I'm Amber. I started this blog several years ago shortly after becoming a mommy for the first time. I wanted a place to "store" memories of my family and a place to reflect on both the challenging and the joyful times in child rearing and parenting.
There is nothing as sacred to me as my role as momma. God knew exactly what he was doing when he graced my life, TWICE, by these little people that have forever seared themselves in my heart.
I spend most of my time with these these fair-headed, (nearly) Irish twins - and I've never been more contented. These two peas in a pod (with their super-kid powers) have the ability to make me both laugh hysterically and cry from exhaustion within a matter of seconds. Parenting is one giant pendulum with the highest of highs and lowest of lows. There is no other role that has refined me, sharpened me and caused me to scrutinize my character, for both the good and the bad, the way that being a mom has. What a GIFT that God chose me to parent these two. It's a good thing he doesn't call the equipped, but equips the called!
Overtime, this blog has slowly evolved from a family blog to a lifestyle blog as I've learned the importance in discovering those things in life that bring me true delight and enjoyment. It is here that I share my love of refinishing furniture, trying new recipes, crafting and creating, and upcycling and repurposing. There are a lot of successes along the way, but also a lot of experiments and failed attempts. And that's okay in my book!
I'll leave you with one last thing. I'm not a blogger by profession, or even by hobby. I blog when I can and when time allows. And so if there are times when posting has become irregular, there's good reason...
So if I seem a little absent from time to time, I'm just pressing into that calling a bit more.
