Hey there! My name is Chantel and I am a 23-year-old coffee-obsessed, reader, hiker, and writer. Who can also be a bit obnoxious at times...

A Bit About Me: I am a blogger and freelance writer who loves daydreaming up stories that someday I hope to share. I have a passion for self-improvement/development, empowering and inspiring other stepmoms and youth; and I am a sever children's rights and shared-parenting advocate. I also have this weird obsession with children's books (Dr. Seuss being my Fave, of course) - I love books in general, but there's something about children's books that just make me happy, ya know?

Why I'm here: I want to share with you crazy and exciting journey through step-parenting and being a part-time student, my goal is to empower and support my fellow stepmoms and inspire young adults to be their best selves.

I’ve lived with anxiety and insomnia for as long as I can remember, and I’ve lived with depression since I was sixteen. I am doing my best not to allow it all to control my life, and I believe I have been doing an amazing job doing just that.

I also want to encourage others to not only work together but to know that it’s okay to stand up for ourselves and make our voices heard. My hope is that Lattes and Life Lessons will become as important to you as it is to me!

With that being said, I invite you to get in touch with me and explore all that I have to offer; perhaps my blog will ignite your own passions too, if not help you through your troubled times.

This is my journey. Through it, I hope to learn and grow as both a writer and a woman <3
