Hi! Welcome to my little spot on the Internet.
My name is Kelly and I am one busy lady.
You see, my life has always been a bit of a whirlwind. In 2000 I moved from Florida to Texas. In 2001 I was engaged to my husband after dating about a month and a half. In 2002 we were married. Little did we know as we drove off in my Mustang from our wedding reception how our life would change.
Shortly after marriage we learned we were expecting our oldest child. In 2003 Sally* was born. In 2004 her early Christmas gift was her little sister, Dory*. In 2006 we welcomed our first little man, Mater Boy*, into the family. Our youngest, Boo*, was born in 2008. Throughout all of these precious additions we changed jobs many times, moved more times than I can count, and endured a hurricane with a 1-week-old.
Life is crazy.
Who am I though? Simply put, I am a Christian. I strive to serve and love God with all of my heart. Secondly, I am the wife of a man who is the most self-sacrificing and loving man I have ever met. And thirdly? Well, if you read my above paragraph, you know that being mommy is obviously part of my life.
I am a stay-at-home-mom. I love this never-ending, 24/7, roller-coaster of an occupation. There are times when I may find the noise, rice stuck in my socks, lack of naps, and chaos at dinner time too much. At these times I am learning to fully rely on the Lord.
I cook and bake and sew and have attempted to garden. I like writing and reading and playing the piano. And blogging. Oh boy do I love blogging! More than an outlet to share my thoughts this blog has become a place where I can share what I have learned as well as learn from my visitors. I have formed friendships that will last a lifetime and for that I am grateful.
I have many likes: My brown Mary Jane Crocs, date nights with my husband, Dove Chocolate (their dark chocolate is divine!), and coffee.
What will you find here?
Well. A little bit of everything. Homeschooling, sewing, baking, cooking, web design, photography, and healthful eating. I have a passion for learning new things and so much more than what is on this list. It is my desire to share what I learn with others. What I learn I hope will contribute to my homemaking career.
You may have also seen me at The Happy Housewife and occasionally at Blissfully Domestic-Home.
I hope you will stop and get to know me a little bit. Leave a comment just to say hi, give an opinion, or introduce yourself.
Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about who I am. I look forward to getting to know you.
*For privacy purposes, I have changed my childrens’ names to nicknames taken from Pixar movies, some of our favorite family movies.
