I have been following your blog and you, on instagram, for some time now and it kinda just felt weird not introducing myself! So, hello! I just want to thank you for everything you do in the social media world! Your family is BEAUTIFUL, and your blog is awesome, and I so appreciate your insights, posts, and pictures on motherhood, family life, and faith. It has been a real life saver for me! My name is Jessica and I am married with two little boys, 2 and a half, and 9 months. I am 28 years old and will be 29 in February.” “…I want to thank you for everything you put out there. It is sometimes very hard to find a community to belong to, especially one with a similar background and value system, but I have to say how nice it has been to feel connected to you in a way. So thank you so much! I appreciate you and everything that you do to celebrate motherhood! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!”

Hi Natalie, I recently found you on instagram and just visited your page today. I just wanted to tell you thank you! Thank you for the encouraging words!! I’m seriously bawling in the car line at my son’s preschool. lol Just the reminder that I’m not on this crazy roller coaster ride we call motherhood by myself and the reminder of God’s grace and love for us…no matter how big or small..it’s really what I needed to hear today. Thank you for the encouragement! You have a beautiful family..thank you for sharing your life with us! Hope you have a great day!
– VanessaHi Natalie! I am a fairly new reader of your blog (within the last 6ish months), and I just have to share with you that your posts, past and present, have helped me tremendously as a (stay/work at home) mama. I have two girls and a third baby on the way (we find out Friday what it is)! We moved away from most of our family and all of our friends and live in a little town where we are still getting acquainted, so I have been pretty lonely. Your blog helps me feel like I’m not all alone out here in the crazy world of motherhood. You are such an inspiration to me and I just felt I had to share that with you! Thank you for all that you share with the world. Know that you are always reaching someone in such an amazing, positive way.

Today Ben was able to get out of work early! So to celebrate, we went strawberry picking. The kids loved it! We’ve been talking about doing it all month and finally made it happen. We spent the car ride home thinking of everything we could make with the strawberries… but I’m pretty sure we are […]

I’m excited to be teaming up with Simply Juice Drinks for a fun giveaway! Their e-mail couldn’t have come at a better time. 8 weeks pregnant and their new juice drink line is exactly what I’m craving! We always have their orange juice in our fridge, but I took a look at the new drinks they […]
I’ve shared this banana bread recipe in the past. But the photos didn’t do it justice. It’s SO DELICIOUS. My mom gave me this recipe and it’s one you need to have in your recipe box (or pinned to your Pinterest recipe board!!) My kids love it.. I love it.. and I’m always so glad I made […]

In our new house we have a room designated for toys. An official play room! and It really bugs me that the play kitchen area doesn’t have a fridge and more countertop space… ;) JK.
