About Me


Hi! I’m Aileen, a very busy working mama of an eight year old and stepmom of three older children. While I am addicted to Pintrest, my house and life are usually a far cry from a Pintrest board. Comparing our real lives to other people’s “photo-worthy” Instagram and Facebook posts creates unrealistic expectations for women, mothers and wives.

Adventures of a Real Mom is a place for women to embrace the crazy, messy, less-than-perfect moments of life and know they are not alone. Enjoy the chaos and be grateful for every second!

As I get older, I am learning to appreciate the important things in my life and allow myself some grace to let go of the less important things. I am not always successful, but more grace and peace are the goal. So sit back, relax, take a deep breath and let’s embrace this crazy life!

Hugs and blessings to you all!
