I'm Darrian! Welcome to my little neck of the internet woods. I'm a newlywed military spouse and soon-to-be mama who loves wearing mom jeans and firmly believes that you were made for whatever season of life you're in. Oh, and coffee. I started blogging in 2017 when I was eagerly awaiting my fiancé’s graduation from West Point and actively planning our wedding (+ the rest of our life together). When I started blogging, I knew that I wanted to share all of the aspects about my life in the hopes that it could help someone else in similar situations! Navigating things like being a newlywed, military life, and motherhood takes a village and I’m happy to have cultivated my own little community right here on the internet!
In the few short years that this blog has been a part of my life, it’s seen a lot of changes. While the past names are irrelevant, they’re all a part of the story of how Made in Mom Jeans came to be. I’m a firm believer that you don’t always get everything right on the first or even the second try so the past few months of blogging and rebranding have taught me a lot about flexibility. I settled on the name MADE IN MOM JEANS because to me, it embodies my life motto, and coming into my own. I was MADE for this. I wear mom jeans, A LOT so I knew I had to include them since they’re kind of my thing now.
It is my hope that Made in Mom Jeans inspires you to believe that you were made for whatever season of life you’re in.
Things I want this blog to be:
A resource for twenty-somethings, newlyweds, military spouses, and first time moms
A source of positive inspiration that makes you say, “I was MADE for this.”
A support system for those in similar situations
An open place to share thoughts and ideas, no matter how different
A (not so perfect) and REAL guide to life
A few more snippets about me…
My fiance and I met on Tinder. I love Shakespeare and my favorite novel is The Great Gatsby. I have two fur-children name (appropriately) Gatsby and Hemingway who will grace the pages of this blog (and who often steal the show on our vlog channel). In 2018 we’ll be starting our journey with the Army. Location TBD.
Want to know my favorite color, ice cream of choice, or something more serious like how to survive (and thrive) in college? Literally, ask me anything and I’ll do my best to answer.
