“I now see how owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.”

-Brené Brown

The transition into being a mom can be daunting and isolating. Just know that you aren’t alone! My best hope is that this can be a safe space to explore a wide range of topics all surrounding becoming a mom and taking care of yourself through the process and beyond.

My personal goal is to be approachable, transparent, and real. So, I named my blog the same phrase I use to sign a letter: Love, Linley. Think of my posts as a little letter of inspiration or encouragement from a friend.

Let’s be mommy friends!

I’m expecting and want to explore more about how to prepare mentally for becoming a mom.

I’m in the postpartum phase and want to focus on my mental health during this transition into motherhood.

I want to learn about all things motherhood and focus on maternal mental health & wellness.
