Hey, there! I’m Meredith…stay-at-home mom, mother of a beautiful (and extremely precocious!) 3 year old girl and a handsome baby boy, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God! I’m regularly *inspired* to create projects with my own spin on them…and always “inspired by HOPE in our Lord Jesus Christ!” [1Th 1:3]
My “unOriginal” journey began in January of 2013, right after I’d officially put in notice that I wouldn’t be returning from my maternity leave from my job as a high school choir director. I loved my job and my students (and I was pretty darn good at it, too), but deep down I think I always knew that I wanted to be a stay at home mom once I had kids. So here I was, trying to learn how to be good at being domestic through the amazing ideas on this fairly new website called Pinterest.
I know it sounds cliche, but I had the idea for this blog in the shower. Not kidding. It began as a New-Years-Resolution-idea, a way for me to keep myself “accountable” for trying out the ideas that I was pinning and share my successes and failures with the internet. Read all about my initial “vision” in my very first post!
It didn’t take very long for me to begin to discover a more creative and, dare I say, original side to myself that I didn’t even know existed. I fell in love with the blogging world and discovered what an terrific outlet this could be for me in the (sometimes) mundane life of a stay at home mom. Even as I discover more of my own originality, I think my blog name still fits as I’m a believer that no idea is every truly “original” – inspiration comes from many different places! unOriginal Mom has been – and continues to be – a creative journey for me. Won’t you come along for the ride?
