Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Gramma Mary's Rum Cake

My sweetheart's birthday is tomorrow, so we're making one of his favorite cakes. It's a rum cake that his grandmother (Betty Oliver) used to make. His mom just sent me the recipe, so I'm going to make it with the kids this afternoon. I can't wait to taste it!! And I love continuing the tradition of family recipes, so that will make the cake extra special!

4 eggs
