Welcome to my blog! My name is Aerica (AIR-RI-CUH), don’t ask me why the A is there) & I am the face behind MILF.
I’m also a sarcastic & sassy, procrastinatin’, selfie takin’, Jesus lovin’, Georgia livin’ 26 years young, mama of two (girl and boy) fueled by coffee, chaos, and success. I’ve been in the mom business for going on 8 years, and I’m still pretty confident I’m doing it all wrong. Honestly, if I’ve remembered to feed the kids before noon and can actually get through the day without a glass of wine then it’s a good day. Totally kidding (about feeding them, not the wine)! I’m most comfortable in yoga pants and a sports bra even though I don’t yoga, I hate sports and I’m pretty sure my boobs don’t even require a bra. I’ve thought about starting a blog for a long time now but never got far with it (that’s where my procrastinating comes in). But one day I picked up a pen and couldn’t stop writing. Now it’s kinda my thing.
If you’d like to read more about me, check out my blog post 15 Random (And Wierd) Facts About Me that I wrote in honor of my 1 year blogging anniversary!
Why Am I A Mother You Want To Follow?
There are so many mom great mom blogs out there. And if you’re anything like me, you probably have a few favorites that you keep up with already. So why read mine? What makes Mother I’d Like 2 Follow different?
Geeze!! No pressure right…
The way I see it, we are all in this thing called motherhood together. I know I can’t be the ONLY mama who goes through challenges and struggles. And I sure hope I’m not the ONLY mama who often finds herself questioning who she is, what she wants out of life and what the hell she’s doing!? Sometimes, more than anything, it’s so reassuring to know that you are not alone & someone else has (or is) gone through the same thing you are and actually survived! At the end of the day, we all just want to be able to relate to someone or something.
This blog is an unfiltered look into my life of motherhood and everything in-between. What I’ve noticed throughout my years of mothering is that sometimes us mamas get so occupied being moms that we forget there are SO many other parts of us.
We are women. We are daughters. We are sisters. We are friends.
While motherhood is definitely the lead role, we cannot neglect our supporting roles.What I’ve learned is that when we neglect the supporting roles, the lead role isn’t as strong and isn’t as happy. We need those supporting roles to hold us up, especially when motherhood gets tough.
This blog will discuss my journey of motherhood and beyond. Mommying and relationships, cooking and cleaning, career and education, beauty and fashion, self-care and fitness – all while trying to balance it all & remain SANE.
That means things might get crazy. They might not make sense. There will probably be typos. And 99% of the time I will probably be a walking disaster & get everything wrong. Oh, and if cuss words give you anxiety you probably want to close this browser.
But if you’re looking to read something raw, and something genuine; something that will make you happy, something that will make you cry, and something that will make you literally laugh your ass off (I’m sure most of the time you’ll be laughing at me and not with me) then keep reading. I promise to share my experiences, my lessons, my tribulations, and my revelations, good and bad, with you.I’m in the season of my life where I’m finding out who I am and learning to embrace her to the fullest. Despite the craziness, I’d love if you’ve joined me.
Whether you’re in the same season as me, a season behind or a season ahead – I believe there is something here for everyone. Whatever or whoever brought you here, I am so thankful for it. I hope that my blog is able to serve you in a way that is inspiring, motivational and as a reminder that you are not alone. I’m right here with you girl!
