I’m Andi, and let me just start by saying that I am thrilled to have you here. Lend Me Your Kite was started back in 2012 when my mom was going through a stem cell transplant and I needed an emotional outlet to cope. Blogging became my passion and as my life has changed, this space has as well. Now, I chronicle my life as a stay at home mama to two rambunctious boys (Declan + Bennett). I met my husband on an online dating website (before it was socially acceptable) and I’ve never looked back from that 14 hour first date. We weed through this crazy life together one inappropriate joke at a time and he is genuinely the greatest person I have ever known.
When I quit my day job to do the full-time mommy thing back in 2013, I had no idea just what I was getting myself into. Motherhood is the most rewarding, terrifying, exhausting, joyous thing I have ever experienced. I believe that our trials are just as significant to our story as our triumphs, which is why I do my best to provide an authentic peek into the beautiful chaos that is motherhood.
When I’m not blogging, chasing after two crazy kids, teaching Fit4Mom classes, or making a mess in the kitchen, you can find me tirelessly working on my passion project: Mama Love Collective. I have a deep love and respect for the women of this world who choose motherhood. It’s not an easy job and many times mamas find themselves feeling isolated and alone and well, I aim to change that.
I’m over the moon to have you walking this path with me, because lives are meant to be shared. So let’s share, sweet friends! It’s so good to have you and I’m always just an email away if you ever need anything. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
