Ultimate Blog Party – Meet Our Ordinary Family #UBP12

I can hardly believe I have been partying every year for the past 4 years with the girls over at 5 Minutes For Mom. Over the years I have met so many bloggers and made so many lasting friendships. Last year I found myself rambling so this year I hope to keep things a little more simple.

Hello, my name is Kristin. I have been blogging for 7 years. I have two daughters Kaila and Brooklin. Kaila is soft and sweet, she’s petite and kind hearted. She’s really smart and even more so creative. My Brooklin is just like me, she’s chaotic and hyper. She’s full of laughs and will always make you smile. She’s the annoying little sister but she loves the attention. We are also expecting baby #3 in June who will be named Mia.

I am not perfect but have learned to accept myself. I am constantly evolving and know the person that I want to be and am willing to change myself and evolve for that to happen. This blog is my little piece of the world. I never want my children to feel the way I did as a child so I write about them, a lot. This site has and always will be my journal for my children.

This blog is also a way for me to share some of my favorite products, as a perk I also get to do some pretty remarkable giveaways. I also have a passion for wholesome foods, and often share my love of food and photography here.

If you’d like to I have a Facebook fan page, and find me on Twitter also find me on YouTube. If you’d like to trade banners let me know in a comment, I’ll come and snag yours!

    Your children are adorable! I always ask my child “what is most important in life?”. “Friends and Family, Mom! Friends and Family!” (I wonder who instilled this in her little mind)
