Hey! I’m Kim Mayo. Thanks for stopping by. It’s so good to connect with people who love the same stuff you do.
I married the love of my life 23 years ago. Our first date was to a Colorado Rockies baseball game. We fell in love during the seventh inning and the rest is history. We have one amazing daughter and one adorable dog named Daisy. Bless my husband’s heart, there’s a whole lotta estrogen up in here!
I’m a Momma Now
I didn’t spring into existence the day my daughter was born, which I’m sure is surprising news to her. My former life included a career that was fun and a bunch of doing whatever the hell I wanted. Motherhood came a bit unexpectedly to me. After struggling with infertility, the stars aligned and our sweet girl came to us through adoption. One minute we were at happy hour and the next, we were driving across the country with a newborn.
New Budget Reality
Going from two incomes to one is no joke. Learning how to budget effectively was a process, but we have it down now (mostly). In fact, I would say we live better today than we did when I worked because I have time to DIY all kinds of pretty things and plan amazing meals, which saves a ton of money.
These Are a Few of My Favorite Things, and Then I Don’t Feel So Bad
Song lyrics carry me away sometimes but these really are a few of my favorite things:
- living in a beautiful, organized space
- cooking delicious, sometimes gourmet, meals
- feeling fabulous and put together
- finding calm and peace, even when life gets crazy
- personal growth
You have the time and energy to pursue the first three things if you practice the last two. Being the best, happiest you, makes you the best, happiest mom and wife!
As a reward for reading all about me, here’s a pretty printable for you. If you give me your e-mail address, there are more where that came from!
