I’m a stay at home mom to a beautiful little girl. Once upon a time, I went to school to study children’s psychology/special needs and elementary education. After earning my teaching certificate we ended up deciding to become business owners and opened up a speakeasy style bar in our home town. This keeps my husband very busy as the business is still fairly new. I wish he didn’t have to work such long hours but at the same time, I am very grateful to have such a hardworking husband. I never wanted anything more than to be a great mom and I feel very fortunate to be able to stay at home with our little girl.
As I am learning and growing as a mom, I’m also discovering that it’s important to not forget my own needs. Being a mom is amazing and being a wife to a terrific husband is amazing as well but I’m realizing that I need to have my own identity. I don’t ever want to stop learning and growing as a person. As a mother and a wife, it’s easy to become so involved in these roles that we forget to take time for ourselves. I need to have a creative outlet and find ways to use that to enrich my life and my family’s lives as well. I would like to share how I put some of my creative energy to use in my everyday life as a mom and help others to do the same.
