My name is Bethany Ciotola, & I’m a sarcastic, netflix binging, maxi dress wearing hopeless romantic. I’m wife to the man of my dreams (actually… I don’t even think I could have dreamed up a better man. Sorry Chris, but I think I’m the one who got the better end of the deal in this union), mommy to the two little loves of my life – Kai (2) and Rowan (1) and creator of this blog.
I don’t have all the answers when it comes to life/motherhood but I can promise you that you will most likely learn something from my mistakes (I make many) & while I may not be a trendy fashionista, I do know how to pick out one heck of a floral maxi dress that will pretty much flatter anyone and takes a whole 2 seconds to put together. I’m not perfect, but life isn’t perfect and perfect is just a word. In a fantasy world full of all-white Instagram feeds, prestige white couches and unrealistic forever happy captions, I’d like to show you that motherhood is really a beautiful chaotic mess. I have days of pure happy bliss, and I have just as many days of hiding from my kids with a bag of M&M’s in a corner thinking “How is it only 11 am right now?!”. I want us to find humor & laugh together at our common daily struggles and celebrate in our achievements. To me, motherhood is a common ground that brings us together not a competition to set us apart. I look forward to getting to know you all a little better while I share our everyday life, monumental moments and everything in between.
