Welcome to Mama Loves Well!
I am a mom in Texas. I have a husband, 4 kids, and a dog. I have crazy, I have chaos. You do too, am I right? Life as a mom doesn't generally have much calm. So I'm on a mission. A mission to add comfort and calm to this little gray house we call home.
This blog is my place to share tips, ideas, and information about how I have created comfort in the midst of our chaotic home.
Fun Facts About Me
I like to say I grew up a nomad. That's not strictly true, but I did live in 17 houses in my first 17 years. I call central Illinois the home of my childhood, but when I met my handsome dude and married in 2004, I moved to central Indiana. My first baby was born in 2004, followed by 3 more babies over the next 11 years.
I have spent many days slogging my way through the chaos of life with 4 kids, thinking about what I would say if I had a chance to sit down with a new mom for coffee. Then I had a few new moms actually ask me for advice. After I recovered from the shock and thought of something semi-profound (at least in my own mind) to say, I decided to actually do something to share more with struggling moms and I started this blog.
I am a "momprenuer." I run a business (yes, besides this site) from home while the kids are here too. It's a challenge but completely rewarding! I enjoy helping others learn to live clean and get healthier, and I've found an amazing company to partner with to help me do that. Looking for a way to make some extra cash? I may be able to help (email me alyssa.mcgrew@gmail dot com)
I spent 3+ years living in Bulgaria, and Eastern Europe will always be dear to my heart.
My hobbies include scrapbooking, reading, blogging, cooking, and any snatches of peace and quiet I can find. I drink coffee every morning without fail. I'm generally sarcastic, have a twisted sense of humor, and love my family more then life.
I hope you feel welcome and find something encouraging and useful here! Thanks for stopping by.
