and so it begins…

Hi, I’m Kristin- a mom of three great kids, wife of one wonderful husband, and longtime lover of blogs.  I’m a bit of a slacker when it comes to documenting the memories of these fleeting years of child-rearing.  I probably don’t take enough photos and videos. I don’t really keep a journal and I certainly don’t scrapbook- though I admire those who do.  But a blog- this seems like a good way to keep a record of our everyday lives.  Not just the “photo worthy” moments- but the everyday,ordinary moments, that when put altogether, make our life.  And that is what I hope to do here.

Let me introduce the players:

Kristin- I am stay-at-home mom interested in all things domestic: cooking, sewing, quilting, gardening. I aspire to live a simple, eco-friendly life centered around home and family.

The husband-my guitar and video game playing hubby of 15 years and my best friend.

The Girl- my 13-year-old book loving, straight-A getting, curly-haired, sweet daughter.

Boy 1- my 11-year-old math loving, straight-A getting, boy scout who is interested in everything son.

Boy 2- my 8-year-old sports loving, straight-A getting, always ready for an adventure son.

These people are the center of my little corner of the world.  And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
