ShabbyBlogsGlad Thank you for visiting Girliemom and spending some time with me. My name is Melissa and I am the proud mom of 3 gorgeous girls.

I founded Girliemom 5 years ago. My journey to blogging ‘stardom’ has had highs and lows. You will have to spend some time on my site to understand.   Like many of you, I work full-time and manage a very hectic schedule.  Here at Girliemom we write about work and family, general organization tips and tricks and objects of loveliness. These are the things I enjoy to talk about.

As a full time working mother, I find the whole ‘having it all’ work/mom debate extremely interesting.  The art of balancing work and family involves tremendous coordination and attention to details.  Yet, I realize I tend to be a bit dramatic and overthink everything.  To balance my life, I make an attempt to infuse humor into my every day; because if we can’t laugh at ourselves, who can we laugh at?

“The balance and coordination involved in managing work and family often feels like a circus show. There are good days, bad days and everything in-between.”   Some days I think I’m a rock star and other days I think to myself “Good God I stink”  What mother does not have these thoughts?

There are a few things in life that provide me joy and happiness. I enjoy time with family and friends, I love the beach, reading books, biking, and I also enjoy organizing things.  More than likely I missed the boat and should have been a professional  organizer or something along those lines.  I like things orderly and everything should be in it’s place. When its out of place, my eyes start to twitch.  Yeah, I know, we all have our issues.

I am 1/2 fashionista and 1/2 geek. I obsess over shoes, lip-gloss and change my hair like the wind and since I have 3 daughters you can see how the name “Girliemom” was born. Yet, I am also a geek. I can spend 18 hours a day on my computer and be very content. Friends and family think I am weird and often wonder what the heck I am doing on the computer all day.  I just tell my kids that I’m hacking into their Instagram :).
