Like so many others I know, I am a mother, wife, daughter, and friend. But more than all that, or rather, what shapes all my other roles is that I am an individual created by God to be uniquely me. He created me in His image and gave me a love for my husband to serve him as the head of our household, an intense passion for my children, a connection with my mom that grows deeper every year, and a love for the friends He has placed in my life–to help lift up and encourage them as they do for me; and above all, the ability to laugh without fear of the future knowing I am safe in His hands. Let this be a place we can all come together and enjoy discussing all the things that make our houses our homes: kids, beauty stuff, recipes, decor, and especially how to find joy through it all! My personal motto: Life is full of the Mondays–find joy in them and you will find joy in anything. Take that joy, live simply, and celebrate life. And NEVER be afraid of laugh lines!
