About Carrie Lindquist

An Everyday Mom is written by just that, an everyday mom. I'm a down-to-earth, yoga-pants loving, chocolate addicted stay-at-home wife & momma with a quirky sense of humor.

I've found freedom and so much more joy in simplified motherhood and I want to help you find that same freedom! I think we tend to complicate this motherhood gig a whole lot--and it's time we take the crazy outta the #momlife. Are ya' with me?

I started blogging in 2014 knee-deep in mothering my then 2 year old and 7 month old boys and really just needed an outlet that didn't involve diaper changes {can I get an amen?}.

I was dealing with some major life overwhelm until one day amidst the piles of laundry I realized . . . it didn't have to be that way. I had the power to make life a whole lot simpler. 

From that point on I've been on a mission to simplify everyday motherhood so that I can spend less time overwhelmed and more time just enjoying it. 

At the end of 2016 I was also diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, a chronic, debilitating autoimmune disease. This diagnosis has given me an even deeper desire to make everyday life less of a pain--literally--and more enjoyable.

As a homeschool mom, I am also the author of Foundations Phonics because I believe you are your child's best teacher--and you can totally teach them to read! You can find more info here!
