Hey there, I’m Taylor!

I’m so happy you’re here! I started Positively Taylor when I was pregnant with my son, Matteo. I was looking for an outlet where I can share all things pregnancy related and eventually give tips on this wonderful adventure of motherhood!

A little bit about me.

I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in two other states in my twenties- California & Pennsylvania. I have now moved back to the Chicago suburbs with my husband, Adis and our sweet golden retriever, Obi. In October 2021, we welcomed our first child, our baby boy!

Adis and I have gone through so many experiences together and we are so thrilled about this new chapter in our lives! 

In 2018, I started my blog The Shadows and Sunshine to discuss our journey of moving away from home. It has since turned into a personal growth blog and personal growth is a topic I am extremely passionate about!

But when I initially started that blog, I wanted to discuss EVERYTHING- planning our wedding, house hunting when the time came, and starting a family. I shifted my focus for that blog but decided I still had a lot more to say about everyday lifestyle, and that is how Positively Taylor was born!

I absolutely love to share our day-to-day life and the experiences we’ve had. Why? Because I know there are other people, like you, who can relate! 

The goal for Positively Taylor is to grow a positive community for new moms to lift each other up and help each other navigate pregnancy and motherhood.

Thank you for being here, Mama! I hope you enjoy this blog as much as I enjoy writing it for you 🙂
