About Me

Hi there! My name is Monica.  I’m a mom and a housewife and this is my blog (The Comfort Trunk). I live in El Paso, I am married, have two beautiful babies, and I like to read, write, quilt,  run around (when I can) with my kids, and my favorite season of all time is Autumn.

I hope to utilize this space as a get-together of sorts, for moms and women who are just starting out with a new business (I will eventually start my own with either my quilting or writing), a new phase in their lives, a new relationship, a new project….whatever!  Since I am starting this blog from scratch, I will be posting my progress, however fast or slow, to hopefully inspire women, and especially moms, to see my step-by-step account of how everything turns out!  I am by no means an expert but I like to learn and believe me, I have learned a lot so far.

I also hope to inspire moms and women to write and share their real life experiences of every day life.  As you all know, life is not like the movies, books or glossy like they are in magazines.  (moms really do have a hard time getting rid of belly fat, for example, they really do).

So, let’s have fun and I hope to bring lots of great information on how I (hopefully) succeed and how my hectic life as a mom in a border town really is.  There is a lot of interesting information and I hope you will come along!

    Ideal get the job done you might have done, this website is really cool with excellent facts. Time is God’s technique for keeping every little thing from taking place at the same time.

      As a mother of a uiubtefal almost 3yr old little girl id like to say i LOVE this article! It is right ON THE MONEY’ lol Id like to add I was also one of those mothers whom spent a ton on my child and finally 3yrs later ive came to find that there are sooo many ways to save money yet still have everything you need for your little angel! I myself have a church/food bank where there is a thrift shop and along with myself there are many other Mommys with spoiled children who have spent tons who feel great donating and recieving!! It works both ways, and being a single mother this works GREAT!! Ive gotten things from strollers to full kids kitchen playsets and a ton of books!! Didnt spend a dime!! Places like churches take donations so you can leave with a ton and keep money in your pocket!! Ebay is most definately awesome for kids clothing, bundles for cheap, and you get too see what your paying for which is always good..and yard sales of course if you get there early you almost always find a great deal!!
