Hey there! My name is Bonnie.

I'm a big believer that a blog should be like a living room and I hope you always feel like you're visiting my home when you pop in to read. We'll chat about movies, kids, books, faith, celebrations, school, losing weight, sleep, a lack of sleep, and recipes. In short, we'll talk about life.  Some of our conversations will be light - almost fluff - and some will be really personal and sincere.

Here's a bit about me: My husband and I just celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary. We had six kids in seven years; our oldest is now eight and attends parochial school. Additionally we have one climbing on everything, one twirling in dresses, one in kindergarten, one in first grade, and one super cute baby. Our first baby was lost due to miscarriage and I spent the first four years of parenthood suffering from postpartum depression. I live in small town Illinois and I'm in my mid thirties.

I'm a writer, bakerspeaker, and homemaker. I love British television shows, music, baking, decorating, and being Catholic. I also like reading, wearing red lipstick, and moms' groups. You can read more random stuff about me here, here, and here.

I love Instagram and Facebook and I'm pretty good at connecting with people there.

In the end, what I really want to say is thanks for stopping by and I hope you feel very welcome here. Feel free to introduce yourself, look around a bit, and enjoy or roll your eyes at my taste in music. If you want to get in touch here's how.
