A little bit of coffee and a little bit of wine makes this mom life mighty fine!

I taught fourth grade for six years and was a writing resource teacher for two years. After my second was born, my husband and I decided to give the one income thing a try.  So now I’ve assumed the role of Stay at Home Mom.  My four-year-old daughter does part-time preschool and my one-year-old son is home with me. I blog to document our journeys, new adventures, and anything that really just inspires me.

I might be a teacher but I actually just really love to learn. This blog keeps me learning and exploring new things. I’ve been at it for a year and I really plan to continue it throughout my life for as many years as I can.

This is how I connect…

I’ve enjoyed connecting. I sure do love to connect! I’ve met other mommas on Instagram and through blogging. It’s so great to see them doing their mom thing from so many different parts of the world. I grab ideas and tips from them whenever I can and I hope that you’ll feel that same connection when you visit this space too.

I’m not a perfect momma or person at all. You’ll see my transparency as you read further into my posts. There are moments when I win and times when I fall flat on my face. But this blog helps me to get right back up again.

This is my story…

Teacher Mom Talks is so much like my life. It is my life. It’s the story of my life. The little menus or tabs that categorize my posts are like the filing cabinet of my life. I try to find a compartment for each small moment that occurs. But sometimes I’m not quite sure of the purpose this blog serves. I think I’m still trying to figure that out. Just as I feel we’re all kind of searching for the right purpose that satisfies us and makes us feel right.

Mothering is definitely a purpose I am so proud to fulfill. The teacher side of me still pours into this blog as I raise my kids and organize my life. Being a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend…all of these titles breathe so much joy into my life.

Actually, I feel my Teacher Mom Talks Travel (2016) podcast which later became a blog (2017) was a mission I began to find myself again. I sort of lost my identity for a little bit when I became a mom and it took me a little while to find myself again. I’m still searching…always searching for the next little adventure that will come my way.

Right now…this is it. This is my adventure. Now that I’m home, my days are filled with planning learning activities for my kids, exploring new ingredients as I craft in the kitchen, and trying out new gadgets, products, or tools that make teacher mom life a little bit more of a simpler pursuit.

This brings me joy…

There are times when I learn that my blog has helped someone in one way or another, whether it’s a momma on YouTube who needed to know more about a double stroller or another gal that said my insta stories inspire new ideas to try at home with her kids.  THIS makes my heart leap and dance!  It means so very much to me. Helping is what I would really love this blog to be about.

I explore money at times because it’s just a fun game to play. But knowing that I helped another momma out there brings me way more joy than any amount of money I could ever receive.

Thank you for being here. Thank you for being you. I wish you the best on your mom journey and I hope that our paths will get to cross over and over again.

May the adventures that lie ahead bring you joy, growth, and experiences that inspire you to be the best teacher and mom God created you to be. Have a Happy Day!
