Mothering a Daughter: What I Am Looking Forward To

When my dear friend Kristina asked me to write a guest post for her lovely blog, I was totally honored.  And when she asked me to write it about what I most look forward to as the mother of a daughter, I was delighted.  I hadn't actually taken the time or energy to really consider all that I am looking forward to, until now.  And honestly, writing this now as we've hit some rough patches lately, is the best thing I could have done.

It is such a privilege and a responsibility to raise a daughter.  I have always wanted to be a mom, and I can't tell you how happy I am that I had a daughter first.  She has opened my heart in ways I never imagined possible.  There are so many things I want for her to experience and enjoy in her life.


  1. I love this. This whole post reminds me of one of my favorite poems from one of my favorite poets. It's called "If I Should Have a Daughter" and it seriously makes me long for motherhood! I find it just completely inspiring...hope you like it.

  2. I love Sarah Kay!! Amazing! I've heard this before! Thank you so much!


Thank you so much for your lovely comments! I don't always have time to respond to each one, but I do read them! XO
