I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

I've been asked by countless people to start a separate blog just about "couponing" and saving money in general. At first I thought these suggestions were "polite" comments made by people who've read some of my recent posts on the topic. But the more I've spoken with these people, the more I realized that they were serious. I wasn't sure I really had much else to say on the topic, but I've been convinced (by other people) otherwise.

So ... I've caved in ... and started "No June Cleaver." It's going to be primarily about saving money right now.  But eventually I'll probably branch out to discuss various other homemaking topics also - general "turning a house into a home" stuff. But for now, it's about saving money. As a Stay-at-home mom, my husband makes the money, and I feel that one of my responsibilities is to stretch it as far as I can (while still maintaining a "home" feeling).

I just posted my first "new" post on the new blog. So, if you're interested, go check the post out HERE - or the whole blog in general HERE. It's with Wordpress (and this one is on blogger), so please bear with me as I learn the new system.
