Welcome to my blog! This is a place where I will share the beautiful mess that is motherhood, as I see it. My journey began 9- years ago when my first son was born. I was newly married, just into my early twenties, and not prepared in the least. Our family grew quickly, having our 6th child at age 31. Over these 9-years, I’ve learned to juggle a large family on one income, how to manage a house, and even keep most of us happy a majority of the time. We have had to learn how to parent three children with autism, which keeps us busy, and experienced a devastating loss when our son Rhys passed away. Life has been crazy, and this season is exhausting but I believe these are the best years of our lives. I have found a way to wake up every day and carry the grief of a brokenhearted mother, and still be present and joyful in this season we are in. It isn’t always easy, but join me as I share the good, bad, and the messy!
