Welcome to my journey blog! I am calling it that because that is what I am on, now more than ever before. My journey is to find out who I really am, to be happy with who I am, and to find my path.
From the outside I am a mama to two beautiful, fun, yet sometimes exasperating children. Olivia (7) and Owen (3). I am a wife to a hardworking man, Mike, who I love and have loved for half my life! I am a stay at home mom, but worked on the clerical side of healthcare before having children. I love to read, scrapbook, decorate, DIY projects (I get all my inspiration from Pinterest), anything crafty, organize (but I have a hard time staying that way), I am a planner (nothing makes me happier than planning a party) and spending time with family and friends. I am happy, love to have fun and am truly blessed in so many ways.
On the inside, I struggle. I struggle with body image, my faith and where it belongs, being a good mom and wife. I have been told quite often how people like that I am REAL, and one of my biggest pet peeves is people that are not. Life is not always peaches n' cream and I won't try to convince you that it is.
My hope for this blog is that I can journal my journey for myself and also for anyone else who can relate to all the normal things I go through. I will blog about health and fitness as I take my journey to get to a healthy weight for myself as well as to set a good example for my children. I will blog about the steps I am going take to find a religious community that works for me. I will blog about my parenting struggles and things that are working or not. I will blog about budgeting as I try to create a budget that works for our family to reach our goals.
I am looking forward to taking this journey with some new friends. Keep me accountable and I will KEEP IT REAL!!
