Welcome to  Abigail's Mom ! I'm Meaghan (better known as Abigail's Mom), a twenty something year old fiancĂ© and first time mom. I'm also a proud doodle mom of two. I was born and raised in beautiful Niagara Falls, Canada where I am now raising my own little family. I believe my love for photography, crafting, cooking and adventure help me be the best version of myself. This site started as a love note for the sweet girl who made me a mama, but then grew into a desire to share this crazy, unfiltered motherhood journey with other women just like me. If my blog could only have one takeaway, I hope that these little stories and tips remind you that you are never alone in this journey. The days are long but the years are short. Thank you for stopping by,  Meaghan
