Be Patient- The Posts Get Better From Here!

As my first post in the world of blogging, with very little knowledge of the trade, this will be short and sweet. It will also be read by a small few, if any, so I've told myself to not worry too much about how it looks or what it says. The patience is more for me than anyone reading my newborn blog! 

For starters, let me tell you a little about myself. I am a mother to two handsome young men whom I am very proud of- my fifteen year old is a sophomore in high school and a star on the school's wrestling team, and my ten year old is in fifth grade and just started playing the trombone in the school band. For the purpose of keeping the peace, I'll admit that our fifteen year old is my step-son. But as the saying goes, love is thicker than blood, and I couldn't love him more. While many women claim their husbands are amazing, mine truly is- he somehow puts up with me and all of my idiosyncrasies! My wonderful husband is a bit of a jack of all trades, quite talented in a handful of areas, is a great father to our boys, and has one of the biggest hearts I've ever seen. Some of my future posts may even be about something he's working on, rather than my own projects.

I have managed to gain experience in many areas of life, including the wonderful world of groceries, banking, management, the service industry as well as many others, and last but definitely not least, marriage and parenthood. While I hadn't considered myself a homemaker or stay at home mother until recently, both of these jobs have been a part of my life as long as I've been a parent and a wife. As a family, we've experienced good times and bad, financial security and financial insecurity. I've also gotten to experience the joy struggles of being a part-time student at the same time as all of the above, so I feel I can relate to just about everyone out there!

My blog title may seem vague, but I have no intention of talking about just one subject throughout my entire blog. You won't see posts about just recipes, parenting tips, finances, gardening or crafts. I'll have posts about all of these topics, and many more. My blog title defines what I believe in- better living for myself and my family, and better living for you. You'll find tips, tricks and projects I've had handed down to me from family and friends or found browsing the web, particularly from my favorite site, 

If you're with me from the start, welcome aboard, and thank you! It will be an adventure for us both, but there should be a lot of learning involved also. Oh, and don't forget to leave comments and feedback!

I'll see you again soon, and don't forget to live better today than you did yesterday!

  1. A wise man once said (about his step children) there are not steps in our house. I love that saying, how wonderfully loved his step children must have felt!
