If you asked me when I was 5 what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have told you that I wanted to be a stay at home Mom. Ask me again when I was 10, and you would have received the same answer. When I was 18 I started to wonder if that was ever going to be a possibility, although it was still my dream. As I became more aware of the real world and the demands/responsibilities an adult had to take on, I feared that I would have to put that dream aside and work outside the home to be able to provide what I thought were necessities for a growing family. I wasn’t even dating anyone serious or thinking about having kids any time soon; but the fear was still there that I wouldn’t be able to live out my life long dream of staying at home once I had kids. 

Mom of 2 kids

Years down the road and many stresses, compromises and changes later, I had 2 kids and finally got my dream of being a stay at home mom. But I still had the fear that I wasn’t helping to “provide” the things my family needed/wanted financially. That’s when this blog changed my life!

Starting this blog was a hobby and started more as a fluke, I didn’t know it could fill that financial void I felt. I feel like it has become everything I ever wanted and it brings out the best of me. Yes there’s stress, yes I get sucked into the “I’m not as good as..” mentality, but It has also allowed me to be creative on a daily basis, it allows me to have experiences I never would have otherwise and most importantly, it allows me to be home with my children.

Love Will

I get to wake up everyday and snuggle my kids, play with them during the day, help them with their ever growing knowledge of the world, take them on adventures that will create lasting memories and see them grow up to be the amazing human beings they are today.

Crazy Mom Life

Life is constantly CRAZY, fun and an ever changing challenge. But this is what I always dreamed of, and I always will. This is MY American Dream.

Happy Mom
