Stay Sane as a SAHM Interview with Katie Pickett of Joyful Messes

Welcome to my Stay Sane as a SAHM interview series! Every Friday I will interview another SAHM and share it here with you. I absolutely love getting the insights and perspectives of other stay at home moms.

Because we are all in this together.

We are showing stay at home moms that we are strong, smart, and savvy and just trying to figure out what it means to “have it all”.

Being a stay at home mom (aka Millennial Housewife) can be isolating and hard at times. It’s not easy to navigate the waters of being home, changing diapers, cleaning up spills, and doing laundry without any adult contact until your hubby comes home.

That’s why I wanted to give you the chance to see how other Millennial Housewives do it.

You are not alone. There are so many of us out there. WE can form a community to support and trust one another.

This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Katie Pickett with Joyful Messes and Kate’s Web Design Studio. She has over three years professionally designing websites and marketing businesses. She began coding, designing, and studying UX (user experience) while blogging in Norway. The weather was frighteningly cold, so she sat behind the computer learning, analyzing and creating her blog. The light bulb turned on when she realized the same principles are used to create profitable websites and build online brands. She is raising three rambunctious little boys. She starts her mornings early and does most of her design work in the late evenings when her mind is eager for a creative outlet. She recently started her blog Joyful Messes where she shares her personal stories, lessons learned, faith, fitness, fashion and more to help spread joy throughout our days in motherhood.

As you will see in the interview she has a new adorable baby boy, who really wants to be a part of the interview! She shows us the true definition of trying to find harmony when we need to pause the interview to let her take care of her baby because being a mother always comes first! She is a true inspiration and Millennial Housewife and has the amazing ability to juggle her business, blog, and family with such grace.

Because we had to pause, it is in two parts. You can watch both back to back. Enjoy!


I am so grateful to have had Katie share her wonderful and inspirational story with us!
