Hey ya’ll! Yes…. I am from the South. (Imagine a nice Southern “twang” while reading this.)
So glad you stopped by for a visit. Are you ready to sit down with a hot cup of coffee and discuss life, food, and homeschooling? I know I am!
Before we sit, let me introduce myself. I am known as “Mama” to our two beautiful children, Thing 1 and Thing 2, but you can call me Laura. I am a former career mom converted to a coffee drinking homeschooling mom, something I never dreamed of. And I am blessed to say that I have been married to my high school sweetheart for over 15 years…..my how time flies!
As a wife and a mom of two beautiful children, life feels like a constant balancing act of time, energy, and money. This seemingly endless balancing act caught up with me and left me feeling like I was hit by that metaphorical truck. So I took a leap and left the corporate world in pursuit of a more energizing and rewarding lifestyle. I wanted our family to enjoy time with each other and experience life’s opportunities.
Being a “numbers gal” I have always been a planner and budgeter, but giving up a significant income was a definite game changer. Prior to becoming a single income family, we were on a path to early retirement and striving for a simpler lifestyle. Although I am now a stay at home mom, I still want to live simply and support the goal of early retirement for my husband. These goals have shifted my focus from the rat race to homeschooling our kids and finding financial independence.
Over our 15 years of marriage, we have dealt with our fair share of better or worse, sickness and health, richer or poorer, so now I want to share some hints, tips, and hacks so you can avoid the worse, sickness and poorer parts!
We are relatively new to the homeschooling world, but I also wanted the opportunity to share with you our experiences, handy printables and other helpful resources I come across or create. I have found other moms’ insights to be an invaluable resource, so this is my way of paying it forward.
Stick around, I want you to live, laugh and grow with me on this journey.
