I’m a mama to three little girls and before I had my third daughter in February of 2017 I was so, so overwhelmed. The to do lists never seemed to end. Even as a stay at home mom, I felt like I never got to really spend time with my kids. I was blogging and just spinning my wheels and I was tired.
My days consisted of cooking, cleaning, trying to run an online business, and occasionally sleep. I knew there had to be a better way. And I was determined to find it.
Then our third daughter was born in February, I went through the overwhelm of being a new mommy and my determination waned. Tragedy struck our family in May 2017 when my mom passed away unexpectedly.
I was devastated. Overwhelmed. And more determined than ever before.
I didn’t want to just spin my wheels anymore. I wanted to enjoy my family! We had dreams of spending time together on vacations. I wanted to stop being so busy and start living life!
After a while, I found the secrets to that beautiful dream I had and I’m here to share it with everyone.
Motherhood doesn’t have to be overwhelming.
It can be simple and joyful. My posts are full of tips to help that happen.

And live life a little more simply.
