Finding Magic in Motherhood: Motherhood After Infidelity and Divorce

“This week’s feature is from Lindsay Kelleher, owner of Ink & Oak Design Co. – a Northern California based calligraphy and signage service. Lindsay is one of the most gifted mamas I have ever met, and I was blown away by her nurturing spirit with her two girls when we first met. I remember thinking, “wow this is the kind of mother I want to be when my babies are older!!” We met off the app Peanut, which is an app that takes the awkward out of finding new mama friends. Unfortunately for me, she moved just after we met. But, she’s the kind of person you’d want to keep close to your heart, no matter how far away she lives! She will be sharing a story that might be all too familiar to some mamas: one that stems from brokenness, but is laced with grace, hope, and resilience.

What she’s currently reading: “The Power of a Parent’s Blessing by Craig Hill – seriously the best book I’ve probably ever read, this is my third time reading it.”

Favorite indulgence: “Burnt caramel dark chocolate covered almonds from Sprouts!”

Favorite thing to cook: “My famous Brussels sprouts with bacon, apple, shallots and balsamic glaze. I make this at least once a week!”

Thank you Lindsay  for being a part of our Real-Girls: Mothers community. Finding magic in the midst of motherhood + marriage is something  we are all doing, together. Read below for Lindsay’s essay on Motherhood After Infidelity and Divorce. Xo, Becca Continue reading
