Profile 2015 2

Hi, there!  I’m Allison and I want to help you make every hour count!  

Like many of you 21st-century parents, I have taken on responsibilities such as homeschooling, feeding my family real food and living a more natural lifestyle. While balancing our ideals and maintaining time and emotional freedom isn’t always easy, we know it’s worth it.  That’s why I’m always looking for ways to save time and increase my freedom from the unnecessary things.  This creates time to make memories with the people I love and have enough “me-time” leftover to make my introvert heart happy.  

When I discover those time- (and money-) saving solutions, I share them with you.  In addition, questions from my family and friends about my unconventional lifestyle are the catalyst for many of the articles I write here at Our Small Hours.  

How Our Small Hours Got Its Name

The blog name ‘Our Small Hours’ was inspired by the popular song “Little Wonders” by Rob Thomas.  While I was a stay-at-home mom of small children, I realized that the hours seemed short, but the days seemed long.  In the more challenging days of early parenthood, I tried to focus on conquering each small hour when taking on the whole day seemed like too much.  

This shift in perspective helped me to make the most of my time with my children instead of being dragged down by the challenges of mothering small children day in and day out.  This mindset has lasted as my children have gotten older and I have taken on even more responsibilities.
