My life has been blessed  with many roles – daughter, sister, auntie, friend, wife, teacher. The roles I have played and the life lessons I have learned were my stepping stones to the greatest and most important role of all – being a mother.

Midnight wakings, soothing sick little girls, difficulties of potty training and tantrums are the small pieces of parenting that quickly fades from my mind thanks to all the joys of motherhood. The true memories that last forever are the first steps, hearing for the first time, “I wuv you Mommy”, the little faces overwhelmed with joy because of the accomplishments in tasks of dressing oneself, winning their first game of Candyland or creating the perfect piece of artwork. Being a mother is the greatest gift and right now, I am at the time in my life where I am embracing it, living each day in the moment with my family – and loving every minute of it.

This is who I am as a mother. But, who am I?

My name is Michelle. I am a woman who loves to shop. I have drawers full of beauty products, but always resort back to my favorites. I have a closet full of shoes, but usually end up in flip-flops. I have an abundance of clothing items, but in the summer I prefer sundresses and in the winter comfortable jeans suit me best. When I want to relax, a bubble bath is my best friend and Native American flute music and a good book are my companions. I love to cook when it consist of directions, simplicity and a glass of wine. When my home is in order, my thoughts flow freely. Blogging is my time away, my time to relax, to share my moments and to get to know the world through the eyes of beautiful people everywhere. The little things in life bring me the greatest pleasures and I find true beauty within nature. I can be completely “girlie”, but my favorite stress reliever is riding dirtbikes. Yoga keeps me centered and each and every day of my life, I try to appreciate the things that matter most – my friends and my family.

I would love for you to stick around, get to know me and my family better, enjoy my blog and share the beautiful pieces of you.
