A Journey to Real Food

  Our real food journey started in 2009. The same year our daughter was born. I had so much to learn. It was overwhelming. Our budget was small. We almost lost our house. I desperately wanted to be a stay at home mom, but we we're exactly for sure how to make that happen. There wasn't room for trial and error. I needed a plan that worked. If I went over on the grocery budget, bills wouldn't get paid, and utilities would be cut off. We made do and did without. I tried my best to … [Read more...]

10 Things

While I do not have teenagers yet, I do have two daughters. This season of littles will come to a close and the season of teenagers will be here before I am ready. Honestly, it scares me to death!

I'll be the first to admit that having 4 children ages 5 and under isn't easy. It is a blessing. I mean, this is what I dreamed about. I love my children. I can't imagine my life any other way. But some days, I just want to hide in the closet and drink in the silence. Life with littles is hard. We recently took a weekend to get away as a family. Our first overnight trip with 4 children. Yes, we're crazy. Just to get everyone packed and out the door was an adventure in and of itself. But we … [Read more...]

I am back at it, at least this week. I have missed connecting with my Five Minute Friday family.

We then link up and encourage each other. It's an amazing community. Tonight's prompt is... Change Change is hard. Change can be refining. This has been a year of change. After living in our house for … [Read more...]

Back to School Printables

I LOVE seeing all the First Day of School pictures. It's so fun. At the end of the school year, you can take a picture of your child holding the First Day of School picture! Those are great to see how much your littles have grown. But if you're like me, you may have missed the "First Day" picture. Oops! It gets a little crazy around here sometimes. When I went to grab my camera, the battery was dead. I got sidetracked, and forgot until everyone was already in bed. Ugh. I was super … [Read more...]
