Hello Friends

Can I get a quick second of your time? I know it is precious, so I will be quick.

You are beautiful, talented, amazing and simply the best at being you. NEVER. FORGET. THAT.

Sometimes we just need a few encouraging words to get us through our day. Am I right?! Or am I right?!

If you are taking a moment to yourself I invite you to take a look around. Check out my first blog post to learn a little about who I am, the blog and don't forget to subscribe so you don't miss out on all the fun stuff! That's the same thing "they" told ya about having kids too. Who is "they" anyways?

If you are just taking a quick second between errands, to do lists, kid pick-ups or drop-offs, and the thousand other things us mommas are doing in our day, I encourage you to save this page and subscribe. I know what will happen later. You will get home, sit down to relax, remember that blog you stumbled upon and say, "what was that blog name again?" Or is that just me?

We are totally friends now! That's not to weird, right?

just wingin' this mom thing

Spilled milk, oatmeal covered faces, forgotten permission slips, and endless piles of laundry... surviving on coffee, sporting a messy bun and leggings.

Mommin' hard - ALL DAY, EVERYDAY!!

Being a mom is hard, amazing, special, crazy and rewarding... just go ahead and throw every emotion known to man into a blender and that is what it is like to me a mom. I have no freaking idea what I am doing most days, I am just wingin' it and praying my kids turn into responsible human beings one day. You with me on that one?

We are all in this mom thing together and it can feel lonely. The great thing about social media is that it has brought out all these "mom struggles" and has allowed us to be like, "OMG... I thought my kid was the only one who did that! I am not alone! I am not the only one on the crazy train!" However, with the good comes the bad aka MOM BASHING. I want to create a space for all moms to come together, free of the fear of mom bashing. This is a zero tolerance zone!

What will you find here?

I am on this journey to being more intentional with life - money, time, possessions, family, faith, and friendships. I am by no means perfect and I make A LOT of mistakes. At the ripe age of 30 I am still trying to find myself and where I belong in this world. Yes, I am a mom. Yes, I am a wife. Yes, I am a daughter, sister, and friend. I don't ever want to down play the importance of my purpose in those roles... however, I KNOW I have an unfulfilled purpose out there.

I love to share on Facebook and Instagram about the "wins" and "struggles" in my life. In fact, my husband's friends always joke, "Your wife is telling the whole world about your life again." What can I say? Some days I just need an outlet. However, Instagram likes to limit my words to like 2,200 characters. SO... I figured why not start a BLOG!!! I have no intentions of using this page as a diary but I will share things in my life that maybe you are like "ME TOO!!!". That is my goal, to have a lot of "me too" moments because I want this to be a place for all moms to come together, a place to find encouragement and remember NO mom bashing!

I will be sharing around these 5 areas: faith, family, wellness, self-care and intentionalism (yes, I just made that word up). Like I said before, I am not perfect and I am sure this blog won't be perfect either... let's just face it there was only ONE perfect person to walk this earth and it ain't me. Need a place to not feel alone? A place to find encouragement? A place to find the occasional recipe and DIY project? Momma, this is THE PLACE FOR YOU!!!

Mommying is like sailing on choppy waters. There are highs and lows, with feelings of nausea and unsureness. Yet the journey is breathtaking and full of heartwarming moments.
