It's been a while...so let me start over. I am a mother of 4 beautiful, growing daughters. I am the wife of a devoted husband and father. I love to organize and plan. I love to learn and perfect things. I love to share ideas and improve lives. On my own I enjoy reading, watching the news, and scrap booking online. With my husband I love our ballroom dance classes, cooking together, and watching whatever show or movie we are both completely hooked on. As a family I love it when we are outdoors playing or hiking. I love one-on-one moments with my girls--board games, experimenting with hairstyles, coloring & reading.

I have chosen not to blog for a while partly because I wasn't in a happy place but also just to preserve my resources for the people that are most important to me. But oh, how I have missed it! Lately I have been ready. Ready to embrace all the joy I get from regularly recording my experiences. I know that I see more good in my days when I am looking for moments to share. I pick up my camera more often when I know I might blog that picture. I laugh at the hard stuff quicker when I imagine it as a blog story. I love how spending a few minutes recounting a good moment erases hours of hard moments and hard work. After blogging I am suddenly ready to embrace the ups and downs of parenting and living life because I feel more confident that there will be more good and I can see the big picture more clearly.
So, if you choose to follow along...welcome! Someday these will be my treasured memories!
