A 27 years old mommi to Carter Adrian. I live in Boston, MA. I named my blog TheWineDrinkingMom, well for obvious reasons, I love a nice glass of wine and since giving birth to my son it has been important to me to stay true to who I was before becoming a mother (something mothers often forget to do).

As I transitioned to Mommi Blogger, my goal has been to share my experiences, perspectives, thoughts and opinions as a young, working, black millennial mother just trying to “live my best life.” So, grab a glass and follow me as I blog about the things people don’t want to talk about, the things people may be too embarrassed to talk about and the things everybody is talking about.
