I was stuck at O’Hare waiting on a delayed flight. Early winter in Midwest often means delays so I wasn’t too surprised. Normally I spend that time reading a book or catching up on work emails. In my carry on I had a beautiful colorful notebook just purchased, that was asking to be filled with ideas not boring to do lists for the upcoming weekend. I was thinking about my life. My constant balancing act between pursuing my career and trying to be the best wife and mother I can be. Finding the work- life balance or what some days I call work-work balance, is not an easy task. Us working parents don’t have it easy. If you’re a stay at home parent you also have to realize it. Our lives are full of juggling, no matter how we pay our bills and who’s waiting for us at home (even if its a succulent in a pot that needs watering). I realized that I need to do a better job finding things that are worth pursuing both in work life and real life. There’s so much to learn, so many things to explore. While I’m not an expert in many things I do have a knack for connecting people and finding answers to all sorts of questions.
This blog came out of the desire to create a space where we can all find something to fill our lives with a little more. Whether you’re trying to excel in your career or manage meal planning, I hope to show you resources to get there.
