Blogging Take Two...
I started this in 2007 and life got overwhelming, I felt like all I was doing was whining on here, so I stopped... Here I am again, hoping that I can take this up again and turn it into more of a hobby. A little about me...I am a sahm of two wonderful children and wife to the best husband in the world. I love to scrapbook, cooking, cardmaking and doing all types of crafts. I've been scrapping for the past eight years and love it. It's my creative outlet and such a great way to preserve family memories. I am a tactile person and to be able to go into my scrap/craft room and play is such a great thing, although I've been dabbling in digital scrapping lately and love that too. Beyond that I love to read, going to theme parks and just spending time loving on my family. We live near Orlando so we do go to the parks a lot.
THE KIDS: Taylor is my 14 year old daughter. She's my stepdaughter but I couldn't love her more if she was biologically mine. I've been in her life since she was three, and couldn't imagine it without her. We share custody with her mom and live in the same town. We are one of those rare divorced families that get along great. It's what's best for the kids, and makes life a lot easier that way too. She is a freshman in high school and is very active in church, the school chorus and foreign language club.Matthew is my little joy, and is all boy. He is 28 months old, and I have to say, it is incredible watching this little being grow. He is just amazing. He gets into everything and is true to the term ALL BOY. I love it! We stay involved in playgroups, and go to My Gym and Kindermusik for mommy and me classes and go to the YMCA, which he gets time away from Mommy with other little ones while she works out. Matthew is our little miracle. We tried for four years to have a baby before seeing a specialist. Our first round of treatments we were pregnant. I was totally amazed! What a wonderful gift from God.
My wonderful husband... Aaron is the love of my life. I couldn't imagine what it would be like if I didn't meet him. He is my rock, my night in shining armor. We love spending time together and do everything we can to make our kids' lives wonderful. He works for an oil company as the regional manager for the past sixteen years. He is very good at his job, and even though at times it is tedious, he does great. He is very musically inclined, (which is where Taylor gets it from) and loves to play the guitar, write songs, record, play the harmonica and drums. He always puts us first and is such a fantastic father. I couldn't have asked for a better one.
I'm hoping to turn this into an informative blog about life as a stay at home mom, crafter and chef. I love sharing what I learn and learning from others, so I hope you enjoy this!
