My Ordinary Life

Hi!  Thank you for taking time out of your busy life to check out my blog! I’m so excited to be writing this post- it’s my first blog post ever!  I’ve decided to take the plunge and start my own blog after thinking about it for the past few years.  I had wondered what blogging was all about, and didn’t really have any ideas.  I knew from reading other blogs that I would stumble across on Pinterest, that a lot of stay-at-home moms would blog as their job, and I always thought that sounded like a perfect job!  I chose to stay home when my kids were small and then worked teaching part time until they went to school.  I decided to go back to teaching full time, but I still felt that even though I love my job, there was something I was missing out on.  I think this might be just what I’m looking for.

As I mention in my “About Me” page, I’m a bit of a modern “Suzy Homemaker” and have always loved baking, crafts, planning kids’ parties, and all the fun things that go along with having a family.  I want this blog to be about spending quality time with our families and easy ways we can do that.  You might also find some helpful household tips, and family friendly recipes to try.

Here is a picture of Brackley Beach on Prince Edward Island, where my husband and I went last year for a friend’s wedding.  I love this picture because you can’t help but look at it and be at peace with the world!  I can breath in the salty ocean air, feel the sand squish under my feet and the waves crash over my ankles and the worries just melt away (at least for the moment anyway – but we need to make sure we take those moments!)

I’d love to hear from you!  Comment below to say hi!
