Well, hello there beautiful mama!
Welcome to our tribe of imperfect moms just trying to keep it real here on the internet. Grab your coffee (or wine!) and stay a while.
How it Started
You’re gonna laugh when I tell you that I never planned to start a blog. I talked about it, a LOT, but… I talk about a lot of stuff… and that was that, it was just talk. But then, long story short, Corey, the handsome man in the picture below, convinced me and now he can’t keep me away!
Just like life, I like to keep it interesting around here, so we cover a little of everything but always focusing on spending more quality time with your kids. You’ll find parenting encouragement and kids activities but you’ll also find things like easy recipes and even entrepreneurial tips because through these you will then have more time for your family.
No matter what you’re in the mood for, you’ll find something you love, just browse the tabs at the top or read through our most popular posts below.
A Little More About Me
I’m Alida, a total chocoholic who loves to travel with my family, get messy with my kids, spend lots of time with my hubby and soak in every moment of life.
I grew up in a rough family situation but now am happily married and mama to 2 beautiful little kids. No matter what our background, each of us has the ability to control our own happiness.
I married Corey, my highscool sweetheart. We started off in a tiny little home, saving every little bit so we could travel the world. We hit several spots in the U.S., Costa Rica, and Israel before we decided to “settle down” and have 2 kids. We still travel around the U.S. any chance we get but we’re waiting till they’re a little older to start traveling the world again. I’d love to hear your ideas on where we should visit next!
I adore my husband and my 2 kids and couldn’t imagine doing life without them, family really is the best thing! We all know being a mom is crazy tough, but their smiles and shining little eyes make it all worth it.
It used to be just me writing here but that was getting a little boring. So we added a team of writers with all different personalities, different crazy ideas and different parenting styles. With all of us it’s much more balanced and there’s now literally something for everyone to read! Whether you’re in the mood for a recipe, a craft, a date idea or maybe just an encouraging post, we got you covered. 🙂 Check out our most popular posts:
