About Me

2012-02-15 10.58.56

I’m a 32 year old Christian wife, mom of three littles and stepmom of two bigs. I stay home with all five and write about our life the way I see it so as not to forget the good, the funny, the hard and the beautiful.

I try to write about the simple things that bring me joy, how our blended family works and the way I miss my mom who passed away in 2007. I process and I feel and I like to joke that blogging is my way of figuring out my world.

Thanks for visiting, I do hope you’ll stay awhile.



In addition to this blog, I currently write at Star Tribune and Red Current App. 

Other Highlights:

Freelancer for Minneapolis Star Tribune: 2006

Cribsheet Guest Blogger: 2006-2008

Our family and my blog have been also profiled in both the Minneapolis Star Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

In 2009 I had my first book contribution published.

We were considered by the Dr. Phil show in the fall of 2009 for a show on stepfamilies. We weren’t chosen because we’re too happy. And that’s ok!

In December 2010, my son’s 4th birthday party was profiled in Minnesota Parent.
