Welcome to my Domestic Mess!

Beginning this blog has been on my bucket list for a few years now. I wanted to wait until I had a clear focus and a clear plan for it, but like so many things in life, I have realized the real clarity may better come from doing than holding stuck in the planning phase. So here it goes, here is my blog. Welcome to my Domestic Mess!

I am a wife to an amazing man and father. I am a former SAHM, turned WAHM, to a spunky fun little girl and a superhero-lovin sweet boy. I work for an event planning company, manage our rental properties, help with hubby's marketing when called on and sell some crafty items too {BabyCakes Creations}. Seeing the love and fun my kids share with each other is one of the best feelings as a mother, and they are so ridiculously sweet with each other (most of the time...).

Life is far from perfect, but I really don't have much to complain about so I try not to very often. I strive to find the lessons in each bad day, and try hard to live in the present and stop worrying about the future what-ifs (which is pretty hard when you are not only a planner by nature, but also a true to core worrier...key word is "try"). I try to find things in each day to be thankful for, and work hard to instill gratitude and appreciation in our children.

Craftiness and organization excite me more than I can explain. My house is not always spotless...or as organized as I would prefer - sometimes I wish it were, but I try to remember that memories with my children are far more important than an orderly counter top (as long as everything is sanitary!).

The older my kids get, the more I am able to grasp hold of pieces of my once organized self - but I wouldn't trade a single even split second of their lives for the most organized home. They grow too quick and I certainly have no interest in rushing that, in fact, if I could slow it down magically I would do it in a heartbeat.

I am a holistic nutrition nut and always have been. I believe in healthy moderation over any fad "diet". I love essential oils and am amazed by them more all the time {join my FB group: Domestic Mess Essential Oils to join the discussion} or go HERE to see where I purchase mine.

Family is my number one priority. True friends are a close second. I believe in working hard, but I also whole-heartedly believe that if you don't also take the time to play, you are missing the point.

I hope you enjoy my blog, whether it follows what I envision or creates it's own direction for me to follow. If you have questions for me, all you ever have to do is ask :) Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you'll stick around.

I would love to hear from you...
