Welcome to “This Ole Mom” Blog.
Hi! My name is Kim. I am a mom of three. I live in South, Louisiana with my husband and our eight-year-old son and one furbaby. My two oldest children (adults) 25 and 21 live away from home.
I started This Ole Mom blog to document and share my love for cooking, crafting, and traveling with my friends and family. It quickly grew into a community where people can come and find a favorite family recipe, a craft to make, or a fun place to travel with their family.
A LITTLE ABOUT ME :
I love to eat, cook, and travel. I travel mostly with my youngest son. We’re always looking for new places to explore. Disney World has become one of our favorite places. We both love how magical Disney makes us feel when we are there. It’s such a great place to make memories. As an older mom, it’s important to me that I create everlasting memories with my son.
I’m also a huge social media addict. I enjoy connecting with others and sharing my life in hopes to put a smile on someone’s face or inspire them to get out of their comfort zone and try something different, regardless of their age or if they have a disability.
SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT ME:
I was born with clubfeet and curvature of the spine, and my spine pressed on my lungs. I wore leg braces and a back brace for many years. I endured multiple surgeries as a young child, teenager, and young adult. Heck, I wasn’t supposed to live past 21 years old, and here I am today!! I know that sounds depressing but, it has shaped me into the person I am today! I do have other medical conditions that aren’t visible but, they don’t keep me from enjoying my life!!
WHAT I BELIEVE:
I believe in always smiling no matter what, being kind and helping others, and to think positive!
I hope that you can find something here to inspire you!! Please don’t be a stranger if you ever have a question email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
