over the next few days and couple of weeks leading to #paperheartbyboomiebol(please let’s make this trend) I will be sharing some behind the words details with you all so you get some inside details into paper heart and how my first book came to be.

this poem is the first poem I wrote after almost 16 years of paper silence. I believe the words came to me in 2010/2011 as I sat with my twin babies and nursed them.

I remember repeating the words “welcome to mommy-hood!” several times over. this moment changed everything as it related to my writing and words. I picked up the pen and started writing again.

I wrote poems for my daughters. I wrote letters to them every birthday. I still do. (I encourage every parent to do this). after a while I shared the letters I wrote for their birthday with family and close friends. I have done this for 10 years.

it was this poem that pushed me to start my blog in 2012… the blog led me here…
