Why Start A Blog?

I am busy. I have three kids, three and under. I certainly have my hands full (and everyone is so sweet to remind me of that when I go anywhere in public). I have a wonderful and supportive husband, many amazing friends, a great church, and the most amazing life. But, I can’t help but feel the need to do something. Do something for myself. Something creative, something that may encourage me to get out of leggings or workout clothes (#SAHM), and maybe wear makeup more than just once a week. Yes, I just put away two laundry baskets of clothes that was washed on Friday, and I have two more loads of laundry that will be done soon (laundry is my nemesis). I haven’t wiped down the counters from breakfast. And my oldest decided today would be a good day to not nap, despite my most convincing attempts, even though we will be out late tonight.

But it’s ok. Life is a little messy. If I can survive the day-to-day with these young kids, then I think I can survive a blog on top of it. Because mama needs something for herself sometimes. I know that if I do something for me, it will make me a better mom. A better wife. And a better friend.

These people. They are my everything.

  1. I’ll be here following along! Love hearing other moms share their perfectly imperfect moments. It reminds me that we’re all in this together. 🙂

  2. Good for you carving out time for yourself!! I always think to myself that I need to, but between Layton, working 40+ hours a week, house work, laundry, and cooking, I don’t know where to squeeze it in. Plus, if your like me, you feel guilty for taking those moments. Props to you for making it happen!

    1. It’s so hard to find time! And even harder to do without feeling guilty. But I just keep reminding myself that I am a better person when I put a little focus on myself. And if I can be a better mother and wife, then it is worth it to find the time! You should do it girl!

  3. Couldn’t help but lol about your laundry status, as I sit here taking a break from folding my 5 loads from Saturday… Love the idea of your creative outlet! Keep it coming!!

  4. I am not necessarily in your tribe but could be an elder. I know you have family but I am an objective empath. Been there, done that sort of , but no judgement.
    Support and love to you. I have a hard time finding time for self and spirit now! I am
    certain it is crucial and honor your awareness.
