Welcome! I'm Courtney, Founder, and Co-Owner of Mid-Michigan Moms. I'm a Mitten born and raised mom of three. Over five years ago, my passion for writing led me to connect with other moms in my community. We began to share our collective stories of motherhood. Nothing was off-limits - good days or bad, triumphs or the not so great parts (like the really, really hard stuff). I could never have imagined that it would lead to this wonderful group of women and mothers, but here we are! Together, the Mid-Michigan Moms team strives to connect you with one another, and with the best of what our area has to offer. Welcome to our amazing network. I'm so glad you're here.
