Day 2-Meaning behind your blog name
My blog name is what it is... oliversinspiredmama. When my son was born 4 months ago, I was suddenly inspired to do all the things I always said I was going to do/start but always made an excuse or couldn't 'find' the time. *hints this post... I've wanted to blog for years, but have been to afraid to start one.
Day 3-Your first love
Ok so...My first love isn't a past boyfriend, he is my very bestest friend... Satwian
