Hello there! I am so happy you stopped by. I’m Lindsay, the creator of Uplifting Anchor.
I am a glass FULL of positivity. But I was not always that way.
I have learned to choose and make happy happen in my life. I was doing that pretty well, and then we had a baby!
When I became a mother my whole world shifted. I felt my heart grow, as well as my fears, and it has been a scramble ever since to keep up with the changing times. During the first year with my daughter our family was challenged with a deployment. My husband had to go and I found a strength I never knew existed within me.
I learned the power of asking for help, I discovered patience, a strong love for coffee, and to take great care of myself. I am, after all, the Uplifting Anchor of our household.
I am the balloon and the anchor. I keep us grounded with the mundane everyday tasks that make our little world run. I keep bellies full, bodies washed, clothes folded (no promises on put away) and a house clean-ish. I also lift us each day with kind words, I help our daughter learn lessons, and I put extra love into that one more thing that needs to get done even when I’m bone tired. In this role, I’m figuring out how to balance the balloon and the anchor. It means taking care of the people that mean the most to me… and that includes taking care of ME.
This journey into motherhood fascinates me, and I have found that through words that I can capture my experience. The more I write, the more I can understand that this is my purpose right now. Thus a year after the birth of my little lady, the dream for a blog was born.

As for me, I am a lover of exceptional experiences and believe that there is the POSSIBILITY of ADVENTURE in every day. I love to travel. I love sand between my toes and sunshine on my face. Writing is my love language. Motherhood has made me kinder and more patient, especially to myself, and that is a tremendous blessing. I once was a dancer that took the stage from New York to Italy and even the rocking one of a cruise ship. I love great conversations and wearing aprons. The Lindsay pre-baby is still there, but I like Lindsay post-baby a lot more. She’s calmer, and generally takes life a lot slower and more intentionally.
I’m happy you’re here.
