Share the Wealth

Hi, Family and Friends!

I have every intention of putting together a belated Thanksgiving soon as I'm feeling human again. The Husband and I have matching cases of strep throat this weekend and child #3 went to bed last night, at 7pm, with a slight fever. The good times never end 'round here. You're so jealous of our awesomeness, aren't you?

In the meantime, I'm going to share a link to one of my favorite bloggers. I know lots of you are my family and friends, so you're here to read only because you know me. You're probably not terribly interested in reading the adventures of someone you don't know. A handful of you, however, are new bloggers like me. You might enjoy reading someone else's work now and then...especially when the writer's block sets in.

Her name is Stacey and she is a stay-at-home Momma with 4 very small children. She is one of the people who inspired me to start my own blog, although she doesn't know that. She has a way of creating eloquent, moving posts out of the most mundane parts of motherhood. You can find her over here. In case that link doesn't work, her blog address is

For the rest of you, I apologize for my illness-induced silence. As a peace offering, here are some pics of the kids:

  1. You are so sweet. I am glad that I can inspire anyone to anything besides a temper tantrum ;-)

    I'm thrilled to have even a small part in convincing someone to write and save memories for their kids.

    So, you know the next step in a blogger's career right? You ask for a custom design for Christmas. I did it for my much fun. I'm kidding. Resist. It's lovely just the way it is.

  2. I read anymommy's blog, and seriously LOL'ed! It's hilarious. I wish I could write like that. Had to to stop after the first page, or I would have been here 'til midnight, and I really must get to bed.


I'd love to hear from you!
