Mama Ladyhood

Hello and welcome! My name is Tessa and I’m a 20 something living in Madison, Wisconsin with my husband (Brian) and son (Benji). This space is where I share my journey through mamahood.

A little about me: I went to school to be a graphic designer and I work at a studio by day. Besides being a mama, I enjoy kayaking, exploring my city with friends, and sketching letters when Benji is napping. The one thing that ties everything together is my faith. I attend an evangelical free church in Madison and I consider myself a devoted Christian. 

My family: On April 29th, 2018, I became a mama to a sweet little boy named Benji. Read his birth story here! I’m married to the love of my life, Brian. Our love story began in college and he is the greatest human being. We’re also bunny parents to an adorable (and sometimes moody) dutch rabbit who was rescued from the local humane society. Her name is Isadore, but we call her Bunny. 

The name: It comes from the nickname Brian and I have for each other. A few years ago, we started calling each other “Lady”. That’s right, I would call him Lady. It has become so natural that I rarely say his real name anymore. So when we’re in public, that’s what I call him. I do admit, it’s a little strange. 

Thank you for taking a look around! Feel free to reach out by emailing hellotessamichelle@gmail.com.
