The Mothering Skirt was mainly begun as a self-improvement exercise. I needed to write. I needed to reflect on being a mother, my life’s biggest job. I needed a creative outlet. It was rewarding when it was also well-received by the people who read it and now I am beginning to see it as more of a forum much like other many other mothering, style, cooking or lifestyle blogs out there. I am working toward creating that forum bit by bit starting with the posts and a recipe box and I welcome your feedback.
