Lele and I were talking about dreams the other day and how she stopped chasing dreams. I felt like a ton of bricks hit me, when she said that. A few seconds later she goes, I am starting to want to chase them again because of you and daddy. You guys are helping me want to have dreams and chase them. That made me smile, but also made me sad. Lele is such an amazing daughter, the growth in her has been incredible. She is also super talented.

What Lele said to me, really hit home with me. I could easily not have a business, but that isn’t what I want. I have a dream of this business of mine and what I really want. Could I give up on my dream? I could, but I am not going to.. I need to show Lele, JJ and Isabella that chasing dreams is a good thing and worth it. I need to set an example and they pick up on so many things. I don’t want Lele to see me giving up on a dream because it isn’t going the way I want it to go. I want her to see me work hard, smart and be successful.


For a while I have been toying about my business and what I really want to do and how I can do it. I thought after the kids were back in school, it would be a little easier and I would get back into my groove. Yeah, that wasn’t the case. It is hard to work and have kiddos, I am open to any tips you have. This mama is struggling over here. Some days I struggle more than others.Some days I actually have my act together and am super productive. Right now I am really working on my niche, I have some great ideas to incorporate into Billiejo’s Kitchen. I love creating recipes, baking and cooking. But I love being a mom. Yes I am a new mom at 48 to three kiddos. So how do I do it? Well I have some ideas I am going to try. So stay tuned. Definitely expect to see more little hands in videos and pictures. 

What is a dream you are chasing? How can I support you? How can I encourage you? If you have kids, remember they are watching and they are cheering you on.

That’s the Dish from my Kitchen to your Kitchen 💕
