SITS DAY!!!

Wow, it's my SITS day. I found out for sure yesterday and haven't had much time to tidy up the place but come on in grab a cup of coffee and a throw because it's chilly around here. Ignore the toys on the floor my son Alex will pick those up in a bit because he is the organized one in the family, lately. (Seriously, it is a bit scary.) If you need some entertainment my son Eli will gladly sing a song to you unless he is feeling shy in that case he will gladly tell you "I being shy". Let me show you around.

Why do we all blog? Well, my reason was to keep track of what life looks like right now. I came up for air after the whirlwind, that was infancy with twin boys, when they were about 10 months old and this blog was born. I pretty much stick to the topic of my boys and family life as a SAHM. If those type of blogs bore you you're not gonna love me. Sorry. :)

A re-occurring theme in my writing tends to be simplicity. I am not sure if it is because the boys were preemies and very sick or because becoming a parent just does that to you but I am constantly reminded of all the simple things in my life that I am thankful for. God has blessed me, my husband, Jared, and our boys immensely. I don't ever want to lose sight of the grace that he has poured out on our lives.

What the HECK is SITS? Well, I will try to explain but I must admit I have a hard time explaining it to non-Sitstas. Basically it is a place where we support other blogs and find new ones to add to our unhealthy addiction that is: Blog Reading. :) We spread around lots of blog love by commenting on each other's posts. If you are still like "huh?" then click on the cute button on the top of this post and let them explain it.

So now that I have written a novel.....here are my posts that you should click on! If you can relate and enjoy the posts then become a follower and OF COURSE leave a comment and say Hi! I plan to come and visit all of you also.

Mom Guilt~ How I, a mom to preemies, got past the guilt.

Our Chair~ What is that special place in your home?

Thanksgiving Thursday~ I do have the occasional rant but try to find the silver lining in the midst of it! :)

Simply Saturday~ I am just going to link you to all of these. I am actually trying to get a McLinky set up and have more than 1 person join me(although I am thankful for those who did participate). Come on back Saturday and play along. We ALL have simple pleasures in life that we are thankful for. Right now I am thankful for this big cup of coffee sitting next to me and the fact that my sons are watching a little "Mary Poppins".

Kool Aid said...

congrats on your day!

Love the music you have playing. Normally I'm not a big fan of music on blogs, because I tend to be listening to something myself and it clashes but today I happened to be between music and heard yours.

It's one of my absolute FAVORITE hymns and so beautifully played! I'd love to know where you found it.

I'm also a mom to a preemie, so I'm "with ya!"

Have a great day!!
