8 Reasons Why You Should Attend The 2015 YML Self-Care Retreat For Moms

One of the first blogs that I stumbled across after having Moo was TheYoungMommyLife.com.  My daughter was my first baby and I remember feeling overwhelmed, scared and just frustrated because I couldn't seem to find any communities or books related to young motherhood and more specifically moms of color.  And the resources/communities I did find were either out of date or just didn't resonate with me for a variety of reasons.  But then I came across Tara's blog and it felt like I'd finally found a fellow mom/community that I could relate to.

It's years later and I still love and read YML.  Her blog has blossomed and bloomed into a community that has become known as a safe haven for other young moms and moms in general.  I think the greatest thing to come out of stumbling across YML is by far having the opportunity to get know Tara personally.  I definitely consider her to be a good friend, which is why I invited her to drop by the blog and share a bit out her 2015 YML Self-Care Retreat for Moms coming up September 18-20th.  So keep reading to find out what this retreat is all about and why you should be making plans go!
