Real Moments. Real Beauty. Real Life.

I'm Christine

     
Real moments.  Real beauty.  Real life.

That's how I try to live and view the world.  It means going to the bus stop every morning in my PJs.  It means letting the little ones help in the kitchen even though the mess they create will take an eternity to clean.  It means keeping the kids up past their bedtime on a warm spring night because that backyard family soccer game is just too much fun.  It means hiding in the closet with my chocolate because I just need a break for a few minutes.

I agree that the days are long but the years are short.  Yes, those days with little ones can be oh so long.  And very hard.  When you’re holding on by a thread and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.  But there is so much magic in these days.  And smiles.  And laughter.  Because suddenly it's gone in a blink.  And when it is, you want to remember that precious time.  The highs, the lows, and everything in between.  That's what shapes your family. That’s what defines your life.
