About Me


My name is Anne and  I am a wife and mother to 4 wonderful girls, bonus mama to 3 more.   I love being a stay at home mom and making life beautiful for my family.  I love cooking and fun activities with my children.  I feel one of my greatest responsibilities is using our limited budget to it’s fullest potential.  This is my career, making the most of what my husband makes.



  My personal goals focus on living in a frugal way that can allow me to stay at home with our children on my husband’s income and on parenting my children in a gentle way that encourages them to explore who they are now and who they aspire to become.   A few of my friends encouraged me to start a blog that may be able to reach more women!  I love reading other people’s blogs and I think that the time that they take and the sharing that they do is so admirable and inspiring.  So I’ve finally decided to take the plunge.  I know I have a lot to learn about this new way of putting myself out there but I am so excited stretch myself, learn new things, and meet new people.

So here I am and we’ll see where we can go from here!  If you read this and stick with me then thank you.  And if you can take anything from this blog that helps you to make your life more beautiful then please share with me.  I would love to hear your stories and inspirations as well.

    I enjoyed reading this! I also enjoy being a stay at home mom, and I also try to stretch my husband’s income as far as I can. He works hard at work and I enjoy working at home. I loved researching cloth diapers also when I was pregnant with my first! (I saw your post on that).

    I started a blog this year as well and I am really enjoying sharing all I have learned over the years as a stay at home mom. So, we seem to have alot in common! :)

      It seems we do have a lot in common. I would enjoy talking together some time, I love “meeting” women who share my interests. Thank you for stopping in for a visit!

    You have a big, incredibly beautiful family, Anne. I love being a stay at home mom too. I always knew I wanted to be one and it was a dream come true when I was able to finally do it. I can’t even imagine 7 kids. Wow! I have 2 and they are 9 years apart, which saved me from ever having 2 in diapers, 2 teenagers… :) I’m truly impressed by you!
