I’m a 37-year-old, stay-at-home mom of four trouble-makers.
10 yo Gwen is currently 4th grade-ish in homeschool. She loves to pretend, dress up, dance, wear pink and purple, draw, color, and write stories – she even has her own portfolio!
8 yo JoJo is currently 2nd grade-ish in the same homeschool, hehe. He loves to play with trucks, LEGOs, dirt and other sensory materials, help Daddy, climb stuff, run around, and generally make lots of noise.
5 yo Addy is The Challenging One – we call her Addy with an Addy-tude. She lives loudly, loves loudly, cuts ‘n’ pastes like no one’s business, twirls most seriously and gracefully in tutus, plays the keyboard in between those twirls, and still needs her handmade blankies at night.
1 yo Rainbow Baby Gabe joined us on September 8th after the loss of Shiloh, our angel baby. He is such a joy and I cannot imagine life without him, even if it meant enduring the loss of his sibling. He can be very chill, very vocal, very enthusiastic… and he always has a smile for Mommy.
Trying to live a greener, healthier, simpler life, and be the best wife and mommy I can be.
I’m a Christian, believe in the power of prayer, and rely on God just to make it through the day sometimes.
Writing has often been a therapy for me, as well as a way to keep in touch with others, share ideas and inspiration, encourage in ways that I’ve been encouraged. I find less and less time these days to keep up with regular posting, but every now and then inspiration hits and I stay up when the kids have gone to bed to write a few lines.
Want to keep in touch with our crazy little family and see the kiddos get bigger each day? If I know you in Real Life, request to become a member of my *Shutterfly share site.
Maybe we’ll meet up somewhere together in the journey of this thing called Life. Here are some of the other places you can find me…
*I have been using Shutterfly for years now. My digital images are stored here and I use them to order prints, portraits for the wall, personalized gifts, and annual albums for the kids.
