Ok... so on to the "I've never met a woman architect before... " blog with Michele Grace Hottel, Architect

Here are the previous posts that I have from other Mother's Days: 

So my life has changed a little from the time that I started writing this blog... which I realized how much when I noticed that I had not written a blog on Mother's Day since 2021.

I went from a woman and architect who was married with three children who were all under the age of 18, to a woman who is now a "divorced widow" as some may call it, or a woman who is now "a single mom" to three adult children, the eldest who will be turning thirty this July. As will, the same month, my architecture practice.

I, as many women say, "I never thought I would be in this position" And I can very truly say that I cannot even imagine what it is like to be a single mom with small children, let alone a single mom with small children who is also an architect. I definitely see them and I know that they are working (have worked) their hardest to be the best they can at what they do every day. 

I saw my mom as a single mom, divorced (because our father left us) raising two children and  though I lived through it and I saw her doing it, and I knew that it wasn't easy for her, like all things, "until you go through it yourself, you have no idea.  And though I would not wish the last several years on anyone, I am glad that I had the best teacher that I could have had, the woman who taught me by watching her do it, 

My Mother.

Happy Mother's Day!
