Single Mother by Choice

Julie Schrader knew she wanted to be a mother, but waiting around for Mr. Right was frustrating. And then she found a choice. What she learned about herself, the journey of moving from risk-averse to risk-taking, and the freedom in releasing expectations.

WELCOME!

Motherhood is a crazy journey in self-doubt and uncertainty. As a result, I find myself wishing ON THE REGULAR for a non-existent manual. A few years ago, this prompted me to begin sharing pieces of my story from the vantage point as Lowey Fraternity House President. Pranks, chaos, sports every night, mom meltdowns, laughs... we've got a bit of it all going on over here.

Then an evolution of The Mom Huddle began. Women with amazing stories just waiting to be shared began emerging everywhere. Moreover, I had the platform to do just that! Inspiring women through story telling.

At the core of it, I am convinced we can all be our own version of successful. Furthermore, it's WAY MORE FUN to do this motherhood thing surrounded by a supportive team. Therefore, let's enjoy the perfectly imperfect moments in The Mom Huddle!

Subscribe to share in the craziness of motherhood and feel part of our team. We definitely don't have all the answers (I mean, who does?!). Even so, knowing someone else shares moments of mom guilt and has similar thoughts and feelings creates a community. Welcome and enjoy!

Any of this sound familiar? I have good news. You are not alone. In fact, even trained pediatric doctors have similar thoughts in their own motherhood journey. Don’t believe me? Meet Dr. Nerissa Bauer. Woman,...

WOMAN, MOTHER, SALES EXECUTIVE TURNED PODCASTER

2021 BLOG SERIES- WOMAN, MOTHER, SALES EXECUTIVE TURNED PODCASTER Have you ever heard the expression if you need something done, ask a busy person? For the record, this expression embodies the spirit of our next blog feature, Margaret Weniger. Woman, Mother, and Sales Executive Turned Podcaster. Margaret and I initially met through a Linking Indy Women networking event. Her inclusive spirit and fun demeanor created an immediate connection for the two of us. However, it was during our second conversation I mentally started to tally...

WOMAN, MOTHER, POWERFUL WOMEN IN HISTORY

WOMAN, MOTHER, POWERFUL WOMEN IN HISTORY

2021 BLOG SERIES- WOMAN, MOTHER, WOMEN IN HISTORY First off, I want to talk about Women’s History Month. How many women of influence can you think of from your own life? I feel fortunate to have more than I can count. Admittedly though, my mind went to those powerful women making a BIG splash publicly in the world both now and in history. I love following Sara Blakely, for instance. So inspirational and oh yeah, just happens to be the youngest woman self-made billionaire and founder of Spanx. She’s pretty amazing! How about Serena...

WOMAN MOTHER TEACHER

WOMAN MOTHER TEACHER

2021 BLOG SERIES- WOMAN, MOTHER, ??? First and foremost, I'm excited about this 2021 blog series! The Mom Huddle was created to share our collective journeys. With this in mind, this month we'll highlight a WOMAN, MOTHER, TEACHER. Not only is The Mom Huddle a platform for stories, but also serves as a way to create understanding. A sisterhood. On one hand, we won’t always agree. On the other, I believe this is where understanding and growth happens. When we hear someone’s story and find pieces of ourselves in it, we also find...

STOP THE EXCUSES: HAVE FUN AS A COUPLE

STOP THE EXCUSES: HAVE FUN AS A COUPLE

LET'S HAVE SOME FUN! Jeremy and I started a tradition 10 years ago and it’s absolutely one of my favorite things we do for fun as a couple. KNOCK IT ALL OUT IN ONE DAY, CHRISTMAS SHOPPING DAY DATE! Shopping for your date may not seem like fun as a couple (I get it! I don't enjoy shopping typically), but hear me out... On one hand, I enjoy the check the box nature of this day. We start the day with a plan. (Insert giggles for those who know how we operate!) For instance, we know where we are going, who we are buying for, a general...
