I'm a HIT: Homemaker in Training!

After years of being indecisive about what I'd like to make my professional, lifelong career (and ranging from teacher to writer to makeup artist), I have chosen the oldest calling in the book.... homemaking!

Say... is that Donna Reed? Mary Bailey is one of my favorite homemakers!
I never thought about it before, but as I grew this year, in femininity and spirit both, I realized the utter importance of being there for your family in the home. After all, if you don't raise the next generation, who will? Secular schools? Strangers in classrooms? TV?

I'm one of those people who is mostly moderately good at a handful of things (although I truly believe writing is my best talent) and frankly, I just don't think I work well under someone else, with no room for creativity or anything. As a homemaker, I am my own boss working alongside my husband, and can creative to the high Heavens for my future family's needs and demands. I am actually excited thinking about it!

Of course, I fully plan to keep writing as well as I do this. I will probably even blog about my adventures as a  housekeeper, mom, free maid and live-in chef, too. I mean, maybe I'm just a dork, but I get excited when I find cool ways to live frugally and clever organizing tips!

You know this craft area is your living dream.
People who put down homemaking... well, you have to laugh. It's kind of naive. Living in squalor is strong and clever? Doing what YOU want and living for the self is being an independent woman? Sorry, I can't say that's true. If homemaking isn't YOUR calling, fine, but don't trash the idea just because you'd rather have more money than a great home and happy family. Don't knock it till you try it!
