Who I am
Wife, Mother, Friend, Teacher, Gardener, Writer, Cook
Greetings from my humble mid-western hobby farm! I am Laranda Colbert. As a mother of 3, with one of them being a teenager, I know the life of a busy stay-at-home mom. Finding that balance between self care and nurturing these young brains is in my daily ponderings. I know how it feels to go from "I got this!" to "I'm failing" in 0.2 seconds.
I enjoy gardening and preserving the bountiful harvest for winter. While I've had no formal culinary training, I am a pretty darn good cook and baker. In recent months I have found a love for writing. If you had told me 10+ years ago that I would actually enjoy writing, I would have laughed...in your face. Which I suppose segues into my love of sarcasm. My youngest daughter is the best with showing me just how my mom must have felt when I was a child. *sigh*
Join me on this journey of motherhood and let's do this together, even if it is differently!
What I do
Write, Edit, Design
When my hands aren't full with kids, kids' activities and gardening, I am writing about my adventures as a mom, wife and woman. I help my colleagues with editing their pieces and brainstorm for our new ideas. We work as a team to bring you stories, recipes and tought provoking articles in hopes that it will encourage you as you walk through the motherhood journey with us.
My work with MomSquad Daily has truly provided growth and development of new skills. I am learning and participating in the growth of our social media impact while learning the ins and outs of running a blog. I have extensive professional experience in data entry and would love to help you!
I would love the opportunity to collaborate with you on your next project. Shoot me an email and let's talk about how I can help you!
