Hi

Hello Everyone,

I'm Shanta. I decided to do this blog because I needed an outlet, and I thought it would be a pretty cool and fun thing to do. Maybe somewhere out there I will find a kindred spirit or two. As the url indicates, I am a daughter, a wife, a mother, and a sister; and some days it is really hard being me. Don't get me wrong I have a great life, but sometimes it gets hectic.
I enjoy being able to stay home with my kids. It really affords me the opportunity to get to do a lot of the things I enjoy and share my passions with my girls. Writing, cooking, and crafting are my favorite activities and I try to get the girls to participate in most of those things with me, (imagine trying to teach a four year old to knit), its pretty funny, and fun. We also cook together a lot of the time, and not just breakfast on weekends.
I think its important to include your kids in the things that are important to you while they are young, so hopefully when they grow up they will include you in the things that are important to them. Starting to build the bridge now, means there won't be such a huge gap in the future. Enough waxing sentimental.
As I continued to think about what I wanted this blog to be, I came to realize that I wanted it to be content rich. Useful to those who read it, as well as a good laugh, and sometimes the reminder, not to take oneself so seriously. My desire is that you get a great deal of helpful information to take you through your day, in addition to some thoughts to grow on, and also a lot of creative ideas that you can share with your family to make your home life a little more fun.
Check back soon for a new post, until then enjoy life.
