Who is City Mom?
I am a 30-something Mom born and raised in London, Ontario. I have an amazing little girl who will be 3 years old next week. I am a full time web designer, full time Mom, and full time wife. I am a part time blogger with a gigantic passion for writing.
I began City Mom only 5 months ago. The motivation to start my blog was of course my passion for writing, and a life change event. My husband and I are huge city people. We actually met while he was living in downtown Toronto. We moved back to London when I became pregnant so we could be closer to our families. We bought a small house in the suburbs. After a short time we came to realize we missed the city life. We decided to buy a condo in downtown London. Right in the heart of the city.
When we shared our news with friends, families and coworkers, we often got the impression that people thought we were crazy for this decision. Typically the city and a high-rise condo is not viewed as the most child-friendly place. We truly disagreed with this thought and from that I gained my motivation. I began documenting our experiences.
In writing City Mom I have become very passionate about my city. I love to write about raising my daughter in downtown London and promote the city as much as I can. My highlight to date is the opportunity I took to interview London's Mayor regarding our upcoming mayoral election.
