charge of all things reality TV over there, so I started this blog as place where I can write about my own reality. (It’s actually more entertaining than the Kardashians at times.)
About a year-and-a-half ago, I entered a new phase of life after getting divorced, so this is kind of my form of therapy, or something. A place to get my thoughts out and have a hobby again, and to hopefully help and inspire others to not be afraid to take a leap of faith and start their lives over.
I’ll be talking about life after divorce and the positive side of moving on from a marriage. I’ll be writing about lifestyle topics in general. And since travel is and always has been a huge part of my life, I’ll be telling you all about my latest adventures too.
I hope you’ll take a look around and stay a while.
