I'm always in search of new recipes and meal ideas for our busy family of 6! I am not a gourmet chef, so the easier the better.  My husband is a talented chef however! I hope you are inspired to try some of the ideas that you see here.

Welcome to my world

Hello everyone and welcome! I am a mother of 4 wonderful children, one furry dog, one rambunctious cat, and lucky enough to be the wife of the man of my dreams.  I have done a little bit of everything. I have worked in retail, human resources, finance, a factory, taught preschool, ran a home daycare, and more. My favorite job by far is being a mom. Raising our children and managing our family is the most fulfilling job I could ever ask for.  And time consuming….

Whether you have one child or 10, you’re probably as busy as I am, but I encourage you to take a few minutes every day to slow down, breathe, and find something that makes you smile.  A few years ago, I began volunteering at our local hospice. The most important thing I have learned from those who are nearing the end of life’s journey, is to take time to value the people in our lives. Don’t spend so much time focusing on the cleanliness of your house, or working all of those extra hours to acquire more stuff.  Spend more time with your family and friends. You’ll never regret it! I hope that my site will give you some time saving and creative ideas. It is also my hope that you will be entertained, uplifted, and encouraged.
