Homemaker In My Heart

It's really  no surprise to me that  I am a homemaker. But if you knew me when I was growing up, you would never have pegged me as one. Looking back, I didn't know at the time either that was actually my calling.
I was a mess as a kid and even into my 20's. But when I look back I see all the signs of a homemaker in progress.
For example, I was a horrible student in every grade. I failed so many classes over the years. But the classes I didn't fail, and even excelled in, were Home Ec and cooking classes. PE too which is odd because I am no where near being athletic.
In Home Ec I successfully raised egg babies and learned how to care for children and the home. In my cooking classes, which I took all 4 years of highschool, I found my favorite thing to do was copy recipes onto recipe cards.
Fast forward to present day and you will see I am doing exactly those things. I am not doing math or science. I am homemaking and raising kids. I am also collecting old cookbooks and have a stash of old recipe boxes.
I held many jobs before becoming a mother including being a hairdresser and an EMT. I am neither of those things professionally anymore but I am an amateur. Learning those skills after highschool apply to my life now. I cut my entire family's hair, and doctor their wounds.
From the time I was a little girl, all the way until the time I became a mother, I longed to be with women who were homemakers. I idolized them. I never knew why.
Now I do!

How do?

Hello one and all! Actually hello to only me right now, as I have zero followers! This is my very first blog post so please forgive me if it's a total snooze fest.
I suppose I should explain the name, Marvelous Memories. In a nutshell, I collect my memories and share them with you. Only the marvelous ones!
I will share my thoughts, photo's and likes with you. I love the pop culture of my childhood. I am a child of the 70's & 80's. I use to have 80's hair, now I'm told I have 70's hair. That is a compliment to me!
I am also obsessed with learning about the daily lives of women in the past. Particularly the daily lives around the household.
So come along on this ride into the past and have some fun!
