Welcome, welcome!

My first post on this fresh, new blog! Will anyone read it? Well, I guess you are! Fancy that, my words are now being narrated your voice. ;) Welcome, lovey reader! Thanks for visiting!

I hope to fill this blog with encouragement, laughter, recipes, crafts, freebie finds, and a whole lot of fun! May you always leave inspired and glad you stopped by for a visit!

As tempting as it is for all of us to try to paint pictures of perfection, I will aim to be as real with you as possible! I'm not super wife or super mom....although if that position came with a fabulous pink cape that could perhaps tie in the front like a scarf, I'd enjoy alternating between some of these 50+ ways to tie it! ;*)
Also, as much as I love my daughters, and beam with pride over their accomplishments, creativity, and just plain awesomeness, I know they aren't perfect either. The Bible assures me none of us are ~ "as it is written: 'None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God ... no one does good, not even one.'" (Romans 3:11,12) ... plus in my time as their mama, I've seen a few melt downs that weren't for the faint of heart. I will not portray us as an unblemished family, with a white picket fence surrounding our spotless home, where we dine on china each night of the week. I desire to be real with you, my reader & possible future blogger friend. So, just remember if I post a photo of a beautifully decorated mantle, there's a good chance that there's a pile of toys at my feet, and a stack of homeschool curriculum in the corner. "Picture Perfect" can be deceiving. I pray I'll allow you to see the "whole picture". I believe it's more encouraging to share that I too have a heated battle with dirty dishes and laundry, than to pretend I breeze through life as seemingly flawless as June Cleaver.

I'm so honored you took the time to stop by today! Have yourself a fabulous Friday! Hope you'll visit me here again soon!!


Warmly,
Brenda

I would love to hear from you today!! I enjoy reading each and every comment I receive. (I do moderate them before they're published. Gotta keep it family friendly! ;)) My preferred means of replying to you is via email, so please make sure you aren't a "no-reply blogger". It's sad when you take the time to leave a sweet lit'l comment, but I'm unable to reach you with my appreciation. If I can't reply to you through email, I will reply directly below your comment, right here on this post. ;)

Thanks for visiting! Have a fabulous day! :*)
