Kelsey and I recently connected online (through the powers of Twitter), and we’ve become good online friends and read-life friends.  We even have a special project up our sleeves that we’re collaborating on.  So stay tuned for that!  I so enjoyed having Kelsey on the show, she’s a delight and an inspiration.

Here’s what we talked about:

+Kelsey’s background and her life as a wife and mom.

+How Kelsey came to be a blogger.

+Kelsey’s experience with perfectionist, and how her perfectionism manifests itself in worries.

+We talk about how our perfectionism tendencies come out when we compare our homes to other people’s homes.  And how Kelsey is taking control of that tendency.

+Why Kelsey shares her life on her blog.  And we both talk about how we like to lift the veil on our lives.

+How balance doesn’t mean everything is equal.

+Kelsey’s co-hosted podcast The Girl Next Door Podcast.

+Kelsey and I hypothesize that our B+ life might actually be our A+ lives.

Please subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, and I’d love it if you’d take two minutes to rate and review the show.  Thank you!  I appreciate the support.  Tune in next week when I’m joined by Hayley Morgan from The Tiny Twig.


Sarah is a thiry-something wife to an engineer and mother of three. She loves teaching aerobic and cycling classes, learning to shoot with her DSLR in manual mode, and drinking coffee.

  • Great episode! Curious to know how you podcast–what tools do you use to record? I podcast at http://www.freelanceradio.com and I am more of a writer or speaker–not a tech girl! Always interested to hear how others do it.

    P.S. I would do my homework that way too!

    • Thank you! And great question! I am working on a post that will go over the technical stuff, and I’ll be sure to include all my tools! Ha ha, re: homework! I like to get things done! 🙂

  • Just listened to the podcast the other night. Loved the comment about looking through a favorite blog’s early archives to remind yourself that everyone starts somewhere, and it’s okay to start off unpolished. I’ve totally done that before.

    • Yes! I’ve done that before. It’s a good reminder that, at one time, everyone was a beginner!
