Hi, my name is Kara and I’m wife to my wonderful husband (going on five years) and mom to two sweet kids (3 and 1) with the third on the way. I spend a lot of time at home rearranging our furniture, cleaning food off the floor, reading Thomas the Tank Engine, and (literally) chasing the light around the house. It’s the life I dreamed of. I love it but a lot of days are hard so I try to keep perspective on the long days, short years.

Blogging began as a way to record these long days, to see the beauty, and to be more intentional about life at home. I blog about life at home, motherhood, and how I’m learning to cut back on the excess things in my life. I love connecting with other moms that are right in the thick of it with me. My hope and prayer is that this blog can provide a place for you to take a breath, receive some perspective, and walk away with some ideas to simplify your days.

Any questions? Please ask. And I’d love to hear about you!
