From an overwhelmed stay-at-home mama, to a grateful freelance writer/yoga teacher/stay-at-home mama, the past eight years have been a real physical, emotional, intellectual and philosophical trip. I've shared many personal stories here at 24-7 Mommy and hope they'll remind you that you are not alone on this crazy parenting adventure. Please feel free to share your experiences...the good, the bad and the amazingly AWESOME!

I obsessed over finding a house of our own for some time. It's now been 7 months since we moved in and while there have been some challenges, I am always thrilled to walk through our front door and be "home."
Over Easter, our new house had the chance to show off a bit. My parents, sister, brother and sister-no-law came down from Canada for a visit. Our house got to hold 9 of us over several days of eating, drinking, playing and generally having a lovely time.
It was the first time I have been able to have my whole family together in my own home, and it felt so nice. I now frequently remind myself of my Dad's kind words: "You have arrived."
So thanks to my family and thanks to my house. I love you all.
