Hi, I'm Whit.
I'm a proud work from home mama that coordinates chaos. I run several businesses while my kids sleep, and I require a buttload of coffee.
I'm a former jet-setting career woman that woke up one day and realized I had climbed to the top of a career ladder I didn't even care about. Along my pursuit of success in all the wrong places, I put myself last.
I followed the "rules" like it was my job. Go to college, get a great job, get promoted a bunch of times, get married, try to have children. This is where things went off the rails. Fail at having children. Then succeed at having children. Grapple with what it means to be a modern working woman with children. Feel heartache at spending time away from children while simultaneously wanting nothing more than to be independent from children. There isn't a woman I know that doesn't struggle with finding "balance" in her life in some way when it comes to ambition and family.
I woke up one day, significantly overweight, INCREDIBLY stressed and unhappy, and I decided that if there was something in my life I didn't like, it had to go. Since then, I've built a life I love brick by brick.
It's my hope that if you're here, you want to build a life you love, too. What's the key to a life you're crazy about? Making room for YOU, girl. Connecting with other women that are IN THE TRENCHES with you. Whether it's getting right with your body, charting a path to leave that job that doesn't light you on fire, or connecting with other women that seem to be balancing it ALL, I'm so glad to have you here.
Woman. Mother. Friend. Wife.
did I mention I like coffee?
That man right there? He's my high school sweetheart. I know, gross.
Those kids in the middle? They're 20 months apart. Nope. Nope I don't think you should have babies that close in age.
We aren't graceful, and we're always covered in something gross, but we sure do love each other. We are the Ham-Hams. Glad to meet ya!
