If you know me outside of La Hoot, it’s likely that you’ve come across my personal blog, Growing Up Husted. You’ve also probably noticed that I haven’t written in that blog since the end of March. Say, what!?!? Yeah… Quite honestly, it’s hard to keep up two blogs, keep up with orders, and still spend time loving my family. So here I am deciding to roll my two blogs into one.
I’m a lucky girl. I have the privilege of staying home with my kids while also spending my “free time” growing a business. (Is any time as a mother ever “free?” Hah!) Sometimes people look at me and wonder how I do it all. Well, I don’t always do it all. And I surely don’t always do it all well. Every adventure comes with sacrifices and bumps in the road. It also comes with lessons learned and new methods of doing things a little bit better.
So I thought by bringing my personal life into the picture, you could get to know me. You could see what I do when I’m not baking or decorating. You could see the other things that bring joy to my life. And hopefully… I’ll get to see more of you! I’ve said before that one of the reasons I do what I do is because I LOVE making people’s special events all the more sweet. I love getting to know the people who buy my desserts. That’s actually one of the reasons I love doing this out of my home. It’s so much more personal than stopping in a store front, swiping your card, and hitting the road. I love to welcome people into my life and what better way to do that than to open up the doors to my home and my heart?
So I hope you’ll join me on this journey. Get in the conversation. Share your life with me. What do you like to do in free time? How do you balance your life as a mom, wife, sister, friend, or coworker. So many hats we wear, right? So here goes… let’s get real!
