Hi, I’m Kelly Maroney. First, let me say thank you for taking the time to read my blog! When I started blogging, I thought it was a real possibility that it would be read by two people: my mom and my sister! So, I’m thrilled to be able to share my stories with more than my immediate family members. You can learn why I started blogging in the first place here.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. As a working mom, I’m constantly trying to strike the perfect balance between my career and my home life. I’m the Marketing Director for an IT consulting company. And while I love my job, my real passion is my family.
I actually met my husband in high school. We lived around the corner from each other. Rode the same bus to school. But we never talked…were never friends. I thought he was a “nerd”…he thought I was a “snob”. However, it’s funny how things change over time. About 10 years later, we “re-met” in grad school. I was sitting in my first class and I looked up and saw him. I instantly recognized him. He sat down next to me, and the rest…well, the rest is history. We dated 4 years and were married in 2007.
Besides spending time at home with my “peeps”, I have lots of interests. I recently ran my first marathon–a true life changing event for me. Not so much the actual race, but in the training I realized that things that I once considered absolutely impossible, weren’t….that I could do anything if I worked for it. I also love indulging my creative side–writing and reading have been long loves for me and I’ve also started learning about photography.
Two of my core beliefs…
- I believe that everyone has the ability to make a real difference in the world…you just have to put your mind to it.
- That life is short–you need to make it count. Kindness, love and generosity are the keys to making this happen.
