Hello and welcome to Mama Daring Greatly. I'm Carrie Usmar. I married a brit. We live with our 3 kids in an old cape in Rhode Island. We moved from the suburbs to the country. I often share my ridiculous run-ins with nature. I love to go on hikes, and drive around in my car searching for the next best farm field. Sunrises are my jam. I'm a quiet introvert but you can find me sharing my true colors over on instagram. I love to dance and make scary faces.
I am a writer. Never did I think I would say those words. I've been a nanny, a mommy, a photographer, a barista, a donut maker, but writer was not on the list. Over time I have realized how much it helps me process, and grow. How much it helps others feel less alone.
I continue to be brave and share. Not every day is easy. I have depression, and ptsd. And over the years I let it wear me down till I was unrecognizable. I share my journey of rising up from the darkness and finding the light.
You are worthy, You are loved, You are enough. Thank you for being here.
