Welcome to Makeovers & Motherhood!
Or maybe I should have said “welcome to the hot mess mom club” because let’s be honest… there is always a part of our life that we are striving to do better. Which is how this blog got it’s name, Makeovers & Motherhood, because sometimes we just need a makeover. Not a physical one. Well, who wouldn’t love a little lift and tuck. But rather a makeover, a redefining, a fresh start to some of the messy areas in our life.
And you know that life can get messy!
Sometimes it’s a literal mess… like a disorganized closet.
Sometimes it’s a stress mess… like “How on earth did I schedule 3 things at the same time?” or “None of my home décor flows and it’s making me crazy!” and then back to “Why are my closets so disorganized?”
Sometimes it’s the mess we’ve gotten into with our food choices or how sloppy some of us get in the kitchen.
And then… there is the mess of motherhood. It is an emotional, hair-pulling, awesomely and amazingly beautiful mess! We all know there is no way to parent perfectly. But some days, when we feel like we’re drowning in a sea of crayons, Goldfish, sibling rivalry, and tween attitudes, we just need to know we’re not alone in the trenches of parenthood. Sometimes we need hope that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, that the tantrum won’t last forever (although the last 10 minute tantrum felt like an eternity). And sometimes we just need to be reminded to stop and marvel at the stage our children are in right this very minute.
Makeovers & Motherhood (MO&MH) was created to be your “village”. A place where we can makeover our hearts and home, and encourage each other along the way. A place where you can be the eccentric, crazy fun, a little off color mom that you are and can feel safe knowing that we’re all in it together. We’re all striving to have simpler lives, happy homes, and to be the best versions of ourselves.
