One of my loyal readers asked me to explain my lifestyle and my decision to work from home. That issue is a bit of a “hot button” in today’s society, but I do not intend for my response to spark controversy.
For those who don’t know, I attended public school through tenth grade and then switched to homeschooling, by my own choice. (For more on that, read “My Homeschool Journey.”)
I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism, which includes a public relations certificate and a business concentration. Upon completing my education at age 20, I worked in the Communications department of a nonprofit organization for several months before marrying Mr. Handsome. I now work from home as a blogger and am also writing a book based on my grandmother’s WWII story (more updates on that to come).
Working at home isn’t for everyone, but I really enjoy the flexibility. Most days, I spend 4-5 hours at the computer and 4-6 hours running errands, cooking, cleaning, and doing paperwork/bookkeeping for Mr. Handsome’s business.
We have been married for almost 14 months and are praying about starting a family in the next few years. Mr. Handsome and I would love to have at least four children…and perhaps as many as eight or ten. We plan to homeschool, as both of us had wonderful home education experiences. I hope to continue working from home while being a mother (and teacher), but my husband and family will always come first.
