About Me

On March 6, 2007 I was 6 months pregnant and walking on the sidewalk to pick my daughter up from school.  I was hit from behind by an intoxicated driver who drove up onto the sidewalk and pushed me 8-10 feet down into the cement ditch below.  I survived the accident, and after much hope and prayer so did my baby daughter.  Doctors were amazed.  After this experience, I learned first-hand that life is precious.  I believe more than ever that each moment and each memory counts.

On my website,, I'm all about finding the sunshine in the clouds of life!  I talk a lot about treasuring family memories and finding ways to create meaningful moments with the ones we love.  It's family lifestyle blog, so I cover all things relating to families--parenting, recipes, children's ideas, crafts, DIY, safety, and finding joy through hard times.  I'm a down-to-earth, normal, freckle-faced girl who believes in kindness and sharing goodness with the world. 

I like having the sponsorship of good products, services, and blogs.  This is a family site with an emphasis on making life meaningful and finding the sunshine in the clouds of life.   I consider very carefully those who would like a review or place an ad.  

Email me at if you would like to place a monthly ad or would like to see my media kit.  I'll be happy to talk with you.


I am passionate about trying to enjoy life and make each day meaningful.  

Let me introduce myself just a little here.  I've been married for 17 years to My Man.  My Man is  energetic, hard-working, and sometimes impulsive.  I'm calm, careful, and sometimes shy.  He loves to joke. I love to laugh.  He cooks.  I'm learning to cook.  He loves tools.  I love books.  He likes scuba diving.  I like camping.  He hates chocolate (gasp!).  I love chocolate.  He's into medicine and keeping germs at bay.  He loves everyone to have clean hands before meals.  I'm independent and I try to be crafty (though it doesn't always work).  I enjoy children and kid stuff.  I strive for balance in all things. I love the dishwasher to be neatly organized.  He leaves his socks on the floor.  I leave the bed unmade.  We both love trying new ideas and being creative.

Together we have 3 energetic children.  Sweet Tween is 14 years old.  Little Son is 12 years old.  Baby Girl is 8 years old.

Sweet Tween is social, dramatic, and full of giggles.  She's an avid reader and a good writer.  She's tenderhearted, strong-willed, and opinionated.  She is quite out-spoken, but she's sweet too. She loves people and helping others.  She works hard and laughs a lot.  She's also a HUGE help to me.

Little Son is a thinker.  He loves learning and reading non-fiction.  He's super competitive (sometimes to point of tears) in everything and so he loves sports, and any kind of challenge or game.  He's careful, loves routine, and has a very soft heart.  He works hard and learns quickly.  He's fun to play with and he loves to talk too.

Baby Girl is a little person, but she makes sure she is heard.  She is determined and organized.  She's sweet and sometimes patient, but doesn't allow herself to stepped on.  She has quite the sense of humor and is pretty "street smart". She's into dolls and dress-up and growing up too fast.  She is calm and sometimes hard to read.  Generally, she is just happy and goes with the flow.  She is very smart and easy to get along with.

We live in a smallish city in Davis County, Utah, but spent 10 years living in the humid South while My Man finished med school.  Religion plays a huge part in our lives as does our extended family.   We are LDS (Mormons) and we love God, family, and living life as best we can.  We are striving for a fun, balanced, value-centered home.  Things don't always work out for us, but that is life . . . so here goes nothing!
