The alarm clock was cheerily singing away. I was hiding under my covers. My hand slipped out to turn it off, then quickly buried under the blanket again. I did NOT want to get up. I was exhausted. Not the typical "I'm a mom, my kids wear me out" tired. I was tired of life.
It happened as I was cleaning out the fridge one day over the summer. I opened the vegetable bin, and I saw something I have never seen before. A moldy cucumber, just hanging out next to the lettuce.
This is just a little note to let you all know that as of March 24th, I will be a little more "official". I will be getting the domain www.messyfamily.com. I am really excited about this, and looking forward to connecting with more readers, more bloggers, and seeing what is in store for us. See you there!
The package arrived unexpectedly. The package that was full of all the foods that we normally don't let our children eat. But I smiled happily as I passed the contents around and my kids dived right in.
I am so glad you are here! Welcome to my blog. This is your space, too. My name is Amy, and I am no stranger to the ups and downs of life. Join me as we search for beauty, authenticity, tell our truth, and hold space for each other in the messiness of life.
