Hello friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I always love Monday's since it means I have the great pleasure of introducing you to a fab reader. For some reason I thought I had already featured Dawn of Bee and Rose but realized I hadn't so this feature is long overdue(sorry Dawn) If you aren't already following Dawn's blog I know you will be soon. There are so many things I love about Dawn and her blog, for one she very funny and I find a daily dose of Bee and Rose is a must, she also finds the funniest pictures to share and is a fellow small biz owner. Dawn and I share many of the same loves especially when it comes to our TV. Grab a cup of joe and get to know my friend Dawn, you won't be disappointed!
Husband: William age 41, Catherine age 6 and Connor 12 (
Catherine look at her medals!!
How did you start blogging?
I’ve always loved writing. I made a decision on New Year’s Eve 08 to commit to writing in some form at least 3-4x weekly in 2009. I thought the blog forum would be a great way for my family and friends to keep up with us. I also felt I would be more accountable to my writing commitment with this forum. Now I’m hooked!
If you are a parent do you have a parenting philosophy?
*Never lose faith in yourself. *If you can believe it, you can achieve it.
*The Golden Rule ~ Treat others as you would like to be treated.
*Don’t be afraid to speak your truth even if it’s unpopular.
I am here to create a structured, loving place for my kids to discover who they are, surround them with love and teach them to be self sufficient, loving human beings. I want them to be proud of who they are, healthy and live life with joy.
You will never find me without......

We are currently spending lots of time learning about Irish culture since Catherine is very involved in Irish step~dancing. She’s recently started the competition circuit and really loving it!
We also love playing Guitar Hero and Rock Band with Connor. He’s amazing with the guitar! He can play songs on his “real” guitar just by listening to a song a few times…he doesn’t even need to read the music!
