Introduction They don't offer a degree on life, on being a mother or being a wife. I'm lucky I have great examples and resources around me, so I'm learning as I go along. I like writing notes. I like making lists. I like scribbling on margins. I have notes in my head that are waiting to be written and scrapbooks that I've yet to put together. And even more recipes to try and sewing projects to get done. I like taking care of my family but sometimes it stresses me out. So I constantly remind myself that I don't need to be perfect, but just be the best person I can be. I like to keep things organized (or at least try to keep things organized). Hopefully this blog will help me do just that. :-)
