Welcome to The Simple Life! First let me introduce myself. My name is Bethany. I’m a stay-at-home mom. I have the most wonderful little boy, Theo, and I’m married to the love of my life, Michael. Now that the introductions are done let me explain a little bit about my blog. I started this blog as a way to keep my mind active and busy. Being a stay-at-home mom I don’t get out much so I don’t get much social interaction. I’m taking care of my little man all day, which I love but after a while my mind goes numb. So in an effort to keep it working (essentially working out my brain) I’m creating this blog for that purpose. I’m not a very out-going person so the fact that I’m making this very public and putting my life out there for the world to see is making quiver inside.
Why did I choose the title The Simple Life? The answer is simple (no pun intended). When I think of my life I don’t think of it as anything extraordinary. My days consist of waking up, taking care of Theo, Michael and the house and just trying to make it through the day before I crash land in my bed at the end of the night. I don’t get out and about much so most every day of the week I’m at home. Though my life may seem like a bore I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Truth is I love being able to take care of the two men in my life. Nothing brings me greater joy. It warms my heart to be able to cook a meal that Michael loves and to cuddle my little man when he’s having a bad day or is just in need of a cuddle. I like being there for Michael, encouraging him when he needs it and being his cheerleader through life. This is why I chose the title The Simple Life. So join me in my simple life.
