Hello my name is Crystal! I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years and we have a 1-year-old son. Being a mom is by far the best thing I’ve ever done! Motherhood has taught me patience and to savor every moment. I’ve learned not to take myself so seriously and to adapt when things don’t go as planned. As a family, we love to travel and explore new places. I enjoy creating itineraries for our vacations. When I’m not working, you can find me cooking, baking, or taking a group exercise class! I try and eat healthy most of the time but certainly have a wicked sweet tooth… everything in moderation right? Coffee is absolutely my favorite beverage and gets me through the late nights and early mornings. I don’t know how I would function without Burt’s Bees lip balm. I keep a spare in the diaper bag, car, work bag…you get the idea!
Before I became a mother, I dabbled in several different entrepreneurial opportunities but none of them gave me a sense of purpose. One of my personal goals is to make a difference and help others. I want to be a part of something I truly believe in and incorporates my passion of health and fitness. During my pregnancy, I started listening to various podcasts and reading mom blogs. At the time, I didn’t have many friends with children so it gave me an idea of what to “expect”. It was reassuring hearing different experiences women went through during pregnancy and postpartum.
After surviving the first year of motherhood I realized that the best two teachers are experience and perspective! Mamas Daily Dose is here to create an environment in which women can share, learn, and grow together as mothers! I am so excited to share my insight and knowledge at a first time mom!
