Hey Mama! Thanks so much for checking out Mama Brilliance. I’m Megan, the founder of this humble blog. Mama Brilliance was created with you in mind. Pregnancy and parenthood are beautiful and exciting. But they can also be kind of scary, and sometimes real, real confusing. I’m here to put the sparkle back in your step. You deserve to live life brilliantly, and Mama Brilliance can help. This blog will help you to get back to feeling like yourself, with helpful tips, tricks, and products to make life just a little bit easier. 

A little more about me, I live in northern Minnesota with my husband Dan and our son, Milo. We have 2 dogs and a cat, we love the great outdoors, and we’re new at this parenting thing too. Coffee, cupcakes, and chardonnay are just a few of my favorite things, and I’m constantly trying to improve my photography skills. Seriously, why is Lightroom so complicated? 

Thanks again for stopping in at Mama Brilliance. I’d love to connect with you on Instagram or Pinterest, and I’m always looking for guest bloggers. So hit me up over on the contribute page! Chat with you soon! <3

XOXO,

Megan
