HippyFitMom

Bio

Hello, my name is Amber.  I like to think of myself as a hippy mom because of my “natural tendencies” as some would say. I have a passion for life, motherhood and the military community.

I am a military spouse, mother of two and social entrepreneur, who tries to find balance in life as a wife, a mother, and everything in between while staying fit and healthy.  I am a fairly new mother and playing the “learn as I go” game.  I have had an interesting ride so far and had to learn from mistakes that most all new moms make.

Being a wife and mother is one of the most fulfilling jobs in the world but can also be the most difficult at times.  There are countless times, as a wife and mother, you might feel that your job is to take care of everyone else which might lead you to wonder, “Who is there to take care of me?”  I am not ashamed to say that that question crosses my mind ALL the time.  It is so different from when I was dating my now husband.  I was the baby that was taken care all the time…..ahh that was nice!  The memories of being wined and dined, foot rubs, massages, flowers and candies “just because” or just spending time with the other person and staring into each other eyes.  Ahh the memories!  But I digress, keeping a good balance between kids, the hubby, work and yourself is challenging like I said before but it can be done.  You might be wondering “how?”.  Well I am hoping to answer that question with this site.   I wanted to create a site that can offer mothers and wives like me hope.   A site that can be a good tool for advice and conversations for the situations and thoughts that we as mothers, wives and daughters go through.
