Happily Eva After is Six!

Eva Amurri looks back at how far her company Happily Eva After Inc. has come on it's 6th anniversary

This Blogiversary always feels so surreal. The strangest part is watching in amazement as the age of HEA increases each year, the same way that my children’s birthdays tend to take my breath away. I’ve put so much into this brand and site over the years…starting from absolutely zero (with close to zero knowledge of the blogging skillset or the industry) and learning slowly, with so many ups and downs—disappointments and victories. Building Happily Eva After Inc has been the most gratifying thing I’ve ever done, because it all came from the seed of an idea, and grew into a business. Whenever I’m feeling burnt out, I like to take a moment and think back to why I started this all.

I was feeling lost and unfulfilled in my acting career. I was feeling overwhelmed as a new mom to a baby daughter. I wanted to work at something creative, something I could learn a new skill set with, and something that could potentially allow me to work for myself in an industry that is hands-down women-dominated. I knew it was going to be a long and hard uphill battle. I knew I had so much to learn. And I also knew that finally, FINALLY, I was doing something where the amount of energy and dedication I put into it would be what I got out of it.

I was ready to work hard and see what I could build. I put my head down and did it, learned, asked questions, made SO MANY mistakes, celebrated the big and tiny victories, and connected with people online by opening myself up in a way I had never done publicly before. I shared the good, bad, and ugly of my life. Of my thoughts, my fears, and my interests. I’ve gone through so much in the last six years, and mostly out in the open. It’s been a humbling, terrifying, strengthening, and transformative experience. Whenever I have felt a little scared to share something on this blog, I know that not only is it the right choice to share it, but that sharing it will help others. It’s been an honor to talk about many taboo subjects over the years, and learning that we are all more alike than we are different.

I’m so grateful for the community this blog has created for itself—It’s been such an honor to share my life and favorite things with all of you. Thank you for sharing all that, and more, with me, too.

And, at the same time that I’ve been raising this company into what it is today, I have been raising three amazing little humans right alongside it. I truly believe my job has made me a better mother in so many ways. I think all the time about how lucky I am to have so many memories with my kids in a place I can always find them. I’m so lucky I have a great excuse to celebrate the holidays, milestones, and everyday things in such fun and exciting ways with my kids.

I’m grateful that having this blog allows me to discuss some of the hardest parts of parenting and womanhood right here with you. I said the other day to somebody who had just bought a new journal “Oh, I really need to start doing that, but I’ve never been much of a journal kinda person…” She burst out laughing and reminded me that I actually have a pretty robust online journal that I let other people read! LOL.

This year has brought many changes for Happily Eva After Inc that I’m thrilled about—more employees, a product line in development, new email marketing, and partnerships beyond my wildest dreams. But, amidst all that, I hope that you still feel me in here. I hope that you enjoy the things I share and that you feel a little less alone when I talk about some of the harder things. I hope my posts have made you laugh, or given you strength or a virtual hug when you needed it. I hope that at the very least, I have brought a little bit of joy or a fresh idea of something to try to make life a bit more fun. At the end of the day, this blog IS me. I write every word. I think constantly about what interests me to create blog posts about and how I can push myself out of my own comfort zone to discuss topics that will make this online community a more welcome place. It’s so important to me to show that a modern, messy, beautiful, vulnerable, fun, and festive life is always at our fingertips. That it’s a mindset—fostered through self-love, forgiveness, joy, and a big pinch of humor. 

We can all have our Happily Ever After. It can start whenever we decide. Never forget that!

    Wow- 6 years! Congratulations to you, and thank you for always talking about the “taboo” subjects that never get enough airtime but matter to all of us in some way 🙂 My fave blog post from the past year was definitely your co-parenting update Part 4 – it was really special and encouraging to see how far you guys have come. It made me happy and hopeful for other separated couples and children of divorce to see two parents who put their kids first as they navigate the beginnings of an undefined co-parenting chapter. It was inspiring and made me so happy for your littles. 🙂

    Honestly, my favorite blog post this year was your post about meeting Ian and introducing him to your kids! I come from a blended family and it brought back so many memories from my childhood being introduced to my stepdad and integrating him into our crazy life. He and my mom have now been married for over 20 years!

  12. Oh, Eva! I’ve been obsessed with your blog forever! I remember the first post I stumbled upon was your pregnancy announcement with Major! You have built such a wonderful space on the internet; I love all the posts. Choosing one was hard, but personally my favorite was your love life update. It was so wonderful for you to share your new guy with us all and it was completely evident how happy you are!

    I really have enjoyed reading all of your posts on co-parenting. My kids are grown and I’m not divorced, but reading about and seeing how you’ve navigated thru this process is so admirable. Clearly you have great roll models in your Mon and Step-Dad, and seeing pictures of all of you together, making it work, is heartwarming!
    Cheers to many more years of HEA. Congratulations!

    Hi! Congrats on 6 years!! I can’t believe it’s been so long. I remember reading about and then making Buster’s Green Fish all those years ago. My favorite post from this year was the one about your Thoughts on a Post Pandemic World. I related so much to the subconscious and conscious feelings of fear and anxiety, and hoping that we were going to all be ok! Thank you!

Enjoy this milestone and I can’t wait to see what is next!

  26. Wow! I’ve been along for the ride since the conception of the HEA idea 💡 I remember following your journey on the gram into the married life (the details were gorgeous btw) and eventually motherhood. I feel like apart of the family & I admire your transparency on so many topics. I think one of my FAV blogs was the summer trip to Italy 🇮🇹 a few years ago. It brought back so many memories from my college days when I studied abroad. My apartment was burglarized many many years ago (before the cloud) and I lost so many photos on my lap top. I was enamored by the hotel you stayed at, the food pics & all of the beautiful beach pics with the family. That will always be one of my favorites ans shortly after you announced Mateo’s arrival 🙊🙈

    Congratulations on your milestone! I found your blog close to five years ago- when you were pregnant with Major. Your candor and the way you open up about your emotions and various life events, putting yourself out there in such a vulnerable way while also still respecting your own boundaries and privacy is so admirable.

    I gotta say….I loved the post from the beginning of the year when you confided in us all that you were dating someone new. And you were SO happy about it! Which I think in turn made us readers happy for you and the next stage in your life. The way your family has grown, shifted, and changed in this new stage is honestly really refreshing and just awesome. It’s a progressive and beautiful thing to see and I hope it becomes the norm with families.
    Thank you for breaking the mold, Eva! 😉

    Hands down I’ve most loved and appreciated your posts on anxiety, specifically Marlowe’s struggles and how you’ve been working with her. As a mom with anxiety, I’ve been super vigilant about keeping an eye in my kiddo for any signs she might be struggling, and it was just so reassuring to read another parents experience and empathy. So grateful you shared, and am so happy that Marlowe is thriving!

    Going to be honest. This is my first time reading your blogs after I saw the Haverhill’s Instagram post telling me to swipe up, but I wish I had found HEA much earlier! I just read about 3 different blogs and it’s given me so much perspective about coparenting and an amicable divorce. My absolute favorite blog is the one about being present in the digital world as I struggle with the same issue! I don’t blog or have a job requiring much social media time, but just living in these present times, I can’t help but find myself glued to my phone and spending less time with my children.

    Happy Blogiversary!

    My favorite blog post were the ones on the post breakup and how your were navigating the coparenting with Kyle, a new boyfriend and the kids. As mom, lawyer and mediator we should be educating people more on the benefits of a happy and successful breakup.
    Keep up the good work moma! 👏🏻💪🏻👍🏻

    Congratulations on 6 years! I love reading your posts and following you on Instagram. I really related to you talking about your anxiety. I’ve struggled with anxiety since childhood and it helps to know I’m not alone.

    I just became a mom of three and have really enjoyed watching your journey to three as well. Your parenting content is inspirational and challenges me to a better mom to all three of my kids. One of my favorites posts has been: “Watching My Middle Child Blossom”. Cheers to you being an amazing mama and sharing your world with us!

    My fav post is “What is Divorce Mediation.” And all the content you’ve shared about divorce/coparenting and the IG Live with Meghan Kelly. Really valuable information. Thank you ❤️

    Congratulations on 6 years! This year has been a little bit of a blur but I love your blog posts! I love your fashion sense and interior design. My favorite would have to be introducing us to your new beau and seeing how well you, Kyle and Ian get along together. I am a child of a very bitter divorce. Not a good experience!

    When you posted about Life after the pandemic it really made me realize how many people were and still are effected and how it changed so many lives. Before reading your post I felt so alone and not comfortable talking about how the pandemic took its toll out on me. Thank you for sharing your feelings and opening that door for me to talk about it.

    I truly appreciate and love the posts about anxiety (my kiddo suffers from anxiety (different than mine)), the honesty about divorce and life after, trying out drugstore brand make up, and the food!! I’m hoping to make those blueberry muffins this weekend.
    Congratulations on 6 amazing years (I’ve been following for many, and it’s been so much fun to see HEA grow and to get to grow with you)!!

    Yay happy anniversary!! Huge congrats! I really got a lot out of the post about growing your family from 2 to 3 kids. We can totally relate because we’re going through that now and it’s been a huge challenge and it’s nice to see how other people have tackled that. So thank you from Tamara.tanurdzic@gmail.com ! 💕

    DEFINITELY post pandemic feelings. I don’t have children so that was one of the most relatable I’ve come across. I really needed to see those same feelings I’ve been having written out by someone else. Made me feel better!!

    I’ve loved all of your posts about your co-parenting journey. They have been so honest and real and something I wish my parents would have seen before their messy divorce.

    Happy 6 years!

    Happy 6th birthday/anniversary!! I’ve loved so many of your personal moments and shared experiences, but the post that has spoken to me the most is “Best Friends 4-Over.” It was so refreshing and meaningful to be “given permission” to acknowledge and accept friendships change. Helped me to really look at myself and who I choose to surround myself with! Thank you for opening yourself up and sharing so much with all of us! Cheers! 🍾🥂
