About Me

nowathomemomMy name is Ingrid,  I am Nat’s mommy, wife to be to my charming man, with two dogs (Angel and Damon).   After many years as an analyst in the telecommunications and alarm systems field, my husband and I we took one of the biggest decisions for our family; to be a stay-at-home mom. So now that my lifestyle has changed and one of my biggest passions is home decor, I will be attempting DIY projects, recipes and other projects that may interest me and share them with you through “now at home mom”

My hubby and I bought our house two years ago, we found out we were expecting 2 months after we moved in, so all our modern white crisp furniture no longer suited our new style of living with a newborn. Since, we have changed the decor of each room in our house multiple times and we have not finished yet due to lack of time, sleep and we are both the furthest thing from being handy around the house, we have decided to finally make our living spaces, family and toddler friendly.

I blog these experiences and projects because I would like to share with everyone the things that inspire me and love the most (my baby boy, my husband to be, my dogs, my passion for home decor, DIY projects, recipes and of course beautiful things).

I write every chance I get, so I thank you for letting me share all these thoughts, ideas and experiences with you, I would also love to hear from you.

Ingrid

    When my first child was born I decided to stay at home too, and I never regret that decision.
