My name is LaSandra and I reluctantly started this blog in 2008.
Why was I reluctant, you ask? Well, in 2008, I was only about 4 years into marriage and was a young mom of 2 toddlers. I was still new to the whole "Stay at Home Mom" thing and was spending most days feeling alone and like I was
crazy in over my head.
Fortunately, this was at a time when mom blogs were springing up all over the web! I quickly became enamored with these blogs and wanted to create my own. Nevertheless, I knew that unlike many of the moms whose blogs I was reading, I wasn't an "expert" at marriage, or mothering, or homemaking. In fact, I was a novice. I was using the blogosphere as a sort of classroom - to learn, to connect, to be inspired.
Eventually, I took the plunge and wrote my first post. I figured that although I wouldn't be able to offer much expert advice, I could still use my blog as a way to share, process and capture my journey as a woman, wife and mother. Let me tell you, I am so glad I did! Not only have I had fun connecting with so many other moms and friends, blogging has been a great way to document so much of my family's life, during a time when things were moving fast. Many of these years now feel like I blur. I smile, and laugh and shake my head as I read old posts, grateful that I captured these precious moments.
On this blog, you will find everything from random ideas and experiences to the birth stories of my children. When I was getting real creative (and I little desperate), I wrote notes to my postpartum self and pregnant self. You will find that I have celebrated my hubby here over the years (he deserves it) and laughed out loud at my kids on many occasions.
In addition to my husband and my children, I also love Jesus, music, coffee, holidays, and Target. Consequently, you will find much here on these topics. I like to have a good laugh and to be a source of encouragement whenever I can. Hopefully, you will find a story that causes you to chuckle or that inspires you to keep pressing forward.
You'll see that in the past few years, my blogging has taken a back seat to - well, life. Nevertheless, I see the value in continuing even if its just here and there. Thank you to all of you that have read, commented, and shared in my journey along the way!
