The Accident

I was never suppose to be ‘domestic’. I had every intention of never settling down anywhere, ever. I was to be wild and adventurous till the end of my days! Instead, I met this amazing guy and fell utterly in love with him and my whole world changed.

Several years later, we’re married, I’ve made it through massage school, we have three daughters, I am finally working in my profession again, and my husband finally gets to go to school for a degree. By this point I have become almost a master of budget meal plans, crafting fun for those boring days, creating amazing birthday parties, crocheting decorations, and knitting lots of accessories. I had become ‘domestic’.

The realization rubbed me a little raw, but I love being there for my family. I would not trade any of this crazy mess for a life of travel. I like to share all these things that I do and learn from others who do the same.

So, one day I was describing all the Alice in Wonderland Halloween costumes I was crocheting and knitting for my family and a friend called me a “domestic goddess”. It made me stop in my tracks. Instead of feeling chained to my ‘domestic’ duties, I felt empowered by them. That slight shift gave me a new way of looking at my life and the ability to embrace where my path has led me.

This blog is to share the things that bring me joy with others and help inspire others to be their authentic selves.
