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.

The night before Arrow was born, I had my sister run over literally just long enough to snap a few pics of us as a family of five.  I guess something in me knew I MUST get those pics done that night (as I was stubborn about it when Zac wasn't up for it, and when the light was fading). 
 The next morning I woke up in labor. 
When Arrow was four days old, a friend from High School photographed our family. 
So here's the NEW US! 
 A family of SIX!
