life as a family of seven

It’s busy. It’s chaotic. It’s loud. Very loud. I love it (90% of the time. The other 10% makes me want to pull my hair out and/or run away screaming like a banshee.)

The newborn/infant fog has lifted and I believe we’ve found our new normal as a family of seven. As we’re starting to wind down from our summer flurry of outdoor activity (hello, hiking, my old friend!) and preparing for the upcoming home school year, I’m reflecting how much I actually LOVE my life.

There are hard things, for sure. I cry a lot…like, at least once a week. But I find so much fulfillment and joy in being a hardworking housewife and a mama to these blessings, and I am (for the most part) content and grateful for the life I’ve been given.

I’ve finally gotten with the times and learned how to post from my phone, so I’m hoping to be more present here. I look forward to reconnecting with all of my lovely bloggy friends and sharing bits and pieces of our simple yet crazy life. Oh, and recipes. I have so many to share I don’t know where to start!



Happy weekending, everyone!
