My Mess Became My Message
The Crunchy Moose happened on accident. And what a happy little accident it's been! I adopted my son in 2012. At the time, I owned a retail store. I quickly discovered that I didn't want to be a mom that worked 50+ hours per week. So we sold the store. My plan was to stay home with Morrison for a handful of months then start a new career.
Those first few months at home were challenging. Transitioning to being home & being a new mom was lonely, hard, frustrating, and amazing. I started blogging as an outlet. This was before social media was all the rage - everyone had a blog. Come on, don't lie! If you were a young adult in 2012, you probably had a blogger account, too!
I named the blog "The Crunchy Moose" because one of my son's (short-lived) nicknames when he was a baby was Moose. And "crunchy" is sometimes used to describe all things hippie and natural.....you know, crunchy like granola! ;-)
This was my first logo. A crunchy, granola filled moose ;-) Yall, I was so proud of these PhotoShop skills!
At the time I was recovering from 3 years of spine surgeries holistically. My adopted son was born with health problems & severe allergies and I was working on healing him holistically. I was blogging about what I was doing, what was working, and what wasn't working.
After a few months, my little blog I was creating during nap time started to get traffic. I decided to give it more time before going back to work to see if I could create an income and a little at home business.
A little over a decade later, and I'm happy to have this little spot on the internet where I get to hang out with you! Thank you for stopping by The Crunchy Moose!
I'm so glad you're here!
