I’m Jamie, an eternal optimist and a hopeless sarcastic. At this stage in my life, I identify mostly with being a Mom to three boys who are mostly perfect…except when they are tired, hungry, or it’s a Tuesday. After 7 years of being pregnant, sleep deprived, nursing, or some combination of all those things- let’s just say I’ve let some things slip!
I lead a perfectly imperfect life that I love, but I’m not blind to the fact that I’m also a giant train wreck. I have dreams of the storybook existence I will live in someday- an icon of organization, an effortless cook and host, a pillar of health and fitness. And I’m on my way for sure as I have roughly a zillion Pinterest boards on how to get there! The crapfest my life has become since I started popping out kids has put a bit of a crimp on my journey, however, now that they are getting older I’m taking back control! I want to organize, clean the yuck from my house, figure out where all our money disappears to each month, ditch the baby weight, and maybe do one of the 8 billion art projects with the kids that I’ve pinned online.
I’ve been a devout follower of the 80/20 rule, and while balance is important- that 20% has slowly turned life into a chaotic sprint fueled by sugar and carbs. I believe in not taking yourself too seriously, eating real food, getting enough sleep and water, Marie Kondo and pre-felon Martha Stewart, laughter as medicine, and exercise. I currently do exactly none of these things, so this blog about self-improvement should be interesting.
