So if you are new here, let me fill you in quickly. I'm Shelly. I'm a wife, mother, dog lover, coffee drinker, occasional crafter, and I enjoy cooking and baking.
My husband and I met in college. We've been married almost 9 years ago. We got married young, and it was before the days of Pinterest. (Gasp! How does one plan anything without Pinterest?!?!)
If you didn't guess it from the picture of our wedding, my husband is in the Army. We gone through three deployments and have lived in OK and TN, but recently we've been blessed with the opportunity to move back to New England where we can live near family. We bought our dream home this fall....don't let the phrase "dream home" confuse you though. It's not huge or grand, but it is what we always wanted. My husband and I have had quite a journey together already, but there is no one else I would want to experience the ups and downs with. He is my other half.
Together we have three beautiful children. My heart is so full, and I feel complete. We have two boys and one baby girl. Ryan is 5, Sean is 3, and Leah is 9 months old. These kids are so sweet, stubborn, and absolutely full of personality. I am a stay at home mom, and I feel like I have the best job in the world. That isn't to say that there aren't hard days.
One of the biggest struggle for me with motherhood is being patient. It is something I am constantly working on, hence the name of my blog. Some days are better than others.
What you'll find on my blog is regular tales about motherhood, funny stories about our days, random thoughts from a sleep deprived mom, occasional fashion and beauty posts, and of course pictures. I love connecting with other bloggers, so I hope you'll say hello and stay a while.
