Hi there! Welcome to The Sassy Mom, a Lifestyle Blog of a soon-to-be-emptynester. I’ve spent the last 18yrs making a career out of being a stay home mom to our 7 kids and, well….I’m only 3 years from our youngest going to college so I need a plan. What will I do with my time? How to make dinner for two? More time for hobbies? Naked Days with my husband!? Yes, please!

I’m a Certified Professional Coach, an Artist & Illustrator, a Motherhood Maven, fun-haver, pretty things admirer, and chocolate lover.

Over the next 3 years, and beyond, life will change as I enter Empty-Nester-Hood, but never fear, I’ll make the most of it and bring you along for the ride. While I’m figuring it out I’ll be playing with my Art & Illustration business, developing my Personal Style through fun and color, upgrading my Goals + Vision Boards, creating new Marriage Goals and acting on them, Exercise and Fitness for a healthy and fun life, and ways to keep Home & Family a priority.

The Sassy Mom features content written by founder, Kristin Maynes, plus a variety of guest posts from my dog, maybe my husband, possibly my kids, and most definitely from my Mom – she just doesn’t know it yet.

This blog is in honor of our daughter who passed away November 2020 from Leukemia due to complications from Chemo, just 34 days after diagnoses. She lived life to its fullest and took every opportunity to enjoy time with friends and have fun! I’m honoring her by getting outside myself and doing all the things….she’d be so proud!
