About Me

Hi there! I'm Shay! Thanks for venturing to my little slice of life. I am the mama to two beautiful little girls and a wife to a hardworking, selfless guy. I currently work out of the home, full time at a substance abuse treatment center. I work with clients in an outpatient setting and will also be doing mental health therapy with individuals who have co occurring disorders (substance abuse disorders and mental health diagnoses).  This blog is a way to bring my passion of writing and connecting with others together. This blog is all about our family and how we are wading through the demands of parenthood. I also write about topics that impact parents but also touch on mental health issues and awareness.

A little more about me....

Our family lives in the suburb of Des Moines, West Des Moines. We live in a townhome that we thought we would only stay in for a few years before starting a family. Little did I know, it would become home to two littles as well! I am an Iowa State University (ISU) enthusiast, and you will find a house divided especially during football season. I am also a reality TV loving, wannabee cook and crafter and always trying to take life one day at a time.
