Hello! And welcome to House of Blondes! I’m so glad you could stop by!
My name is Hannah Willson, wife to Paul S. and mother to Paul M. and Benjamin. My day to day life can be summarized in one sentence: Seeking to glorify God by loving my husband, making my home a place of relaxation and refreshment and doing everything in my power to keep my tiny humans (AKA children) alive.
I won’t go into all the details of how this blog came to be. If you’d like, you can read that story here. But basically, after working as a virtual assistant for a couple of years I fell in love with blogging. But as the wife of an aircraft mechanic, I notice a serious flaw in the blogosphere: Wives and mothers who didn’t fit in the “8-5 Box” were being neglected. So I decided to do something about it.
My prayer is that this blog serves as an encouragement to you. My goal is that you leave each post with a sense of relief because you found someone who “gets it”; someone who understands the unique challenges that come with marriage and parenting when the man of the home works weird or long hours. It’s a difficult and often unpredictable life and it’s made even harder by a sense of loneliness.
But you are not alone! Even if you do fit in the “8-5 Box” I hope you’ll stick around. I’ll be sharing my adventures, opinions and thoughts, and many, MANY mistakes as well as the lessons I’ve learned from them. No matter what “Box” you fit in, I pray you find community, hope, encouragement, and lots of laughter.
