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.

I never knew why there were pockets on aprons.  I mean really, who ever stuck a gooey spatula in their apron pocket for safe keeping while cooking?  I figured pockets were a poor attempt at accessorizing the apron, and never added them to any aprons I sewed. night while cooking dinner, I remembered I'd seen a few ripe green beans earlier that day in the garden.  So I rushed out to the front yard, in my apron, to pick a few to add to the veggies I was cooking.  Once out there, I found that there was more than the handful I was expecting!  I was about to go back in for a bowl when I remembered my apron had one of those silly accessories.  :)  So I started shoving green beans in my pocket and the light bulb went off!  AHA!  Pockets on aprons weren't for the cooking wife, they were for the HOMESTEADING wife!  Now I want pockets on all my aprons.  BIG pockets.  And.....I feel quite silly for never understanding the apron pocket before.  :)


  1. You are the best! I miss you guys! Come to my house and play!!!

  2. oh how funny! I distinctly remember my grandmother walking around the kitchen and her garden with random veggies / and sometimes a potato peeler in her apron pocket <3 thanks for the flashback.
