Hannah Clarke

Blogger, writer, social media manager

Hannah is a wife to Phil, mum to Toby, blogger at and freelance writer at

After a decade working in special needs education her lifelong passion for writing was reignited when she decided to blog about her pregnancy. As maternity leave drew closer Hannah made the decision to give up her job and be a work-at-home-mum doing freelance work around Toby's naps, feeds and playtime.

Budding Smiles is her family journal, her little space on the internet to write about the highs and lows of day-to-day life in an honest way, with a pinch of sarcasm or a slice of cake when needed.

Hannah's loves include her family, living in the countryside, music, Tottenham Hotspur and cheese.

You can find Hannah on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram as Budding Smiles.
