As a perpetually busy mama of four perpetually busy kids, most days I am split in a dozen different directions, trying to stay on top of things.

While you are there feel free to browse– Keri’s blog is a wonderful resource for all things family, faith, marriage and motherhood. Some of my favorite posts are 9 Marriage Tips and Ways to Enjoy Your Season. You will find some easy family-approved recipes (I made this twice) and kids activities (I want to try the “Puffy Snowman” with my toddler). I really like Keri’s emphasis on being present in the “now” and making the best of it. Thanks, for having me, Keri!
