Hello and welcome!  I'm Nicole Hoover, the face and creator behind Home with the Hoovers.
Home with the Hoovers is a modern day lifestyle blog that strives to inspire others to live a happy, healthy and active life.  Here you will find inspirational posts on the topics of health, beauty and fitness as well as the raw, real life moments in motherhood that all contribute to being your best self!  I believe that to be the best that you can be, you must feel comfortable, confident and most of all, proud of who you are.  We all know that life isn't always pretty and as a stay at home mom, it can be downright ugly sometimes.  I no longer let those moments get the best of me and instead focus of beautifying the imperfections of motherhood.  Whether through recipes, photos or real talk, I hope to inspire someone or at the very least, provide a relatable space that others can feel at home.

Home with the Hoovers began shortly after I got married to document my life as a wife and all things that came along with being a newlywed.  While my life has changed significantly since then, this little space of mine has evolved into so much more.  Motherhood has shaped me into the woman I am today, but it was most certainly not as easy road getting there.  I think that a lot of women can relate to the postpartum period where some feel like they lose themselves and I too was unable to escape that.  I had my fair share of dark days. Days that left me feeling that once the dishes were done, the kids were asleep and the house was clean, there was simply nothing left for myself.  I ever so quickly fell into the state of the hot mess and disheveled mom that I said I would never be.  I regrouped, re-evaluated and rediscovered what was important to me and that was feeling my best.  Where am I now?  Today I am the absolute best version of myself, inside and out!  I am constantly working to look good, feel good and make myself proud because all of this contributes to me being a better person and most importantly, a better mom. 

A little about me?  I live in Atlanta with my husband and 3 children.  I love to travel and my ideal vacation would be anywhere with a beach and margarita in hand.  My family is my world, the kitchen is my therapy, fitness maintains my sanity and I live for anything creative. Blogging has been my creative outlet since 2012.  Writing is therapeutic for me and I love seeing my designs and ideas come to life through this platform.  My friends call me "supermom" and while that may appear to be the case here, I assure you that I am just like any other mom out there who is losing my mind all day just to turn around and miss the hell out of my kids when they are asleep.
