When I restarted the Tony and Holly Wing It blog a month ago, I wasn’t sure whether I was going to like it or if I would really want to go anywhere with it. So I wrote a couple of posts and dipped my toes in the water. I’ve found that I really enjoy writing publicly and want to continue doing it in a more legit fashion. Enter Simply Mama Bird! I’m excited to really hit the ground running with this new and improved “Winging It” blog. It is giving me a creative outlet outside of mothering that I have been really craving lately. It also has fulfilled a calling that I’ve had on my heart for awhile.
I hope to share my journey in living and loving intentionally with you all. This can look like a lot of different things. In our current stage of life, it looks like mothering my children as best as I can, being the wife that my husband needs, taking time for Jesus, and being a good steward of this earth. I hope to cover these topics (and more!) as I get into blogging more. I’d also love to hear what you guys want to know more about- let me do the research for you and give you our take on what we’re doing!

I also realized that I never really gave the low down on what the Bird Family is doing with our lives right now- especially since everyone that I talk to is wondering how in the world we ended up in Tampa, FL! Tony’s job has us moving pretty often right now as he moves through different roles to get him acquainted with different grocery businesses throughout the country. After living in Minneapolis, MN after college for a couple years, we moved to Grand Rapids, MI in July 2018. Ten months later, we moved again to Tampa, Fl. While, it’s been a whirlwind, we’ve been able to do these moves pretty easily given that I stay at home with our two rugrats and his company takes care of a lot of the logistics for us. We have no idea what we want our “long term” location to be, so in the meantime we’re going with the flow with Tony’s job and enjoying being within 30 minutes of the beach as long as we’re in Florida.
We have two sweet kiddos who run my days right now. Nora is currently 2.5 and potty training. She’s got a strong, mostly sweet, personality and is quite particular (just like her mama, I’m told 😉 ). She was our surprise honeymoon baby and turned our world upside down in the best way. Nora’s an adventure all on her own, and then we decided to add Charlie to the mix! Charlie just turned 10 months and is a super happy little boy, most of the time. He’s crawling like a mad man and getting into so much more than Nora ever did. They’re both growing like weeds and keep me on my toes constantly. As they start playing together more, it has been so sweet to watch as their relationship begins. I feel so blessed to be these babies’ mother and can’t wait to see where life takes our little family.
I hope that you’ll enjoy being a part of this blogging journey. I hope that you’ll find something here that inspires you or helps you on your own journey. I hope that every so often I’ll make you smile or laugh out loud. I hope that you’ll feel that I’m a part of your village, just as you are all mine. If you want to see what’s inspiring me daily, follow along with Simply Mama Bird on Facebook and/or Pinterest, and make sure to follow along in our newsletter for Bird Family updates! Thanks for coming along for the adventure- it should be a wild ride!
