Hello & welcome to Our Chaotic Mess!

As I am working to re-brand my site I have been putting a lot of thought into where I want to go and what I want to do with my site and blog. When I first started OCM I used it as more of a personal diary to let out all of my thoughts and frustrations, however, I am now leaning toward opening it up into more of a collection of topics that I can relate to and help those that are going through similar situations.

The name Our Chaotic Mess came from a night when I was sitting at my dining room table with a notebook in front of me. I was writing down words that described my life, things I wanted to talk about on my blog, and topics that I could relate to. I didn’t want to name my blog anything too specific because I didn’t want to feel stuck within that specific niche.

As you all know, or maybe you don’t if you’re new here, I am a mother to three girls – ages 11, 4, and 8 months. I homeschool our oldest two and have been doing so for three years now. I am also finishing up my bachelors degree in Human Services.. all while maintaining a house and a marriage. My life is chaotic. My life is a mess. But it’s my chaotic mess. The Our came from family. This chaos isn’t just mine.. it’s my husband’s too. So my became our and I stuck with it. This is our life and we love it.

You don’t see my husband on the blog but he does help behind the scenes so I wanted to include him in this journey here on Our Chaotic Mess.

I sincerely hope that you find something you can relate to, something that you enjoy, or something that will help you learn about something new here on OCM. Thank you so much for the continued support. It doesn’t go unnoticed.
