Tasha is the creator and owner of Cookie Crumbs, a blog which documents her life as a wife, mother and creative soul.
Cookie Crumbs is new to Suzie Speaks, but I instantly loved the design and the tag line: ‘Welcome to my mind. Please excuse the mess, I haven’t had time to clean‘. Tasha explains her story in her About Page:
My family and I live in Iowa, where I was born and raised. Since the birth of our daughter, Addie, I felt the struggle between being a full-time working mother and just wanting to be home with her. I have gone from a working mom to a SAHM and back to a working mom. Each poses it’s own set of struggles and joys…
One Year Ago my husband, Matt and I made the huge decision to move our family from the Catskills of New York, where we had spent the past nine years, to my hometown in Iowa. This was a decision that we had toiled with continuously over the years but we knew that either decision, stay in NY or move to Iowa, would come with a big sacrifice. That sacrifice was whose family would we be leaving, his or mine? After having our daughter the decision became even more difficult, after all, this home was all she had ever known. However, all of her cousins lived in Iowa and she only got to see them, my parents and her aunts and uncles, once a year. We knew that whatever we decided we would be giving up a big part of who we were…
On and off over the past 4 years, I have thought about starting a blog. I even tried my hand at it just as a way to share with my family what was going on with us, but in 2013 I just stopped. I didn’t feel like I had anything to write about, I was overwhelmed with work and motherhood and it just fell by the wayside. Then, something changed. I was sitting in the tv room of my parent’s house and I looked over at my bonsai tree, that I had looked at countless times over the years that I’ve had it. This time was different, though. I felt the creative energy flowing through me and not only did I want to talk about that tree but other ideas just kept pouring out. I furiously typed and here I am now, starting new.
Do you feel like you’ve lost or can’t find your path or passion? Are you looking for some way to express yourself, outside of being a mom? Are you scared to try something you’ve always dreamed about because it’s “silly” or risky? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you are in the right place! I’m just learning how to harness my passion for creating again and I have no idea how to do this crazy blogging stuff but if you’re willing to take a risk with me, I’d love to have you along for the ride. Welcome to my mind! Please excuse the mess, I haven’t had time to clean.
Cookie Crumbs doesn’t have a particular niche or theme – I like the fact that Tasha writes about what she wants, when she wants. If you like posts on parenting, fashion, books and daily experiences, then this is absolutely the blog for you!
