Family & Home
Home is where the heart is — yes, I know it's a corny saying, but it's so true! My home is my happy place and yours can be too!
When I first started The Soccer Mom Blog, my main focus was connecting with other moms and sharing "what worked."
It wasn't about having a Pinterest-perfect home -- it was about time-saving cleaning hacks to free up more time to spend together as a family. It was about finding out exactly where your money is going so you can save more for things like a summer vacation. It was about meeting your kids where they are, because this parenting thing is not "one size fits all!"
Over the years the site has grown to include more topics, but this is still the soul of the blog.
Building a strong family and a happy home isn't a cliche -- it's our mission here at The Soccer Mom Blog! These are all our best parenting tips, DIY ideas & more! I'm so glad you're here!
