After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Felicity's Autumn Fairy outfit

I had fun sewing these, but due to our crazy lives these days, I'm glad Logan wanted to be something we already had, which changed from a dragon to an astronaut.  I didn't tell him his astronaut outfit is really an Air Force flight suit because I have no idea how to sew an astronaut outfit.  :)
