Writer. Friend. Mom. Storyteller.

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.

On this blog you will find honest recommendations, inspiration and advice related to life, motherhood, cooking, wellness and travels.
