Hi there! My name is Gemma and I am the writer behind Everly & Co.
Based in Hamilton, Ontario, Everly & Co. is a lifestyle blog that focuses on a timeless approach to food & entertainment, motherhood and life. My most recent journey as a new mom has a large presence on the blog. After the wave of visitors following the delivery of our son, Isaiah, I was surprised by how lonely and unsure I felt. Growing up as the second of four girls I am fortunate to have sisters who are always there for me, while I felt I had done my fair share of research there were days where I felt an immense amount of pressure to figure out motherhood. So there I sat in the early hours of the morning with a new baby, a new role and a whole lot of questions.
In the weeks following my delivery I found myself being pulled towards writing, it started off as journaling but quickly turned into so much more. As days turned into weeks, and weeks turned into a month, I found solitude when I made time to write, unpack my day and center my thoughts. With the gentle push from my friends and family, I took a leap and began to document and share the trials and tribulations of my journey. It’s a bit intimidating to put yourself out there, but I wanted to create a space that was honest and relatable for women; a place where we can forget about “figuring it all out”, and instead learn to appreciate both the pressures and rewards of motherhood.
Everly & Co is designed for the modern mom who is trying to balance family, fun and work.
