I am so glad to meet you and I look forward to connecting as only Mamas can!! I’ll start by telling you a little about me and then you can help me get to know you by commenting and interacting with the site!
My name is Renee(or Nee) as my friends and family call me! I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, and volunteer. All titles I am VERY proud to own. When I am not in front of my computer screen writing, I am working at my daughter’s school, crafting, reading, cooking, doing yoga, or starting yet another project that will ultimately not get finished for many months! Yep, I usually have a lot on my plate, but I love it and feel blessed for all that I have in my life!!!!! (Oh, yeah, I tend to overuse exclamation points in my writing, too. I hope that’s ok!! )
My family is my life. No seriously. THEY ARE MY LIFE!! My immediate family is just me, my hubby, our daughter, Lexi, and our fur daughter, Zoe. It gets bigger, though, because I have THE BEST parents, two amazing brothers(who have also given me two amazing new “sisters”), a wonderful Mom, Dad, and Sis-in-Law, and friends who are WAY too precious to be called anything less than FAMILY!!
I LOVE to write and when my writing can help Mamas like you to make it through this journey we’re all on together, I love it even more!! I love to share products and services that I enjoy and find useful, and love to hear what you think, too! I also enjoy sharing inspiration, love, and gratitude.
In addition to my new ownership of this site, I have another site that I run called, Mommaste. In case you’re struggling with the pronunciation, it’s like Momma-Stay. I mentioned above that I love yoga, right?! Well, I’m actually a yoga instructor and I end each class by bowing my head to my students and saying Namaste. In very loose terms, Namaste means ‘The good in me sees the good in you’ and so therefor, I decided that Mommaste was a good way to say that the Momma in me sees the Momma in you After all, we’re all together on this ride through life, right?!
Over at Mommaste, I write a weekly post called Thankful Heart Thursday. It’s a chance for me to share something that I’m thankful for each week and for my readers to do the same. I plan to link up to that post right here every Thursday and I hope you’ll join in on the thankful-hearted party! If you comment each week with something that you’re thankful for, you’ll be entered into my monthly gift card giveaway. The last three winners won Starbucks gift cards, so it really does pay to be thankful!!
Please click over to read my Thankful Heart Thursday post where you’ll read more about what I have planned for What Mama Wants in the coming months. While you’re there, but sure to sign up as a follower, and you can do the same on Facebook and Twitter as well!!
I am so excited to get to know you while I share all things awesome with you!! It’s going to be a great year and I hope you’ll stick with me on this journey as we discover just What Mama Wants!!
