I started this blog to help women find balance in their lives. It chronicles my personal experiences as I muddle through life as a wife, mother, writer and professional craft designer. It contains tips, resources, recipes and plenty of crafty inspiration to help women run a successful home, grow a happy family, and find purpose and fulfillment in their daily lives.
At least three times a week, you will find new articles on topics such as:
- Crafting & Stitching
- Raising Children
- Taking Care of Yourself
- Being Green
In 2003, I thought I had the world on a string. I was in my early 30s and just completed my MBA. I was a successful business consultant. My husband and I were happily married DINKS (Dual Income No Kids). We traveled quite a bit, ate out at the nicest restaurants, wore expensive clothes, and worked. A lot.
Then in 2004, the unbelievable happened. Three years after my husband’s vasectomy, I became pregnant. (And yes, it was his!) Our entire world shattered into a million pieces as we watched our carefully planned, childless future disappear. Yes, we had options, but after quite a few sleepless and tearful nights, we accepted this twist of fate and decided to see where it would lead.
