You are not alone. You matter. You are enough.

This is the story I share with you, dear reader, through my experiences in motherhood, womanhood, community and my quest to discover and live out my purpose in this world. We all have a story to share. We all have a story we want to write. And our stories are worth telling. Let’s be superheroes; let’s say yes; let’s live our stories together.

Why I Left My Job is about leaving your fears behind. It’s about telling the negative voices in your head to shut the !@#$ up. It’s about picking yourself up and brushing the dirt off your shoulders.

I gave birth to this blog over a year ago after making the decision to leave my full-time job to stay home with my two young children. But that was just the beginning. Why I Left My Job is a blog about pursuing your dreams, embracing chaos, and creating more beauty in your world – one little step (or sip of wine) at a time.

Mother. Wife. Blogger. Dreamer.

My name is Aimee, I live in St. Paul, Minnesota, and I like to call myself a writer. I am a wife to one amazing man and a mother to two delightful children ages 5 and 3. My family is my world, but sometimes you will find me drinking a cold cerveza or glass of red wine while I revel in the gloriousness of naptime. I have big dreams, and I also have an addiction to Netflix. I believe that we can do great things together, but not before enjoying a warm cup of coffee in the morning.

Watch out world; here I come. I have my Wonder Woman shirt on today.

Muriel Rukeyser wrote, “Breathe-in experience, breathe-out poetry.” I believe that our lives are poetry. I believe in embracing our experiences as best as we can, listening to our hearts and souls, and breathing out goodness. There is much to learn from ourselves, each other and our little ones. There is much we can do together. But first, let’s have that cup of coffee.
