“The joy we feel has little to do with the circumstances of our lives and everything to do with the focus of our lives.”

-Russel M. Nelson

I’m a mother of 3 cute and crazy kids, striving to make the most of motherhood one day at a time.  This blog is where I talk about everything from our adventures to our budget.  Motherhood encapsulates so much!  Over the past ten years I have benefited greatly from mothers who share their ideas online.  I’ve decided to be a contributor and not just a consumer of ideas, and hope to support the great cause of motherhood.  I share my ideas only to inspire ideas in others.  Do what works best for YOUR family!  As a young mother I would read parenting books and blogs often.  I would try to implement the exact ideas I read and then feel like a failure when they didn’t work for my family.  The truth is, there’s no “one-size-fits-all” method when it comes to raising a family!  Do what you feel inspired to do for your family and leave the rest behind, guilt-free!
