Thank you for stopping by! My name is Stacey and I am a wife and mom of two beautiful girls, ages 3 & 7.  We live on the coast of Maine and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else!  Winters can get long, but the rest of the year in our beautiful state makes up for it.  My favorite place to be is at the beach with a good book (of course having 2 young kids I rarely have the book in hand).  When I’m not at the beach you’ll find me busy playing with my kids, bringing them to activities and managing their schedules, keeping up with the housework and meals, and working very flexible part-time hours as a blogger and an Independent Skincare Consultant with Rodan + Fields.  I love helping people feel more confident in their skin, so it’s natural for me to want to inspire other parents to feel more confident, happy and fulfilled in their busy lives.

In October 2015, when my youngest was 18 months old, I made the difficult decision to leave my corporate career and stay home full-time.  I had no idea the journey I was about to embark on, and the challenges and absolute joys that come along with being a stay-at-home mom.  Whether you are a full-time or part-time working parent, a stay-at-home parent, or a work-at-home parent, we all struggle to find balance and fulfillment in our chaotic lives.  Balance to find time for ourselves outside of motherhood, fulfillment to be able to enjoy life to the fullest and appreciate our blessings amidst the tantrums, messes, and middle of the night waking’s, and the confidence to know we are doing great at this parenting thing!  Seashells and Storytime is a blog dedicated to inspiring parents to be the best version of themselves. I share advice and personal experiences to encourage all parents to have a positive mindset and be confident, mindful role models for their children.  I look forward to sharing my journey with you, and hope to inspire you to work towards the best version of yourself!
