As an introvert, I’ve always hated when you’re forced to stand up in front of everyone and introduce yourself. How am I supposed to know what would be considered interesting about me? I’ve lived through my entire life and it’s been pretty basic.
- I’ve lived in Kansas City for most of my life
-college in Springfield and a year in Lake Mary, FL, are the exceptions.
- My husband, Rick, and I have been married for almost 13 years.
- We have 2 boys, Caiden and Beckett, so my house is overflowing with toys (especially LEGO) and almost always a disaster zone.
- I’ve worn a lot of hats in my career since graduating from college, but that’s not really unique for a millennial.
- Including: web assistant, student advisor, assistant manager, communications specialist, public relations specialist and now web specialist.
- I’ve been drinking coffee since I was in 8th grade, and I’m a basic bitch whose favorite coffee shop is Starbucks (though there are some local places I absolutely love, too. Shout out to Hi Hat Coffee!)
See? Nothing that incredible.
So why the hell am I starting a blog?
That is an excellent question.
I don’t really have a reason other than others might be able to relate, and I just feel like sharing, I suppose. Most mommy bloggers (that term is a bit cringe, but it carries weight for SEO, so be it) tend to present a perfect picture. Their house is styled and organized to the nth degree. They wear amazing outfits that they want you to LikeToKnowIt on Instagram. Their kids never run around in their underwear refusing to put on pants, or scream at the top of their lungs as they fall asleep for a nap. Those? Are not my people.
I’ll happily be your huckleberry, provided you love coffee, don’t mind cussing and speak sarcasm fluently. Even if you don’t, we can still be cool – provided you aren’t a raging asshole.
Now, off to coffee and asking my oldest to feed the animals for the 10th time in as many minutes.
