Hello Firefly! Thanks for visiting. There is no doubt that being a mom is rewarding, we love our kids and want the best for them, but what about mom (you)? We not only have to juggle A LOT, but we need to love on mom (that’s you) too! This blog is to help us, mamas, be an amazing influence on our babies, yet still pursue our own personal purpose. One way to do so is to simplify. At Simplify Firefly, you’ll learn how to make life a little bit easier in self-care, family topics, and findings in money and personal development. Get ideas. Be entertained. Feel loved. And achieve your goals. 

Besides the blog here are a few extra things we have for you:

Who am I? I’m a gal who wants to be an amazing mom, to live simply, and to make an impact. What do I do? I share what I learn, provide encouragement, and I love on people. I have a passion in finding balance between my own life goals and being a mother. Some days live in harmony, others fall short. Yet, the more I learn about myself and my child, the better the music we play.

My husband and I have a son and a dog (daddy’s girl). I’m super passionate about wellness and quirky creative projects, and my husband is passionate about helping people manage money. Seriously, he’s a maniac. He also loves to camp. On a side note, I can be pretty transparent… for instance, I have autoimmune disorders, so when I’m talking about food or health stuff, it’s because I’ve lived through them and want to share what I’ve learned to help you either avoid issues or to help your family. Also, and you better believe it, that if I go through something amazing or hard, I’m going to share about that too. I want you to have an amazing life, to shine your light and to achieve your goals. And by golly! I’m going to tell you about the stuff that has worked for me so you don’t have to learn it.

For starters, one of the things I’ve learned in the past few years is that the small things in life are the most powerful AND life-changing. And gosh, it’s those simple things that act like wings for the fire within us. Just by organizing a few things has given me more time to work on my own goals. 

You know the old saying, “less is more”? It took me years to finally let that sink in. I didn’t understand how messy my life was until I realized that 80% of my lifestyle was managing my clutter (seen and unseen) and 20% of it was actually living and being present. Since my epiphany of living in disorder, my goal has been to fill-flop those percentages and to simplify my routine. I’m getting there, and I hope you would join me on this journey too.
