Well it is 2013 and I am finally starting to get caught up with technology and the rest of the world!
I thought I would give this blog thing a try.
So, first things first, I should probably introduce myself.
Hello, my name is Lori Thomas.
Like many others, I wear a plethera of ‘hats’ in life. I am a daughter, a grand-daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, a friend, a corporate Wellness Coordinator, a confidant, etc., etc., etc.
The largest (or most important) ‘hats’ that I wear are being a wife and mother.
I am married to Todd, an amazing man who is patient beyond reason, kind-hearted, and loves me and our children. I don’t tell him often enough how much I adore him and how much he means to me. He is an amazing father and an incredible husband. We have four (yes four) beautiful children. Now I know that every mother says that their children are beautiful, but mine really are…and yes I am being facetious so don’t get offended already! LOL! 🙂
Our oldest boy, Logan, will turn 5 years old this March. Yes you read that correctly…our OLDEST of four children is turning 5 this year. So let me take this tangent quickly to answer a few questions:
1. Yes, we are a little crazy.
2. Yes, we are VERY busy and have our hands full!
3. Yes, we know how this happens.
4. No, we are not having any more children and Yes, I am sure because I had the doctor make sure of it! 🙂
Ok, back to the introductions…
As I was saying, Logan will turn 5 this March.
Austin just turned 3 in December.
Alexis (Lexie) turns 2 this Wednesday.
And Liam will be 12 weeks old this Thursday.
My children are my life so you will hear about them frequently. If you are not interested in hearing about children…it was nice meeting you and very nice chatting with you. But this is not the blog for you! 🙂
Another major ‘hat’ that I wear is my professional one. As I stated earlier, I am a corporate Wellness Coordinator. Now to explain what that is exactly. I coordinate all of the internal (designed for the employees of the company) wellness programming (health fairs, incentive programs, presentations, team challenges, onsite wellness center, etc.) for a local corporation. I don’t know the ‘rules’ yet of blogging so I am not sure if it is ok for me to say where I work at this time. I am very proud of my company and I LOVE what I do so if I am allowed to say, you will likely hear about my job and my company quite often as well. Again, if that doesn’t sound appealing, it was nice meeting you…now scram! 🙂
Ok, so now that the boring parts are out of the way…on to the blogging!
I plan to use this site to post my random thoughts and experiences, things I learn, mistakes I make, successes I have and successes I help others achieve. My goal is to reach out and use my life experiences to help others in any way I can. If I make a fool and learn from it, I hope to help others learn from it too without having to go through the making a fool part themselves! My entire career is about helping other people set and accomplish goals in their lives and it is such a passion of mine that I want to do that in any capacity I can…even outside of work. Wellness is not just physical activity and nutrition, but really every aspect of your life.
I will share parenting observances, fun kid-friendly ideas, and sometimes just fun “feel-good” moments from my children.
I hope you choose to follow my blog and that you enjoy me and my random ramblings and life experiences!
I want all to live well and I am the “mama” of these 4 crazy, beautiful beings thus the creation of “livewellmama”!
Enjoy and be sure to make today an incredible day!! 🙂

Awesome! How do I follow?? 🙂
Thanks Amanda! To follow look down at the bottom right hand side of your screen…there should be a little plus sign with the word Follow next to it. Click on that and it will open a box that asks for your email address. If you enter your email address and click ‘Sign me up’ it will email you notifications when new posts are made! Sorry it took so long to answer you…I had to find the answer before I could tell you…LOL! 🙂
Thanks mom! 🙂
Love it! Can’t wait to read more! Thanks for sharing Lori! You are so wise! 🙂
I don’t know about how wise I am, but I definitely have a lot of thoughts floating around in my brain and I love sharing them!! 🙂
