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 7 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.
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…
If I’m completely honest, the decision to start a blog wasn’t so much for the hope of potential readers as it was for my own personal growth. In fact, initially my writing was strictly for my eyes only. Writing has always been my outlet. I find that when I put my thoughts on paper, it’s kind of like taking a mini vaca from all the craziness that’s going on in my life. The idea to start a blog didn’t even cross my mind until my friends & family brought it to my attention.
After some convincing, two launches, A LOT of research (I google everything) and a few trial and errors – MILF began and I am so glad that it did.
The way I see it, we are all in this thing called life together. If I know something that may benefit someone else or may possibly prevent them from making a decision they may regret – why in the world wouldn’t I tell them? Writing is the BEST way to reach a large audience and what I’ve learned is that it’s extremely selfish to keep knowledge to yourself. So what good would my writing be if you I didn’t share it?
Not only that, but 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!
My only hope for this blog is to let all you other MILFs know you are not alone. I’m sure we can all agree, being a mom is hard. Now add a career & education, relationships, cooking, cleaning, beauty, fashion, fitness to the mix – all while trying to remain SANE. Things are bound to get a little cray cray!
This blog will be unfiltered look into my life. 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, good and bad, with you. I hope that you stay awhile and get something positive in return.
