Hi! I am a mom to two wonderful children, 18&11 yrs old. My husband is my hero, my friend, and the love of my life. We have moved to a beautiful house just south of the Pittsburgh area and miss our home at the coast! We are active in our local church, our community schools, and support the VFW. We love our extended family, and miss our loved ones who have passed.
I surf blogs looking for ideas and instructions for frugal things, cute crafts, family-building games and trips, great recipes, meaningful devotions, and incredible inexpensive (mostly modest) fashion. I want to learn to sew on a machine, I like to color with the kiddos, I prefer the kitchen to the yard, a bubble bath to a shower, and pink toenails over red.
I’ll be sharing about our life, our food, our crafts, our ups and downs and everything in between.
I hope you’ll visit often and leave a comment now and then!
Favorite feeling in the world is sand between my toes.
So why “mindingmomma”? I kept thinking about that phrase who’s minding the store? And about the children minding me, as I remind them to mind their manners. And I lost my mom just a few years ago, and now who is minding me? Remembering me? Keeping tabs on and caring for me? All the lessons I learned and forgot are coming back as I try to raise our household in the same way, under God’s protection and grace, and with all the love and laughter my husband and I can dole out, just as we received growing up.
Minding momma. Because it’s just me. In a nutshell. Daughter, Sister, Wife, Mother, Aunt, and so much more.
Here are some drawings of our family, by the children, done on a magnetic doodle board…
