My name is Kim Morrise and I am a 49 year old wife and mother of 2 incredible girls. For the first 20 years of my post-college adult life, I identified myself as a news producer. I loved that gig. Every day was new. I traveled around the country, taking on new jobs at new stations. In many careers, I’m sure, you form “work families”.

I stayed in my career for 6 years while I was a mom. I wanted to do both perfectly, and I just couldn’t.I left television, after working at The Weather Channel for 10 years, and started my own business.

At the end of 2014, my husband got a fantastic opportunity to take a promotion and move us back to his hometown. The move meant selling the business and being a full-time mom.I have been “full-time-mommy-ing” it since January 2015. I love it. I really do. I do. Except… now I’m in this space of trying to figure out what to do next. I guess I was wrong years ago when I said I could stay home and do nothing if I won the lottery.So, a woman that I have only met on the phone, discussing that business I sold, suggested I start a blog. I find it silly, really. What could I possibly offer you?Then I thought, I only have “30 Seconds”, what am I going to do with them? So here goes….
