Poofy Cheeks: The Seasons Are Changing

May 20, 2016

The Seasons Are Changing

Hey guys! The seasons are changing and I don't mean from Spring to Summer. I mean my season of life is changing. As many of you know I took a leap of faith and quit my job to stay home with my babies and blog/run my shop full time a few years ago. The adventure as I refer to it has been amazing. I have learned more about running a business and myself than I ever thought possible. I have made good money and I have also learned how to stretch a dollar when I wasn't making much money at all. I can budget and hustle like nobodies business.

I feel the winds of change now. My youngest, Emmett, sitting behind me in the pictures is going to turn two next week and I have decided I want to go back to working outside the home. I will still blog and run the shop but on a much smaller scale. My patience has taken about all it can handle and with a three-nager and terrible two running around (plus the two big boys 7 and 8) there are days when I daydream about running away. Not really. but really.

I have an interview on Monday so send all the good vibes you can! I am scared and excited all at the same time although I am using this a way to make blogging more enjoyable for myself again. I have taken on more paid sponsored posts than I sometimes wanted to make sure I could put food on the table and I want to get away from that. I want blogging to be as fun as it used to be. I want to be the realest me and newsflash the real me sort of curses like a sailor - consider this your warning. I have recently submitted some of my humorous mom and wife rants to bigger sites lately and it has been fun. The words come more easily. I had to write a 2-3 sentence bio for one of the submissions and I wrote,

'Hey I'm Kelsey and I write at Poofy Cheeks. I'm a mom of 5 (which includes my husband) and we live in hotter than hot Central Florida. I am a perfectionist but far from perfect. I'm learning to embrace all the imperfect things that come along with parenthood. Follow me HERE.'

So basically that is where things are headed if you get my drift. I haven't shared an updated picture of myself in a while so I posted the one above. It was a rare occasion when my gray hairs weren't front and center and I actually had a bit of makeup on. You can't tell but I was still probably dressed in my dirty yoga pants and favorite Old Navy flip flops because that has become what I live in these days. Prayers I get a job so I can wear big girl clothes again!

I will keep you all in the loop but bon voyage for now. We are headed to the beach for the weekend and I have packing and laundry to finish.. while my husband gets out if it by going fishing with friends. (Insert emoji with the beady WTF eyes).
