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!

Date Night on Youtube

My DH took my on a Youtube date night last night. We watched "The Last Lecture: Achieving Your Childhood Dreams," by Randy Pausch. I'm so glad we took time to watch it. It's a dynamic picture-filled lecture given by a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who died last month of complications from pancreatic cancer.

It's a 76 minute talk about understanding your passions, and reaching for goals. It's about the brick walls that interupt our paths, and how they are just there to test how much we really want to achieve our goals. It's about accepting feedback and criticism, because it's a sign that people actually care about your work. It's about living life to the fullest - with passion, determination, and fervor. It's just a really good talk.

I think you and your spouse would enjoy watching it together. It's a great reflective piece on life, marriage and raising children.
