It’s a hard truth that I have had to learn but thankfully the lesson came early and the solution could be handled in a fun manner.

We face the same fears, insecurities, pressure and hate. At times we even act out and hurt one another as only a woman can… A HUGE part of why I started Just a Mamma was to bring about change. Change…
