Good Morning Sippers! If I’m being honest here, I’ve missed you and blogging and my on-line world a lot lately. With the start of school and work and all the crazy extra curricular stuff going on around here, I haven’t had ANY time to catch up with my favorite blogs or scroll through various social media outlets to see what you all are up to! I miss you!!!
That being said, I have found a new blog to help get me back into loving blogs and sharing them! You have to check out Too MOD Mom, this week’s Sunday Sip!
I am sitting at my computer drinking a House Blend KCup with a little sugar and a little milk (if I had gone to the grocery store yesterday I would have some yummy creamer but . . . ). What about you? What’s in your cup this morning, Mama?
Coffee, and lots of it! I hosted a bridal shower last night and with my daughters 5am wake up I’m exhausted!
I’m a mama, a wife, and a graphic designer based in Portland, Oregon. I blog under the alias of Too MOD Mama, mostly for the protection of my ever-so-shy husband.
How did you come up with your blog name?
I LOVE that explanation! While I don’t think that all of the “advantages” we have these days are truly advantages (sometimes I wish that technology was less important to my children) you are absolutely right that this is the world we live in and that we are doing the very best we can . . . just like those who raised their children in a totally different time!
We will be sending some readers your direction today – where should we tell them to go?
Too MOD Mama doesn’t just focus on me, it’s equally about all the other mamas out there. I have started a series of interviews of empowered mamas that everyone must check out.
Why did you start blogging? Where do you see your blog headed?
I started blogging mostly because I wanted to learn how other women were tackling this huge task of being a mother. The Interview series will drive this quest and focus on questions that I’m really curious about (ie. Paid maternity leave, sex, making time for yourself.) The blog is focused on being a strong mother by caring for yourself first. I’m not sure where the blog is headed, but for me its an outlet for writing and and learning from other amazing women.
It sounds like you have an amazing hold on what you want out of blogging and that you are well on your way to making your vision a reality!
Besides being a mama, what other things do you like to do? What makes you MORE than a mommy?
I love being a designer and that’s why I have chosen to continue to work while raising my daughter. In fact, starting this blog was an opportunity for me to concept the the look and feel of the site which somewhat drove me to start it. Beyond design I always enjoy bringing good friends together. This summer I planned my High School 10 year reunion, two bridal showers, and a wedding weekend event. It’s less about the planning details and more about everyone being together.
Thank you so much for sitting down with us today, Mama! It’s been great getting to know you better and I just LOVE the design of your site! Best of luck in all that you do!
