Life Update- Divorce etc…
Processed with VSCO with 6 preset

Hey friends! I know, it’s been a whole 5 days since I’ve been on IG. I took a much needed break. That being said, I know I had several concerned DMs about my absence and wanted to update all of you at once.

The kids and I are doing well overall. Divorce is HARD, and messy, and at times can make you feel like your insides are being ripped out. I’ve really tried to focus on the kids when they’re home- snuggling, playing etc. We’ve had a couple melt downs but, like I said, overall they’ve adjusted. I’m amazed by their adaptability and passion for joy.

For me, I’ve been dealing with the long and arduous process of divorce while also trying to rebrand and rebuild. I will be honest and say my business has taken a pretty big hit from my divorce announcement. Several brands that I’ve partnered with in the past don’t want to work with, or associate with a single mom. Which I think is bullshit, but thats ok. I have decided NOT to change my blog or social handles for now. When I first came up with Happily Hughes it was in reference to happily ever after. After I filed I thought I couldn’t associate with that fairy tale any more. But I’m going to make my own, new happily ever after. And I honestly can’t wait to see what it brings! So Happily Hughes is sticking for the foreseeable future.

All of that being said, I need YOUR help in rebranding. Go to stories and help me decide where this little blog will go next.

    To hell with those brands that don’t want to associate with single moms. This is reality! This is life! No one sets out to get married and then divorced. But crap happens. I will follow you, read your content and continue to engage. Single, married, straight, gay, black, white ….you are still YOU!! Keep doing your thang’

    Oh, friend, I am so sorry to hear that you’re going through a divorce. I went through the process about five years ago, and it is HARD. I love that you’ve decided to keep the “Happily” handles because there is definitely happiness after the dust settles. Sending you and your kiddos lots of love and hope for brighter days ahead! <3

    I’m sorry that you’re going through a divorce. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a brake: be only for your kids and have me time. It’s great that you’re optimistic, eventually everything is going to be normal again and you’re be happy.

    Wow, brands that don’t want to work with single moms are truly stupid because of how huge that demographic is and how many more people will become a part of your audience because of it. I am sending lots of positivity and love your way!

    Divorce is tough, it’s a shame that brands are kicking you while you’re already down. I do think you’ll overcome though and will be stronger and more successful in the end!

    You are brave! Divorce is a very sensitive topic. I know it’s difficult but you’ll get pass it. Think about the kids and their future. Always look at the silver lining. Things happen for a reason.

    When life thrown you a lemonade, ensure you extract as much juice from it as you can. So with this, just forget those brands. They didn’t have you at heart in the first place and this goes far to show so. I love you and in case you need to talk about anything, I am right here for you!

    Divorce is not easy by any means let alone work related brands no longer working with you. I am sure you will find an even better set of brands that aline with your new life now. Too bad you could rebrand to happily jessica…or something close to that when you are ready. You will come out on top, I am sure of it!

    That’s awful that brands don’t want to work with you because you’re a single mom. They’re excluding a huge population which will be to their own detriment at some point, I do suspect. 🙁 Good luck w/your rebranding.
