About Me

Welcome to Young Mommy Memoirs!


Nick & Sid - 2007
Cole & Sid - 2007

My name is Cole.

Cole - 2013



I started this blog in hopes of being able to inspire, encourage and support other young moms. Life can be hard, and it can be much harder once you have a little one depending on you for everything, and even harder when you're not quite independent yourself. Without my family and friend's support I don't think I would have made it even this far. But I believe we can have it all, and deserve the best for not only our children but ourselves, too.

I had my daughter Sidney when I was 17 with my boyfriend Nick. Over the past few years we have grown and matured a lot. Even through everything we're still growing and maturing every day. 

Chasing dreams, and achieving goals; this blog is all about what it's like to be a young parent through the struggles and success we face every day.

Being a parent is the most difficult, and the greatest thing I have ever experienced.

You can read more about me in my first post found here.

Every Day Life

I will also be posting about my every day life. Goals I want to achieve, how I plan to achieve them and if I have or not. There's a lot I want for my daughter and for myself, and I'm going to accomplish these things. 

I want:

  • to go green
  • eat out of my own garden
  • live a minimalist lifestyle
  • travel more, experience more
  • learn an attitude of gratitude

Life's Little Pleasures

All of my hobbies and interests will show up on my blog from time to time because obviously they play a huge part in my every day life.

I enjoy:

  • writing
  • baking
  • crafting
  • vintage shopping
  • my Etsy shops
  • photography
  • drawing
  • painting
  • reading
  • and most of all, playing with Sid!
Everything I write is 100% honest, because life shouldn't be downplayed or dramatized. It should be real.
