Welcome!

Hello all! My name is Kara and I am the creator of Finding It In My Forties. This blog is the end-result of a long term desire to get back into blogging after I had my daughter in 2014.

I used to be a lot of things…a blogger was one of them. I absolutely LOVED blogging and was proud to have a little following. Blogging for me was fun, therapeutic and a way for me to share the good, the bad and the ugly. I used to blog about fashion, jewelry, DIY, cooking and funny things that my husband did…a lifestyle blogger is what I would categorize myself as.

After I had my daughter, things changed drastically for me. I was no longer inspired to write…I kept thinking what am I writing about? Who cares? I am repeating the same thing hundreds of mom-blogs have already said. Why am I doing this? So, I stopped.

Over the past few years, I have experienced a lot of ups and downs. Weight gain, weight loss, postpartum depression, digestive disorder, the challenge of a work/life balance and so on. I needed an outlet…I need to get back into blogging. So I did and that is how Finding It In My Forties began…

What is “it” you ask? It could be ANYTHING. The perfect face cream. The easiest and most tasteful recipe. A time saving Mom hack. ANYTHING!
