Howdy, Hello, and Welcome!


Let me tell you a little about myself and my family. I’m a twenty something wife and mother with the heart of a kid. It still surprises me when I stop and think “gee whiz I have 3 -THREE- kids! How is that possible?! Aren’t I still like 18?!”

I’m happily married to my Mr. Wonderful. Brandon and I met in junior college. Later I gave him a reference for a job where I was working. I fell for him pretty quick. And after almost 2 years working together, both in a very active on campus club, and at work Brandon finally fell for me too.

We now have three beautiful children and hope to add another to our crew in the future.

Gracie is our 4 year old daughter, is the life of the party around here. She’s a very verbal, hard headed, and spunky child. And we wouldn’t trade her for the world, she brings us such joy.

Skeet is our 2 year old son. He is a precious little love, full of smiles, giggles, and determination. He is truely the embodiment of “monkey see monkey do.” His laugh is contagious!

Laney is our newest addition. At just ten months old she is our bundle of love. She is no longer content to watch the chaos. Now she would much rather join in. Her bubbly voice and smile is medication to the soul.

We live out in the country with our 2 dogs, 1 cat, and 15 chickens. It’s like a zoo around here – And I love it!

This blog is my attempt to spread a little joy, while sharing bits of wisdom and encouragement. To help you find just right thing to brighten your day, or give you a little motivation, I organize all of my posts by category. Aaaand you can find all of those categories right up there ^^^ in that main menu at the top! Some of my most common subjects are my children, and handy tips for things all around the house (from budgeting, to gardening, and most points in between.) I also write a great deal about my personal, and ongoing struggle with depression; these posts can be found in the My Heart category. The next category is where I post things that I observe from a Christian perspective (non-Christrians may still find these posts helpful, but I ask that you remember — and respect — that they are not written to you, so most of your potential disagreements with them are moot points here.) And lastly we have the random corner of my brain. These posts can go from strictly for fun, up to current hot topic events.

Enjoy your time here, and if you see anything that you really like, be sure and share it with your friends!

Bethany =)
