Zero to Hero…. Day 1

Okay, so I am going to do this Zero to Hero challenge, AND try to keep up on my other stuff. Lets see how far, and how long I will be able to keep this up. With everything else going on, it seems like I might have bit off a bit more then I can chew and it is only day one. Not exactly the best footing to start this off, but every journey starts with one step (or post in this case). Here is my first step:

The challenge today is to write and publish a post on, “who I am and why I am here”. On the surface this is an easy one, but very challenging for me because, for me, this blog is helping me figure out who I am (aside from mom and wife).

I am a stay at home mom to three beautiful little girls, whom I choose to homeschool. I am a wife to an amazing husband, whom I would follow to the moon and back. I try my best to be the “perfect mom”. AKA my blog title. It has taken me a decade or so to realize that there is no such thing the perfect mom. That the perfect mom is a myth, a legend, a fairy tale character. I have come to realize that the perfect mom just cheats better. So part of this blog is set up for easy crafting type projects, that are super fast but will make you feel more like (or appear to be, if that is important to you) the perfect mom.

Aside from mom and wife, I am a make up artist. This part of me gets put behind my other duties. I am setting up part of this blog to be dedicated to makeup, dedicated to the girly side of me that I love so much. Whether that is reviews of products that I use, or tutorials (at some point I promise to get these up) on various looks that I like to create. This part of my blog, not only will hopefully be entertaining and informative to readers, but will help me carve out a little space for me to be me apart from mom and wife.

So I guess that sums up who I am, and why I am here.
