I've had so many new followers on my social media pages so I thought it would be a great idea to start the #MarchBlogChallenge with "A Day in the Life of Me!"
As most know, I have my two kiddos so life in general revolves around them. Typically we eat a quick breakfast, mine usually consisting of COFFEE FIRST! and then we get ready for the day. I let the kids play and watch a movie while I come into my cozy new studio office and answer emails and edit sessions.
It's been funny when people ask how I get things done while being mom/wife/homeowner and still manage to keep up with everything. I think it really just comes down to routine; the kids have learned to occupy themselves whether I have to get my editing done or photograph a session in silence. We keep a chore chart (SUPER EASY DIY, BTW!) so they help with chores and if we all get our work done quickly, we get to enjoy the rest of the day. We've been tackling some projects around the house and the kids are really into crafting so we try to combine the two. On other days, we pack a lunch and go to this awesome children's museum near our house or explore all of the parks and nature trails in the area. If we stay home, we keep it simple and play with bubbles in the backyard or bake something up in the kitchen. In the evenings, we get dinner ready and wait for my husband to get home from work and then you can find us all on the couch snuggled under multiple blankets watching movies.
The main reason I started my business was to be around my family so really, whatever we are doing, it's always focused on being together. It IS possible to do what you love while being around those you love the most!
What are some of your favorite things to do with your families? What is it that you absolutely love to do? Can you combine them?
