As a dedicated wife of one, mom of three, leaving corporate and coming home was the biggest project I’ve ever taken on. My college degrees, and experience as a professional engineer, in no way, shape, or form prepared me for my biggest task as a home maker. Dinner planning, laundry management, budget stretching, home cleaning & maintenance, early childhood education, and the like, all became topics of interest out of desperation & a heart to care for family well.
Beginning with two incomes, decreasing to one, adding family dynamics, is a sure fire way to create a challenging financial benchmark! In doing so, I’ve learned shopping strategies, spending forecasting, saving money by cooking, and offsetting clothing & home décor cost with my acquired sewing skills.
Former, engineering life was evaluated through project performance; which made me feel confident & well supported. As a mom, creating daily systems which encourage efficiency & ease, opens up the opportunity to feel lifted and energized in the mundane.
The children are all in school, now; it’s a different stage of mothering, versus the ‘diaper days’. I’m blessed to be a SAHM, wife, and aspiring entrepreneur; still ‘nesting’, lover of DIY, the DE-cluttered life, sewing for my girls and creating systems which bring ease & energy to on-the-go family living!
