I often describe myself as a wife and a mother.
That is who I am, and those roles are important. But I am so much more than just a wife, or just a mother.
I’m a daughter, sister, friend, cousin, niece, confidante, a professional fundraiser, Sunday school teacher, aspiring writer, and coffee fanatic.
I’m a veteran blogger and Dakotapam.com just celebrated eleven years online! What once started as an online journal has become so much more! I’ve recently decided on a total blog reset. While I used to focus on family activities and preschool projects, I am now focusing on juggling the needs of a mother with demands of career and home.
I firmly believe that women can be happy as stay at home moms, AND as career women. We are all wired differently. I’ve lived both ways, but for this season of my life, working mom is where I am thriving!
I’ve been married for 22 years to my college sweetheart, and together we have six children ranging in age from 21 down to 7-year-old twins.
