When our first baby was placed in my arms I knew there was no place I wanted to be other than home with him every day. Twenty seven years, and five more babies later, (six children, now ages 29-11), I still feel the same. I can’t imagine a more challenging, fulfilling, rewarding “job” than being a mom. It truly is a vocation, and I feel blessed beyond measure.

I love ordinary days, good books, babies, cookies and summer.  Also deep conversations, simple meals, and beautiful gardens and a clutter free home.  I have been sharing my journey through motherhood and life on my blog for almost 16 years.

In 2016 I was diagnosed with a rare breast cancer called Triple Negative.  The cancer relapsed at the beginning of 2023.  I also soon after began enduring the devastating and traumatic loss of my marriage.  I feel like a survivor in the true sense of the word.  I realized through suffering that we don't always choose the crosses we carry, but that we have a choice every day to see the good and the blessings in our lives in spite of the tragedies. 

One step at a time, one day at a time, life is beautiful.
