We Pre-Empt This Anniversary Week Celebration . . .

I will finish my anniversary posts tomorrow, because today, I have an announcement.

For the first time in almost six years of blogging, I am guest posting.
That's right. Sarah from Clover Lane has been hosting a series titled, "Coming Home: The Gift of Every Day," mothers sharing the joys of being home with their kids. I have read Sarah's blog for years. We live parallel lives in many ways, and I've always enjoyed reading her perspectives on mothering--they speak to my heart.

I was so flattered to participate. You can read my post here.


  1. I read your guest post and was so glad that I did. It was perfect in so many ways and was so necessary for me to read at that moment. Thank you for your words and thoughts, they meant more in that moment that you'll ever know :)

  2. Great post! Even though I want my kids to grow up to be responsible adults, it doesn't make it any easier when they actually do that.

    Wishing I could go back to when they were little.

  3. Your guest post was beautiful and exactly what I needed to read right now. I have been following your blog for several months now and love the insight and realness your bring to the blogging and mothering world. Thank you for your efforts in maintaining this!

  4. Loved your post, Jen. It was top notch, filled with wisdom and truth.


  5. loved loved loved your post and it led me here. I never could have imagined how much I would love being at home or how hard it would be. Our 6th baby comes in over a month and there are so many things to do and I keep worrying but I know it will be fine just like it has been before.
    Your post really touched my heart. thank youxxx
