It’s my SITS day!!

Today is my SITS day!

For Β those of you who don’t know, is an amazing community of over 40,000 women bloggers. Every day they feature a blogger and today is my day! So a warm welcome to anyone new visiting today. I hope you will stop by often! And a warm welcome too for all those regulars that support me with their comments and THEIR amazing blogs!

I have been so blessed since I started blogging and have found such incredible support and deepened so many relationships! There are so many reasons why I blog, and you can read about them here.

I blog mainly about the ins and outs of our journey as a blended family. I love to talk about motherhood and stepmotherhood, both roles that I love and am honoured to fill. But both roles are challenging, maddening, and a load of fun. I have two boys biologically (10 and 11), and three skids (stepkids) Β – two stepsons (7 and 14) and one stepdaughter (11), so we are never short on drama and adventure around here. My kids are sassy, funny, creative and smart and they make me laugh all the time. They make me cry too – I’m not ashamed to say I’ve cried many tears of exasperation and frustration. However, I do tend to share the rosier side of things – only because it helps me to SEE the rosier side of things.

I have been married for 5 years to an incredible man, who truly is the love of my life. It just took us the long, windy, back road way of finding each other. But we found each other, and this third force of ours is pretty darn precious.

I am also a career gal (work as a Speech Language Pathologist in private practice) and a travel nut. I love to travel and am either planning the next trip or on it! I also love a good book, a great beach (oops, that’s travel again, no?), some trash TV, financial stuff, sushi dates, traditions, a great quote, and an organized home (ok – that’s my ideal.) We are a family of faith and I love anything that feeds my spiritual soul.

So take a look around and I hope that we can become blogger pals!

  1. Hi Leah! The next time I feel overwhelmed, I’ll think of you and your blended family. If you can make things work while juggling five kids and a career, I should be able to manage two kids! So nice to meet you from SITS!

    • Sometimes I think having MORE kids is easier – they have each other to stay entertained. If they fight with one, they find another! When we just have the two, or the three at home, they tend to get BORED and trouble begins…. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Happy SITS Day!

    I’m so glad I found you. I started my own blog a few years ago to chronicle my journey as a single mom and now seem to be on a path that will follow in your footsteps, I have two children of my own and have been seriously dating a man with 3 step children (age range for all five 7-10). I’m going to be reading and taking notes! πŸ™‚

    • That is my exact path!!! It’s an awesome one – filled with different challenges than others may experience, but also different blessings and fun!! Will be following your journey too! Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Happy SITS Day! I hope it is amazing for you!

    Kids are amazing in so many ways. I think they teach us more than we will ever know about ourselves! πŸ™‚

  4. Happy SITS Day! I absolutely love all the pictures of your family! And with so many, I’m sure the adventure never stops. I hope you have a wonderful day!

  5. Happy SITS day! Great pictures of the family! It’s also nice to see other blended family mom blogs (there aren’t that many of us!) IN my opinion, it is a challenge and a blessing all in one!

  6. Woot woot! Happy SITSday!!! That’s great! I am looking forward to reading about your adventures! Especially travel, I too like to travel but since having kids we haven’t done it as much, mostly either big trips or staying home. Our weekend getaways aren’t as frequent as they used to be.

    • Things do tend to slow down when the kids come, but I have found we have just had to change our way of travel to accomodate the changes in our family! Lots of time to do it ALL – just not all right now:)

  7. Happy SITS day!!! What a lovely blog you have here, gorgeous photos and such a beautiful family! Blended families can be so loving, with the challenges and adventures along the way!

  8. Wow!! And I thought I had a large family – but that is awesome!! I’m so glad I decided to stumble on over here from the Dose Girls…you were on their comment list and your pic looked familiar. No, I’m not a stalker, just curious…but also a little weird, and demented, and..oh lookie here, I’m talking about myself and its your SITS day!! Happy Day!!

    Glad I stopped by, I plan on stopping by regularly.

    • I don’t know why I get that weird exclamation point on some blogs…weird, I promise, I’m not a virus – ask Lisa and Ashley – they’ll vouch for me, I hope. LOL

  9. Happy SITS Day! I just signed up with them today! From the looks of your blog, you look pretty busy and happy! What a bunch you have! Anyhoo, looking forward to getting to know you! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  10. Oops! I tried to leave a comment before but it bounced back so let me try again…if it is a double post, sorry!

    Happy SITS Day to you – you really have a fab blog here and I am enjoying reading all your posts, and about the third force. So inspiring to me!!
