Alaina Shearer and her adorbs new husband, Seth Gray.
I’ve known Alaina Shearer, aka MsSingleMama, since I started blogging 3.5 years ago. We bumped into one another at a conference, she immediately shared with me all her advice on blogging and dating, and we kept in touch through the years — including two summers ago when my kids and I crashed at her amazing, rambling yellow farm house she shares with her wonderful second husband, their four collective kids and a few animals.
In this episode Alaina and I discuss the state of single motherhood, why the world has it all wrong when it comes to moms dating, and how she went from being a blissfully single mom to falling hard and fast for the soul-mate-man-of-her dreams.
