Aside from spraying my life with Lysol and often feeling like a milk cow, I’ve actually been up to things outside of momming. I know, I know – it’s shocking.
Richmond Moms Blog
If you’re not familiar with the City Moms Blog Network, you should be. Until recently, I was so envious of friends who had a CMB in their area, because it serves as such a valuable resource for connecting with and supporting local moms. You can imagine my excitement when I was connected with the Richmond Moms Blog in its startup phase and was able to secure a spot as a Contributor.
I’ve loved writing for the blog so far, but more importantly, I love the friendships and connections I’ve made. If you’re ever interested reading what I write outside of this blog, you should check out some of my posts on RMB. My most recent article, Coping with a Sick Parent While Raising Young Children, is by far one of the most vulnerable and raw pieces I’ve ever published.
I rarely talk, let alone write, about my dad, so that one was light years outside of my comfort zone.
Some other (more light-hearted) posts I’ve written:
- Yes, I’ve Changed
- Making Your Marriage a Priority (after baby)
- Thriving as an Extroverted Stay-at-Home-Mom
- That One Time I Was Humiliated by My Baby (omggggg)
Rodan + Fields
If we’re friends on Facebook or you follow me on Instagram, you miiight have seen that I’ve started a business with Rodan + Fields. Roll your eyes if you must, but this has been a game-changer for me. I was nervous about what people might think of me doing direct sales, but when my first paycheck had four numbers before the decimal point, and I was going to bed and waking up genuinely jazzed about this business, I realized I didn’t care what anyone thought. Now, I want to shout about it from the rooftops.
If you’re interested in making money (like, for real) without having to have parties or inventory or tons of free time – talk to me. I can help you change your life (and I don’t mean that flippantly.)
If the business isn’t for you, you still have skin. Do yourself a solid: take this 30-second questionnaire to figure out which regimen is right for you, and then talk to me. Everything comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, so you’re kind of silly for not giving it a try.
I mean, come on:
Having a baby, starting a new business, and selling/buying/moving all within a 3 month timeframe has proven to be quite the whirlwind. Cory started a new job in October, and the commute is brutal. He’s often gone before the boys wake up, and gets home after Jack has gone to bed. It’s not a desirable situation for either of us, so after a ton of heart-to-hearts, we ultimately decided that this is the best decision for our family. I’m sad to say goodbye to this house and our next door neighbors, but I’m so excited for this new chapter.
So, yeah. That’s a little glimpse as to what’s going on IRL. Whew!
