About Emmy

Hello and welcome to my blog! I’m so glad you are here. I’m Emmy and I’m a single mother of two teenage boys. We live in small town Virginia with our six pound, half bald Chihuahua.

I have spent a lot of time just going through the motions of life. Not only have I not taken time to really live in the moment, and fully appreciate everything I have, I have played very small in my personal development. I’m one of those moms that tells their children they can be anything they want…but who hasn’t believed that for herself.

After a bankruptcy, and then getting into debt again, I sort of hit bottom. I heard my son laughing from another room, and realized I couldn’t remember the last time I really laughed or just had fun.

Time for a change right?

If you’ve arrived here, then perhaps you’re in a similar place of feeling like you let all of your dreams pass you by, and that you’ve made choices you wish you could undo. I’m on a mission to prove that every day is a chance to be happier. Every day you can make a new start. I hope you’ll join me!

Emmy Smith is the founder of emmycaitlin.com, a lifestyle blog dedicated to showing people how they can take small steps toward being happier every day. She writes about getting out of debt, finding new ways to earn or save money, live a simpler life through embracing minimalism, and parenting teenagers. She is open to partnering with brands to provide her readers the tools they need to make changes in their own life. 

Emmy is a single mom of two teenage boys, living in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. She is a technical writer for a small local business, and writes training materials for computer software applications. She also takes on freelance writing projects and hopes to one day work entirely from home providing great content for others.

Emmy has recently discovered that you can’t tell your children that they can be or do anything they want without showing them that example. She has made a decision to change her life in order to prove to her kids that it really is never too late to go after your dreams, or life life on your own terms.

Emmy believes that each day is a chance to start over, and that we need to take time to appreciate all that we have. The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more will return to you, and emmycaitlin.com is a place for people who want to make that happen in their own lives.
