So here’s the deal. I’m Maria, and I started Adventures of the Mommy Homemaker over 6 years ago. It has grown into a self-sustaining business, and for that, I will forever be grateful. The truth is, I never fit into the “Mommy Blogger” scene. Sure I helped raise my three stepsons whom I adore, but really I’m not a mom. I’m a grieving mom. I’m a mom in waiting. I’ve suffered losses, midterm losses, early losses, chemical pregnancies, failed IUI’s, failed IVF’s. So truth be told, I’m not a mom. But what I am – what I am is a woman trying to make her path in this God forsaken world filled with so much fakeness. I’m tired of it.
I’m tired of the fake happiness we have to portray, showing off “the perfect family,” and I’m tired of taking the perfect selfie. HELLOOOOO! I’m far from perfect. I’m an overweight thirty-something-year-old woman with PCOS, infertility, and a myriad of other health problems that I’m working on constantly – daily.
Blogging For Myself, and You
So here I am eight years later starting a new blog. I haven’t abandoned the other one, not at all. But here you’ll get to see and get to know the real me. I’m brash and I’m rash, sometimes quick to judge – even myself. I’m blunt and sarcastic, and sometimes I’m even funny. I make mistakes, and OMG my food pics suck. No, really they do. I usually end up standing on a chair on full zoom at a slightly 80° angle just to get an “okay” one. But I’m keepin’ it real folks. You may see a few cuss words here and there. I’m holding back a little on that one – I can honestly make a sailor, trucker, and a construction worker blush on a bad day.
I want to re-introduce my passions to you – to my readers – to the world. There are so many passions that I have, and they’re probably the same ones that you have. I love to cook, bake, and to write – which is what brings me here. I want to write just to write. Just to free my mind. You’re not going to find any frills here, only truths.
I invite you to follow me on my weight-loss and fertility journeys. Blogging advice, PCOS facts and anecdotes, and whatever else I feel like ranting about. I’m pretty sure there will be some reviews here and there, but this is going to be mainly me and you, if you’ll have me.
