Hey! I’m April 😊

smaller about me

Thanks for spending some time in my happy place. I hope it makes your day a little brighter!

I’m married to my best friend and the mom of two awesome little boys (and another little boy will be joining us October 2018!). My husband works as a police officer, and I’m a full-time homemaker/stay-at-home mom/homeschooler. I’ve always been artsy and have been drawn to creative stuff like drawing, photography, graphic design, HTML/CSS, etc. Now that I’m a busy homeschooling mom, I use my creativity in other ways. Now I do grown up things like gardening, organizing, cleaning, cooking, teaching my boys, and trying to prioritize important things first. We are building our very first house (that will hopefully be move-in ready sometime in August 2018) and I can’t wait to get creative and turn that beautiful house into our very own haven <3.

This blog is where I keep a record of what our family is up to for far away friends and family (hi mom!). It also serves as a family journal/scrapbook for myself. Our own little piece of family history. I hope our kids will enjoy flipping through these digital pages and reliving their childhood someday. I hope by sharing our journey that we can inspire you in some way. We are just an ordinary family with struggles and triumphs, probably not much different than yours. I try to focus on the triumphs here, and find the silver lining in the trials. In my experience, life is sweeter that way.

We are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and many times my posts are related to our faith. Visit Mormon.org to learn more about what we believe.
