I’m so glad you found your way to Almond Eyes & Chunky Thighs!
I’ve always loved writing, and this blog was formed as a fun and creative outlet. Something to do when the kids are napping. And to regain a sense of “self”, alongside my new role as “mom.”
I love my kids more than anything, but sometimes it’s good to just have something exciting for me, you know?
Plus, I truly believe that a mama who takes care of herself is more equipped to take good care of her family. So, really, it’s win-win all around.
I’m Jodi (*almond eyes*)
I’ve been married to my best friend for about 4 years.
And I have two cute little kiddos (*those chunky thighs*) <3
I’m an extroverted introvert, fueled by Dr. Pepper and cheesy chick flicks (seriously. movie night for us = my poor husband can never catch a break). I also love Disney, dark chocolate, and DIY projects. All so basic, but all so true.
My degree is in theatre and event planning – I really enjoy the behind-the-scenes work of entertainment.
But currently, I’m a stay-at-home mom, and I love love love it!
(As a sidenote, you would not believe how relevant that degree is for my life now. ;))
This is the life I always dreamed of.
From the never ending messes and exhausting tantrums, to the exciting milestones and happy giggles.
It’s far from perfect, but I’m here for it!
And I’m thrilled that you’re here too, to experience it with me!
In the blog, I plan to give a very well-rounded look into my life and discoveries!
You’ll get a little peek of basically everything, through the lens of new motherhood:
The kid stuff (obviously ;)), nurturing my relationship with hubby, our family adventures, creative outlets and self care, how faith strengthens us, improving our home, etc etc!
And the ultimate goal here – let’s form an awesome community of well-rounded mama’s!
I hope this will be a fun and safe place, where you too can feel validated in your efforts as a new mom!
And if you’re not a mom, don’t worry. Are you a mama-supporter? Great! You’re also welcome here!
I don’t consider myself an expert by any means… So I hope we can learn and laugh together, while we share the journey in this exciting thing called motherhood. <3
I can’t wait to connect with you! See you on the blog!
