Hey y'all! I'm Hannah - wife to my college sweetheart, Jonathan, and mom of 3 boys - Evan, Porter, and Gibson! I was born and raised in Louisiana and have lived here pretty much my entire life. Outside of blogging, I am home raising my babies, as well as being an artist and photographer.
I'm a big fan of clean eating and exercise, but I'm also a big fan of cheeseburgers and binge-watching Netflix on my couch. My days are filled with reheated coffee, Disney movies on repeat, asking people if they need to go potty, stepping on legos, and lots of hugs and kisses. All of this means I'm generally a hot mess, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
I have a deeply rooted desire for encouraging other women, especially moms, as well as a desire to keep things real. Those two things really are the driving forces behind this blog. It is so easy to get bogged down in social media and blog-land these days with trying to "keep up" or make it seem like you've got it all figured out. Spoiler alert: I don't have it all figured out. But you know what? It's ok that everything isn't perfect. Because real women aren't perfect. And perfect women aren't real. It's just the truth. I hope this site will bring you some encouragement and laughter, and help you know you're not alone.
So why "cold coffee, hot mess"? I think any mom will know the answer to that question. It could basically be our collective life motto, right? (if you are some magical mama unicorn who is able to finish a hot cup of coffee without at least one spin around the microwave, please tell me all your secrets!) There is some part of our lives that will constantly be a hot mess, because having it all together is totally overrated.
I want to extend the same encouragement and prayer that I do with my friends to women everywhere who are in the thick of it. Whether that's staying home with little kids, being a working mom, or just being a woman...heck, that is hard enough some days! So thanks for being here with me. We need each other! There is nothing more powerful than women supporting each other, so I am excited to have a space to do that! I hope you'll stick around.
