  1. Wow! I have just spent the last few minutes bouncing from one page to another and just reading. As a mom of 3, I totally hear your heart on the article about realizing your own mortality. I love your cupcake tour! and I love reading your adventures! Thanks for joining MVM. Glad you’re there so we can connect!

    • Thanks for reaching out! I love the title “WAHM”….I like that much better than describing myself as a stay at home mom! I so wish I had heard that before! Thanks for checking out my site, looks like we have a couple of kids the same ages too!

  2. Hey Elizabeth:
