1. What site do you visit online to find encouragement or inspiration?
Encouragement: I like to read the words of women I’ve met in real life, like Jessi & Jami. I’m a also a link-clicker more than a regular blog reader, so whatever’s going viral that week… I’m probably being blessed by it, too!
Inspiration: I like scrolling through blogs by mamas of large families, like James and Rubyellen. They help keep me grounded and refreshed by the idea of keeping house in a way that makes me proud, while still tending to the needs of several kiddos.

2. What is one piece of advice you wish you had known as a new blogger or online-business woman?
I can’t think of anything that I wish I’d known from the beginning of blogging. I think staying vulnerable and flexible is important. This allows you to adapt and learn and change under the public eye, without too much work or embarrassment. I hope that makes sense!

3. What has surprised you most in this life? 
My family life has definitely taken me by surprise. I didn’t ever have a really clear or strict vision for where I saw myself after high school, but six kids by age twenty-seven definitely didn’t make its way onto my binder doodling!

4. How do you refresh when you run out of ideas or creativity?
I don’t feel like I’m ever brimming with creativity or inspiration. I’m not very artistic or crafty, and a lot of things on Pinterest or DIY blogs only serve to remind me how challenged and short on time I really am. I keep my phone on me at all times, for post ideas that I’d like to expound upon later. I flip through the above-mentioned blogs when I have time, and I really just wait. I try to never force ideas or content. Maybe that’s why I’ve been able to blog for nearly ten years without getting too burnt out?!

5. What is one thing you love about yourself?
Why on earth do I have to answer this question? It’s incredibly hard for me to toot my own horn, because I’m such an easily-embarrassed person. I do pride myself on my ability to think quickly and get things done efficiently… this includes my career as a nurse and my role as a wife and mother to a large family. I’m also thankful I have long hair with an ever-so-tiny amount of wave, because I’m too lazy to style it and I pretty much just like it the way it is. No plans to cut it anytime soon.
