What it's all about

So what's my blog going to be about? I've been asked a couple times.  I should say. And get back to writing.
I will post about the things that are important to me, what I think about, what I love learning about, what inspires me, and the things that are happening in my life.
I hope to share some DIYs, decor inspirations, our personal renos, links to other blogs I've been checking out, books I'm reading, meal ideas/recipies, health tips and opinions, my photographs, anecdotes, family stories and updates, and general thoughts among other things.
Sometimes I read, see or do something, or my kids do or say something that I think is just brilliant... Now I have somewhere to share. :)
I'm looking forward to this.... And I already feel that I have so many ideas.. Like I have some catching up to do!
Til next time.....

My world

I think its fitting that my first post be about "my world".
Dan's my hubby. We've been together for more years than I can keep track of. We started dating when I was in highschool, and too many years later we got married (7-7-7).  I adore him. He takes care of me, loves, supports and encourages me, and has always been able to make me laugh.  Daniel is an amazing dada to our kiddies.
Isabella is my baby girl. She's almost three years old!!! (how'd that happen?) She's is so sweet, affectionate, cuddly, and loving (is this redundant?).  I also think she's pretty smart, and independent. She LOVES to sing and read. She is a little shy, but friendly and warms up to almost everyone, and then talks about them for ages. She's constantly saying the funniest things that surprise us.  
Benjamin is my little boy. He's about 16 months old now.  Ya, I know they are close in age. We did that on purpose. I hoped that they would be as close as my younger sister and I (she and I are 18 months apart, my kids are 19.5 months apart). He's so stinkin adorable. Well, I think so anyways!  He's happy and so curious and mischevioius.  As well as Bella, he's very cuddly and affectionate.  Ben's happy to be around anyone, but he's a total momma's boy.  And his smile makes me melt! I absolutely love watching my kids play together, and do things together. Sometimes one will go and hug or kiss the other one out of the blue. These are some of my proudest momma moments.
These are the biggest part of my world.  I love them with all my heart (ask my kids; I tell them every night).
I've heard that you are the sum of the five people you spend the most time with.  These three really make up a lot of who I am.

The other most wonderful parts of my life are my family, my in laws and my most amazing friends. I am lucky and feel so blessed to have the families and friends that I do. I am so grateful.
They make this my good little life.
