Carrigan’s Joy was created in 2008 when I first discovered I was pregnant with my daughter. This blog has captured moments from two pregnancies, natural, un-medicated childbirth, postpartum depression, evolving then into a more recent fitness blog, sharing my journey as a Mamavation Mom Graduate, my love affair with running, and my slight obsession with weight lifting and nutrition.
As a teenage Mother, I understand obstacles and life challenges, yet I completed high school and then continued on to receive three college degrees, my most recent being a Master’s Degree in Exceptional Education.
Through my experiences, Carrigan’s Joy is able to share real life stories, struggles, growth, and persistence that an audience can relate to. Life is certainly not easy, nor did anyone say it had to be, but through it all, we continue to move forward, sharing along the way and remembering to take moments to witness the beauty from within.
