Two Halves Do Not Always Equal a Whole

When I became a stay at home mom 5 years ago, I knew it was the right decision for me. I had been working in a recruiter role with a heavy sales component and worked around the clock. I am the type of person who gets totally engrossed in her work. I also am kind of a perfectionist control freak.  So I knew once I had a child, I would want to be able to focus 100% of my time and attention at home and not feel pulled in multiple directions with work.

Tara is a native Pennsylvanian who moved to the Seattle area in 1998 (sight unseen) with her husband to start their grand life adventure together. Despite the difficult fact that their family is a plane ride away, the couple fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and have put down roots. They have 2 super charged little boys and recently moved out of the Seattle suburbs further east into the country, trading in a Starbucks on every corner for coyotes in the backyard. Tara loves the outdoors (hiking, biking, camping). And, when her family isn't out in nature, they are hunkered down at home with friends, sharing a meal, playing games, and generally having fun. She loves being a stay-at-home mom and sharing her experiences on World Moms Network!
