I Surrender.

5 Reasons I Love Being A Working Mom

Sleep and personal space may be limited, but my blessings are abundant. One of those blessings is a career I love, and let’s be honest, having that career gives me the opportunity to remain a well-balanced human that is raising 5 other well-balanced humans in this world (or so we hope).

My “Must-Haves” Are All About ME.

Considering that I am always on-the-go with one or more bags, it took me a while to really nail-down the list of things I MUST HAVE on me at all times. My whirl of activity tends to revolve around my brood so I couldn’t help but smile when I realized my Must-Haves are all about me! 1) Mascara. I love wearing make-up and at the very least will spend 60 seconds doing a quick brush of mascara and brush of powder. I carry my go-pouch of make-up at all times. Some of this is basic vanity – let’s be honest...
