About Meagan

I’m a mom who has come from a broken legacy with the hopes of giving my children better than I was given. Because of where I came from, I often get frustrated with the fakeness in parenting out there. I struggled so hard to try and figure out what was right and I needed someone willing to say parenting stinks but you aren’t alone.

I’m determined to rewrite legacies and live a life childhood me would have dreamed of. 

I want to be that for you. Whether you are overwhelmed trying to rewrite legacies, never learned to cook and need easy recipes, or just need a break from it all, I’m your girl and this is the place for you!

But what about the family?

My husband is my biggest cheerleader and the first person to call me out. 

Did you know that being called out can be super hard? I had to learn from him how to be criticized in a healthy way. He also taught me it’s safe to be loved and ok to admit weakness.

My strong-willed daughter taught me 3 things over the years. (She taught me more but here are 3.) 

  1. A strong will can be a beautiful thing if pointed in the right direction. On the other hand, raising a strong-willed child can push you to your limits and definitely has to come with some big boundaries.
  2. Learning disabilities don’t mean you can’t succeed but you will have to work harder! My daughter is dyslexic and dysgraphic. It means she works twice as hard but it also means she gets to show people and me just how capable she really is!
  3. I will give up the entire world if it means she has the chance to chase her dreams! Right now my daughter has braces while my teeth are crooked. If that doesn’t sum up my view on parenting I don’t know what does.

My hyper compassionate son taught me a few big things too! 

  1. There is more kindness in the world than I ever noticed. His compassion has taught me as a mom and a person to look for the kindness and the opportunities to serve others.
  2. It is possible to love two children equally and differently. When I was pregnant I was terrified I couldn’t love both. I do love them both equally but in different ways.
  3. Nothing is ever as simple as you think. He is my rambunctious boy who climbed before he walked. I have pulled my van under oak trees to help him get down, sat by as he got staples, and brought him old appliances to take apart. He’s shown me that the world isn’t simple but there are some fun things out there to be found!

We’re a Central Florida Family

Want to hear a fun fact? Before I lived in Central Florida I lived in Alaska! Yes, that Alaska. The frozen place where it’s dark too much. I took the first chance I could to flee from the frozen north to Florida and I never looked back.
I married my husband in Miami but Central Florida was calling and we happily moved closer to the happiest place on earth!
You can find some fantastic tips about enjoying the theme parks and so much more here! For now, please enjoy some fun Disney tips, Universal Orlando Tips, or even some highlights from our trip to Wild Florida!
