2011 in Review – Life as MOM

The Life as MOM community has been such a blessing to me, and hopefully, to you as well. Let’s review the past year.

Thank you so much for reading along with me this year! It’s been one of adventure, including homeschooling six kids, making ends meet in southern California, writing a cookbook (due out in 2012), and otherwise trying to stay sane — and not be a crabby mom.

I am looking forward to growing and learning alongside you in the new year. I’m so eager to see what 2012 holds for you and for me.

Here’s a review of some of the most popular topics we chatted about this past year. If you missed them, grab a cup of coffee and sit a spell!

  1. I haven’t commented as much as I use to but I still read! I really enjoy your blog and all the recipes! We have so many mixes made up from your blog. Thanks for such a wonderful reprieve in my day!

  2. I just wanted to say, like Christy above, I appreciate your blog! I don’t comment normally, but there have been times where I was having a bad day and then you will have a post about your journey with God and it feels like He is sending me a message through you – those posts mean the most!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
