Hi Everyone – Thank you for visiting my blog! I’m Natosha and I’m a full-time working mom of two kiddos, ages 7 and 10. My husband Daniel (Cleveland native) and I have been married for just over a year now and recently purchased our home in Wixom, a suburb about 40 minutes north-west of Detroit.
In the small amount of spare time I have, I love to read “home” blogs. There’s something so comforting to me seeing how other people get food on their tables, clean their homes, and go about their daily lives. I guess it makes me feel like I’m not the only one fumbling through life.
However, I recently realized that *just* about all of the bloggers that I follow are stay-at-home or work-from-home moms. Now, please please do not get me wrong here. I am throwing no shade at those types of moms. My sister and best friend are both blessed with being able to stay home with their little ones, and trust me when I say I find myself jealous of them at least once a week. Just ask my husband.
The bloggers that I follow are all awesome ladies, but I feel like a lot of their content doesn’t apply to me because I work away from home. I leave the house every morning just after 8am and don’t return home until around 6pm. I can’t break my cleaning routine into small tasks every day, because quite frankly, I don’t have an extra 30 minutes in my schedule to check off one of the many areas on those cleaning lists everyone is pinning on pinterest. I can’t always get the best deals on every item that I buy because going to four different grocery stores to complete my weekly shopping just isn’t realistic for me. I don’t get in my daily dose of exercise because I wake up before everyone else to enjoy my cup of coffee in peace and quiet… you know what I’m saying. I could go on and on.
So. My point? If you’re anything like me, and you
have to work are blessed with a full-time job away from home, but still want to save on your groceries, cook somewhat decent meals for your family, and want your home to resemble a page from Southern Living magazine on an Ikea budget – this blog just may be for you. I plan on sharing my tips, tricks, short cuts, and even a few of the splurges that make my life as a working away from home mom easier, and sometimes even a bit more fun. I look forward to learning from you as we all juggle the blessings of life, one day at a time.
