Angela is mom to a very fun, social boy and a newborn daughter, whom she has nicknamed “diva.” She works full-time as a middle school counselor, and is a photographer-wannabe on the side. She started her blog, the Mommy Stories, as a gift to two of her formerly pregnant friends, as a way to offer up advice and ease the transition into mommyhood. What started as a simple idea has now become a passion bordering obsession of talking all things mommy-related. This mommy strives to live in a no-momma-judgment-zone and be as honest as possible so that other moms can feel free to open up about their experiences, too. On her blog, you will find real mom’s birth stories, milk stories, and experiences of adding a second child to the house. She includes book reviews, photography tips, kid-friendly recipes, and heartfelt letters to her children. Check out her MomsinMaine blog, the Mommy Stories.
