Hi, I’m Joanna! Welcome to Makingmine!
Who am I?
I’m a twenty-something stay-at-home mama to my two sweet girls – Eleanor and Everly. I’m a teacher by training, but enjoy using my talent and creativity inside the home while my girls are still young. This blog documents our lives – from our family’s favorite recipes, to my fitness regimen, to fun activities to do with the kiddos, you’ll find it all here!
Makingmine is about creating the life I’ve always wanted and taking each day as an opportunity to live big! This season of motherhood can feel daunting, but I do my best to embrace those “messy mom moments” every day and share those stories with you!
Here are a few VIP’s you need to know:
Jeff is my husband – we celebrated our marriage on August 11, 2012 with a beautiful wedding in Omaha, NE. He’s a wonderful father and the brains behind the technical side of this site. He’s an IT professional by day and runs his website consultancy business Murnan Creative by night.
Eleanor is our adorable little girl born in June 2013. She has the sweetest disposition and I absolutely love being her mama. It’s been a joy watching her grow and develop into a lively toddler, and I’m so blessed to be able to stay home with her full-time. Eleanor LOVES singing and dancing, and would only eat applesauce and yogurt if she had it her way ;)
Everly is the newest addition to our family! She was born in April 2015 and has been an absolute DREAM baby! She is incredibly laid back, smiles freely, and gives her mama the BEST snuggles.
