Hey there, I’m Jamie. I’m married to my high school sweetheart, eleven years this summer! We have three boys, who are the “chaotic” in my life. The “caffeinated” is a given with all the chaos!
I’m not an average mom, and this isn’t an average mom-blog. It started that way, and you may see some recipes and DIY crafts here and there, but for the most part, all of this is me. I’m a sarcastic introvert, I love coffee and books and I have a potty mouth. I want to share my struggles and my triumphs with my snarky remarks and positive hopes.
Starting a life and a family when we were young wasn’t easy, (definitely worth it, though) and I spent most of my adulthood, up until now, being everything to everyone. And I was fine with that, until I had my youngest son three years ago. That same week, I graduated college with a bachelor’s in Accounting after eight long years and I became a stay at home mom.
While I was never diagnosed, I am positive I was dealing with depression and anxiety the first year after our youngest was born. That was probably due, in part, to postpartum hormones, but also because I went from being a busy student with two jobs, to staying home with a baby all day. I still struggle with both depression and anxiety pretty regularly, but I’ve found ways to cope now.
I have always loved to write, and used to dream of being able to call myself a writer. This blog is my first step towards achieving a dream I had once given up on.
I hope that, over time, I am able to create something that inspires others to reach for something they thought would never be possible.
Head over here for some fun and interesting facts about me!
