What are your hobbies?

This question, more than any other, has had me stop in my tracks so many times since becoming a mother. What are my hobbies? Well...I don't know.
The day I became a mother - April 9, 2013
I'm not sure people consider the things I do day-in and day-out hobbies. You know? The wake up, feed the children, wrestle them into clothes, clean-up spills, change diapers, change more diapers, kiss boo-boos, clean toilets, work full-time, laundry, putting laundry away before it becomes what children would consider a pile of leaves to jump in...

You see my point. After I became a mother I found myself asking back, "Who has time for hobbies?"

It's easy to allow life to consume you. I let it on most days. But there are those times when, miraculously, the house is 'clean', the dishes are handled, and the laundry is managed. When that happens my question becomes, "What now?" What am I supposed to do with my time now that there's 'nothing' to do?

This blog is a place I hope to find the answer to my "What now?" and their "What are your hobbies" (whoever they may be).

My babies and Husband are my world. I love them more than anything else on this Earth. I never want this to be a distraction from them. But I do want to continue to develop a different side of me - whatever that side may be.

This blog is me stepping out of my box. I will no longer accept that I'm 'not crafty' or 'not good at cooking'. I'm saying goodbye to telling myself I can't sew or DIMyself (you see what I did there?). It's never been that I can't and always been that I've never let myself try.

I'm ready to explore who I once was and how I can tie that woman to the woman I am now. I never want to be pre-Morgan again because the now-Morgan is a much more experienced version, but I think somewhere along the way I forgot that pre-Morgan was also a pretty fantastic person and that she still has a lot to offer the world. I also think that future-Morgan may be pretty great, and I can't wait to meet her and see what she's done with this space.

And so begins my rediscovery. Join me as I Rediscover Morgan.


  1. I've often asked myself that same question!

  2. You guys are always posting fun crafts and things on facebook! But I know what you mean! Being Mom comes first and the rest kinda comes "when there's time", which, let's be honest, there never seems to be!
