Before I was a mother, I never quite understood the meaning of #boymom and why boy moms were so loud and proud of the fact that they...
After much deliberation with myself and persuasion from others, I’ve decided to give this whole blog thing a go. Not that I need something else to manage or give my attention to, but lo and behold, here she is. “Mondays with Michelle” … because I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, I can give my blog a little bit of love at least once a week - and let’s face it, my impulsive creativity couldn’t come up with anything better.
For those of you who know how punctual I am, shouldn’t be surprised that with a title such as Mondays with Michelle, my first post is on a Sunday. I really wish I could say I’m a day early, but I’ll be honest, I’m a week late.
I’m not sure yet what she’s going to amount to, or if we will even get to a second post. But if your political views include being patriotic and respecting others, your religious views include trying your best and being kind, and you’ve never met chips and queso you didn’t like, then hey, we just might get along. And if we don’t, so long as we can agree to disagree, feel free to chime in, give me your thoughts, share some love.
Well, friends... she's here.
Michelle is a midwestern, all American gal from the Sunflower State. Her writings are raw - they come from the heart and are inspired by real life events. She is married to an avid hunter and outdoor enthusiast, and together they are raising two girls and a boy - three under three!
Michelle documents life through a canon lens, dreams of being a songwriter, enjoys live music and dive bars, and believes in the oxford comma. She’s known for her honesty and telling it like it is - if you don’t want the truth, then better not ask her opinion. Essential parts of her life include coffee and dessert for breakfast, second-hand shopping, her girlfriends, Christmas, road trips, creativity, and themed parties. Tom Petty described her best when he sang, “She’s a good girl, loves her Mama, loves Jesus and America too”.
Michelle’s youngest brother has a mitochondrial disease. Please learn more about this disability by visiting the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation.
