It's my guess that if you are dealing with a spouse or partner's infidelity that you are probably telling yourself one, if not all of these lies. These are the lies I wish I had never told myself, but I'm here to tell you that all it takes is a pivot of you...

Excuse The Mess Blog is a lifestyle and single mom blog with the goal to empower people to be the best versions of themselves. I want to share with you my love for food, travel, motherhood, my often times bumpy journey to be the healthiest version of myself inside and out and all the beautiful mess of my beautiful life. I believe it’s not about finding yourself, it’s about giving yourself permission to be yourself and learning to love every part, mess and all.
