Oh hey, friend! I’m glad you found me! My name is Kylie Harris and I’m a happily married, mid-thirties mama to three young kids, living the sunny life in Charleston, SC.
I spend an embarrassing about of time looking at my phone (we’re all trying to cut back, right??), but in my defense, I don’t play games, I’m almost always reading! I LOVE learning new things and looking stuff up. I pride myself on being able to figure almost anything out in one well-worded Google search. It’s a party trick, lol! I love podcasts (Bold New Mom and Awesome with Alison are my current jams!), Pinterest (see what I’m pinning here!) and books (non-fiction, surprise surprise!)
My mom was the best at totally indulging and encouraging my creative and crafty side growing up. I was making puffy painted tote bags, homemade candles, pottery, Barbie furniture and friendship bracelets at twelve. These days I’m making wreaths, costumes for my kids, holiday decorations, hairbows, quilts and jewelry. I’m happiest when I’m making things. Or jusy admiring my rainbowtized craft supplies, haha.
I absolutely love helping others. I especially can’t keep my mouth shut about easy hair/beauty tips, ways to save money, making money on the side, and how to tweak things to run better at home. I don’t always take my own advice, but like I tell my kids, “Mistakes are for learning!” This blog is an extension of my desire to help and share what works and what doesn’t. Hopefully you find something helpful too!
I’m so glad you’re here! I’d love to catch up on Instagram (@thehowtomom), and it’d be great to have you join my friends on FB at facebook.com/thehowtomom. If you want to drop me an email, its thehowtomom(at)gmail.com, and next time you visit Charleston, lets get some pralines and meet up at the beach!
