I am Callie. I am a mom, a counselor, a wife, and I really love being all 3. The best thing about being a mom, is that it has changed me in ways that I never thought possible. My life will forever be different, defined by someone else, never again my own.
I have an amazing husband who loves and hates how honest and forward I am. And he is constantly reminding me that not everyone thinks like I do and not everyone wants to know what I think (although, I think he’s wrong). He has the patience of a saint, loves me for all of my faults, and laughs with me… and only laughs at me when I deserve it.
I have a wonderful and fulfilling job working with children and families who just need a little help making transitions and changes in their lives. Working with my clients and watching them change and grow helps me to be a better person and, ultimately, a better wife and mother.
He is the most rambunctious and loving toddler you will ever meet. He came out running at 90 miles an hour and hasn’t stopped. He smiles bigger and screams louder than I ever knew possible. He has taught me how to be stronger, smarter, cautious, and forgiving. I love him to the moon and back.
He is the newest addition to our clan. He is a really awesome baby who laughs a ton. He is so chunky and squeezable and is a pretty chill baby most of the time. He’s basically a rockstar.
We live in North Carolina and LOVE it! I am a Tar Heel to the core. I use my southern roots and love of family to guide me in my daily life and help me to build and maintain my relationships.
My goals for this blog are to 1- have a creative outlet for myself so that my husband doesn’t have to hear me talk about the same stuff over and over again. And 2- provide a place for moms like me to hear that it is okay to be honest about all that comes with being a mom. The good and the bad… and know that it is okay to say what you are feeling and thinking out loud. Or you can simply type it and send it out into the universe and someone will respond. Let the honesty begin…
