Hello, I’m Brooke, a working mom and aspiring sane member of society. I love being creative, wrangling my children and sharing my story. I feel like a mad hatter because of all the different hats I have to wear on a daily basis. I work full-time in marketing and try to balance all of the great things this life throws at me. The greatest lesson I have learned is it takes a better person to be kind than to be hurtful and try to live every day with that in mind.
Currently, I am going through my biggest adventure yet: rebuilding my life after divorce and grieving the death of my other half. While it isn’t glamorous, it is mine, and I have discovered so much about myself. I am so blessed to have the people in my life that I do. Family and friends mean the world to me and I believe every one of them has played a part in who I am today. This blog is a glimpse into my life and also features everything from crafting and DIY to trying to be a mom while navigating divorce and the sudden loss of my fiance.
Nothing is off the table as I discuss the obstacles, joy, and fulfillment that comes along with this new territory. I do not claim to be a professional, but want people going through the same thing to know they aren’t alone.
I love a great cup of coffee, nachos, the color red, and a great book, but maybe not all at the same time. 🙂 I have a daughter Paige, who has a huge heart, is full of sass, and loves being creative; and a son, Gavin, who is exceptionally thoughtful, a motor enthusiast, and is full of energy. He is a special needs child who needs a little extra love and attention, but it is worth every minute I get to spend with him.
I invite you to be part of my journey and share my experiences. I am so happy to have you.
