Lindsay Paulson

You know the moms who bake delicious treats for school, throw Pinterest-worthy birthday parties, and have picture-perfect Christmas cards with the whole family in matching pjs? Lindsay is the exact opposite of that. What she lacks in creativity, skill, and simple willingness to do ALL the things, she tries to replace by being present, patient, and positive. Her top priorities are her family - her husband, Chris, two boys born in 2018 and 2020, and dog, Burton - herself, and her work in public relations. When it comes to herself, exercise, gratitude, and mindfulness keep her well. Her first love is running and she has run marathons in several exciting places, including Boston, Chicago (which she ran pregnant with her first son), Duluth, and of course, Fargo. Her writing is often based on personal stories, with a touch of humor, and lots of honesty. She hopes all moms know how strong they are and encourages you to embrace who you are, rather than try to be who you think you should be. Read more from her on her site Wellness in Real Life.
