Welcome to my blog, where I share my thoughts about what’s inspiring me. I’m a suburban Southern California woman who is trying to balance modern information, insights, lifestyles and technologies with the slower, more wholesome ways of the past without going completely crazy. My purpose in life is to glorify the God of all in heaven.
I’m the wife of one, the mom of five (or eight), a reader, quilter, crafter, artist, and cook. I’m slowly learning how to nudge my family into the ways that I hope will be more wholesome for us all, body, mind and spirit.
I’m a foster mom with two biological sons, an almost adopted son and daughter living in my house, plus four more kiddos living in my heart. I’m not cut out to be permanent fostering material, and I’d love to just adopt a dozen kids and get it all over with. Waiting for hubby to agree…it could be a while, or forever.
I love coffee and taking photos and fabric and foggy mornings on the beach. I hate putting away laundry and junk mail and whining. If I ever had a whole day to myself, I’d start with coffee and a good book, sew and scrapbook for a while, spend some time outside taking photographs, and eat fresh fruits and vegetables presented in a beautiful way on my plate. Until that free day appears, you’ll find me at home, caring for our house and nurturing my kids so that they can ‘have a happy childhood tucked into their belts.’
Right now my hair is red, my face is freckled, and my body is tired. Today my house is clean, my pants are a bit tight, and my bedroom walls are freshly painted. Check back tomorrow and all of that might change…well, except the freckles. (edited to add: see, I told you things change quickly! I’m a blonde again these days!)
