HI - WE'RE THE HAMILLS
If you're reading this you are probably related to one of us (Hi, Mom!)
But let's go ahead with the introductions anyway.
I'm Whitney, among other things.
I'm the author of this blog. Lover of getting away & seeing new (or old) places. Cheeseburger enthusiast. Fan of the shit-show that is motherhood and family life. Admirer of people with ambition - I only have it for a combined total of 14 days a year. Writing and design are my creative jam, I don't give enough devotion to either.
I work as a part-time research assistant for an amazing work family/background screening company.
I am also wife to my hottie husband, Ian [I like him a lot] and a mother to two adorable little girls, Elize (Ellie) Marie and Layla Shay [they're okay]. We live in the suburbs of Salt Lake City.
I like talking about the hard stuff. Not because I'm deep, but because it's better material for a good laugh and because sometimes life is a hot mess.
Don't let me fool you. I love it. Marriage, motherhood. All of it. I complain a lot, I'm perpetually tired, I always look a mess, and I cry on a regular basis, but I wouldn't change a thing.
I started this blog because I needed a platform for the thoughts that find their way into my head. I don't take credit for all of those thoughts because occasionally there a few that feel worthy of sharing.
I hope the things I share through this blog find someone that can relate. I hope they make someone, somewhere laugh because they've been there too. I hope it fulfills the creative needs in myself and sparks inspiration in another.
Feel free to stick around and see where this thing goes.
***SPOILER ALERT: It's probably gonna get weird.
