WELCOME: Welcome to my site! I am so glad you are here. I initially wanted to start blogging to make extra money to put away for my child’s future. As I began researching, I realized there are a lot of topics I am passionate about. What a great gift to share with others my mistakes and helpful tips that may inspire and help them in life. I am no expert but do have some pretty cool stories to share. I hope you enjoy my blog posts and be sure to check out our Etsy shop! Interested in collaborating? Head to my Contact/Hire Me tab to learn more about my background and what I have to offer!
BEHIND THE NAME: I love to make my husband big hearty breakfasts on weekends and one day I was joking that I would make him a breakfast so great, that it would be deemed worthy of a Lumberjack. At that moment, I knew I wanted to incorporate “Lumberjack” into our brand. And let’s face it, with the combination of his beard, flannels, and woodworking skills, he is basically a lumberjack.
When I think of a lumberjack, the words hard-working and determined come to mind. Lumberjacks are strong and they don’t give up until their work is done. Growing up, I remember hearing the phrase, “work smarter, not harder.” Why not both? I decided I wanted to work smarter AND harder to achieve my goals in life and it has been rewarding. Working hard and earning money is great, but the true reward for me is when someone reaches out to me and tells me my writing helped their baby finally sleep through the night. Or, when someone reaches out and says I inspired them to take a leap of faith and start their own blog or Etsy shop. People fear that they aren’t “good enough” or nobody wants to hear what they have to say. I thought that too until I put myself out there. The reward of helping and inspiring others brings me such joy and motivation to keep working hard at what I do.
MY NICHE: My niche has naturally become Motherhood. I started my blog at the end of maternity leave and I was doing so much research on how to care for a newborn that I just started writing about that. I figured if I didn’t know this stuff, perhaps there was another mom out there struggling with me. Share the love and knowledge! Along with motherhood and all things baby, I also write about the fun grown up stuff like finances, home organization and purchasing a vehicle. My husband and I also co-author DIY tutorials from his woodworking projects. There is a little something for everyone!
Thank you so much to all of my readers and followers. Your continued support and words of encouragement inspire me to keep pressing on towards my dreams.
