40 is the New 40

Turning 40 is a life change most women dread, but for me, I am writing about the adventure of raising teens into adults, transitioning from full-time homeschooling mom into out-of-a-job, and learning to find the passions I lost along the way. I'm learning to reconnect in my marriage, make health a priority, finding my creative side, and seeing where my life takes me.

Embracing My 40’s

Hi, I’m Michelle.

I enjoy writing about life and helping others struggling in the process. I am a mom of 3 children with varying issues from autism to anxiety and ADHD. I have one adult child and two teens.

I’m learning to engage again with who I am and in my marriage and friendships after being a homeschooling mom for over 12 years. I write about what that’s like and what I’m learning. I hope to encourage others too that life doesn’t end when our kids grow up. It’s just beginning.

All the Best,

  • My daughter + Pinterest + my hair = this. 💞
  • Me smashing my face into my pillow because 1. I live in a state where spring is defined as 8 inches of freaking snow 2. I have fibroids and my period so I want to die (seriously a hysterectomy seems less painful) 3. I'm taking pills to try to help my fibroids but it gives me mad cow disease. Joking but the side effects are no fun either. Ugh. It's fun being 40.
