I've been married to my husband, Kevin, since a frigid but blissfully happy day in February of 2003. Although we're both from CT we met in Ohio (which is a great story which I *promise* to write about someday)!
We have 4 little munchkins:
This is Luke. He's 7 years old and sweet and sunshiny as could be. He's easy-going, eager to try new things, loves to learn and has a heart of gold. His current loves include: Star Wars, Legos, insects, paper airplanes, and Cub Scouts.
Adam:Meet Adam. He is my serious little man. He's 5 going on 50 and so intense that at times I think his eyebrows might be permanently fixed in "brood mode." He's also the biggest goofball when he's feeling silly. He loves to challenge everything (including mommy!), he marches to the beat of his own drum and he sometimes makes me want to pull my hair out. But he's also hilarious, immensely creative and the sweetest cuddle-bug you will ever meet. IF he's in the mood, that is. ;)
ThomasThis is my newest little bundle of joy! He was born in February of 2013 and is the happiest baby ever! He's sweet, easy-going and a champion sleeper, which makes me one happy mama! There's not much else to say about him yet since he's so young, but stay tuned and I'm sure there will be plenty more! :)
About This Blog:
This blog is a mish-mash of all the things that go on in my brain. Here you'll find stories of our homeschoool days, recipes, faith-related posts, craft ideas, memoir pieces... and hopefully a laugh or two! :) You won't find a ton of giveaways or product reviews on this blog, but if I genuinely like something I'll happily share it here. (If you wish to submit something for my consideration, feel free to contact me at: weelittlemiracles (at) yahoo (dot) com. ) Sometimes light-hearted, sometimes a bit more contemplative I use this blog to share, connect, encourage, offer ideas and give thanks to God for His abundant blessings.
Here is a sampling of some of my more popular posts:
Here are some of my personal favorite posts. Near and dear to my heart for various reasons:
I recount the heart-wrenching experience of losing my mother to suicide in 2008, and comfort my faith provided me through it all.
I recall a childhood memory that, at first glance seems rather ordinary, but has had a profound and life-long impact on me.
On the oft-overlooked upside of pain and suffering.
An exploration of the elusive quality of humility, and practical ways we can try to cultivate it.
A celebration of the "small yet big" victories of a mom. This is one of my personal favorites because it sums up much of my life as as stay-at-home mom and homeschooler. It was one of the first posts I ever published back when absolutely no one was reading my blog, but I think it's such an important message.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you'll stay awhile! :)
