Hi mamas! I must begin with a small confession. I'm a coffeholic. There. I said it ;) I run on Starbucks and the many simple joys I've been collecting ever since I was a little girl. I’m a North Jersey native but I’ve called five different states home in the past six years. I love my [military] hubby but I’m a homebody through and through so trotting the globe is a far [far] reach from my comfort zone! We’ve also made two tiny humans in these six years of five states and that is ultimately what brings me to our little meet n’ greet here. Mamahood has spun me around, knocked me sideways, flipped me upside-down and kicked me clear on my a** at times. I’m not always a dizzy mess, I promise, but I feel compelled to share those moments and my growth with you- moments past and the moments sure to come. I am a certified elementary/special education teacher as well as a level one CrossFit coach, but right now I am rocking the SAHM [<--stay at home mama] badge. I have high hopes for this site and the connections we will all make in moving forward from the “trenches” [as Julie and I have come to affectionately call stage newborn-three years].
