Ditch Perfection, Embrace the Real & Find Joy
I knew how to live my best life as a professional woman and wife in my 30’s. But, living your best life as a mom is a totally different ballgame. Honestly, the fog of motherhood was overwhelming me, and I got lost. I wasn’t living my best life. In fact, I was being consumed by it. It took a lot of getting real with myself to figure out how to create a NEW life that I love.
Real Mom Nation gives a voice to the challenges of living your best life as a mom and provides helpful tools to achieve what we all want: an authentic, unfiltered, whole hearted life that’s NOT perfect but real and filled with joy!
A little more about this Real Mom…
I am a recovering attorney turned stay-at-home-mom with all the baggage and trappings that come with it, and I LOVE exploring this side of motherhood. If you’re knee deep in your own journey to find that work / mom-life balance, check out Stay at Home Moms Deserve Happiness and Etsy + SAHM = Mompreneur.
Health bombs have abounded over the last 5 years in our family. From the discovery of food allergies in my kids, My Kid Has Food Allergies. Now What?, to my husband’s unforeseen cancer diagnosis, When Your Husband Gets Cancer. It has definitely not been easy. But, I’ve got an arsenal of take-aways that will hopefully bring you comfort and connection if you’re sorting through your own crises.
For two years now, I’ve been navigating my way through mindful parenting and the mound of self-reflecting that has come with it. This process has brought so much joy back into motherhood for me. AND, it has helped me find some serious balance along the way. My posts, A SAHM’s Quick Guide to Meditation, Meditation: #1 Parenting Tool, or How Listening to my Kids Changed Everything are great introductions to some simple techniques that mindful parenting has to offer.
Finally, so much of my mom world revolves around food! Finding new ways to get REAL WHOLE FOODS into my family’s diet is a huge passion of mine. Check out these two recipes that are amazingly painless ways of feeding your family the good stuff: Skinny Chocolate Elvis Smoothie Recipe and Old Bay Ranch Dip: Your New Go-To for Veggies.
