The modern woman feels such pressure to create a perfect life and home for herself and her family- the expectations to be a perfect wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, employee, homemaker, and even fashionista can feel overwhelming at times. Ask me how I know!

A little about me: I’m a busy mom to four young kids (both biologial and adopted), ranging in age from 4 to 11 years old. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for almost 15 years, who was diagnosed with celiac disease several years ago which was a catalyst to make major changes to our family’s diet. While adhering to a fairly strict gluten-free diet myself, I also find that I feel my best while keeping to a keto lifestyle with intermittent fasting; therefore, I plan to use this space to share all of my tips and favorite recipes for feeding a busy family with four picky kids, a gluten allergy and a low carb lifestyle. Whew!

I have a degree in elementary education, and was an elementary school teacher before becoming a stay at home mom (and now work at home mom). Somewhere in that timeline, we lived overseas in Italy for a year where my love for travel was solidified. When we moved back to the U.S., we were ready to settle down, plant roots and make a home for ourselves which is truly one of the things I find most fun: homemaking. Beyond cooking for my people, I LOVE all things home- home decor, home renovations, home organization, gardening, even cleaning hacks. Anything to make the home (and life really) more beautiful as well as functional. I also get super excited about budget fashion and beauty finds, so be on the lookout for those as well. And finally, while this is not designed to be a Christian faith-based blog, I will likely share about my faith and/or topics related to personal growth and self-care where my faith will be evident.

Over the years, I have come to realize there is so much joy in homemaking- in creating a true haven for my family and myself. While my approach is definitely more “modern homemaking,” I love learning about and sharing all aspects to help others create the same joy and peace in taking care of their homes and families. And of course helping them do it in less time and for less money (because life is BUSY). That’s the inspiration for The Curated Mom.

By sharing content that I’ve culled through and tested in each of these areas, The Curated Mom is designed to help you save YOUR precious time and money (and sanity!), and simply to help alleviate some of that pressure towards being the perfect mom. I hope to be your one stop shop for all.the.things related to #momlife!
