This blog

I'm starting this blog to share my thoughts and experience as a homemaker with whoever would like to follow along. And yes, I have an MD. That's another story, a long one, which I'll tell you later. But suffice it to say that gives me a unique perspective on being a full-time homemaker. I call myself a homemaker rather than just a "stay-at-home-mom" because I feel that it better describes the entirety of what I do everyday. I am making a home, a refuge, an escape, a learning center, a safe haven, and it not just for my daughter--it's for my husband too! Calling myself a "stay-at-home-mom", though there is certainly nothing wrong with the description, just doesn't include the fact that caring for my husband is my calling, too!

I love what I do everyday, more than I loved even when I was practicing medicine, and I enjoyed that, too. Perhaps one day I will return to medicine. Probably I will in some way. But for now I'm in a season of life where I believe this is exactly what I am called to do.

So if you'd like to hear my opinions (they are like armpits, everyone has them!), advice (but consult your own doctor and don't take what I say in place of that), experiences, and thoughts, then follow along.
