My husband, Sam, and I were married in December of 2008,
our first son, Talmage Samuel, was born in October of 2009,
our second son, Wesley Scott, was born in October of 2011,
and our third son, Lincoln Mark, was born in September of 2013.
My goal with this blog is 3-fold:
1-I hope that perhaps along the way I may be able to inspire.
I share my thoughts and experiences as a wife and mother,
my successes and failures,
my faith and my fears.
It is my hope that perhaps as I share some of the insights I gain
through the journey of life,
I may be able to help someone else along their own unique journey.
2-I use this blog to keep a family record.
I started this blog when we lived thousands of miles away from our family members,
and it was a great way to keep them informed.
It still serves as a way to document our day-to-day lives as we grow as a family.
3-Blogging helps me be more intentional in my thoughts and actions.
When I know I'm going to post something each day,
it helps me do more worthwhile and notable things.
I think harder about activities to do with my children,
I see the beauty and the good in each day more fully,
and it helps me reflect more on my life and my faith.
As a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
I fully acknowledge and appreciate the divinity of Jesus Christ and His role as my Savior.
I rejoice in the plain and simple joys of life.
To learn more about each member of our family, continue reading below.
Sam loves science (obviously), studying efficiency, learning about history, roughhousing with our three little bundles of energy, and going on our weekly dates.
He also has a gift of almost never forgetting names and faces!
I love untying knots, outdoor activities, simplicity, organization, music, and creating.
I love finding the extraordinary in the ordinary--because I truly do believe life is extraordinary.
Thank you for visiting!
