Final Mama's Boy Blog: Thank You & Goodbye

Today is my last Mama’s Boy blog on I had a fun, successful two years and leaving this blog feels bittersweet, but right. In 2010 when I left I had a mini meltdown. Glamour and completely lifted me up and made me the writer and blogger I am today.

In 2010 I felt like my story wasn’t over and I had more to give—I am so happy I had the chance to do it here on But, today I feel like I have come full circle and it’s time for me to have a fresh start in many, many aspects of life, family, love and career. I’m going to dip out for a moment and recharge my batteries, but on June 1 I’ll debut a new, fresh blog and headline as the only single parent voice. In addition, I'll continue to work as a freelance fashion and accessory Market Editor at First for Women magazine. Lots of projects are in the works, too.
