Hi, my name is Jennifer Saarinen. And that's a picture of me and my daughter Maija about 5 years ago. I know it's old but it's my favorite picture EVER! I'm a stay at home mom. My girls are 4 and 9. Both my daughters were born by C-section, much to my dismay. I really tried to avoid it but there is only so much you can do. The safety of my babies were most important. I do feel like I have something missing in me because I was unable to deliver them naturally.
But I'm getting over it:)
I've never been one to have much energy and have suffered from depression and anxiety for as long as I can remember. I've been off medication for a number of years now. Only because I've been able to stay at home with the kids rather than have to deal with working outside the home.
Since my husband is the only one with a income I've tried several things that I can do from home to make a little cash to help out with expenses. I've become an agent for Oliver's Labels and recently signed up with Watkin's Naturals. I also babysit for a friend 3 days a week and now I'm trying my hand at blogging. All this while homeschooling the girls. It can all be very overwhelming and sometimes I don't think I can handle things. But there are lots of good days too and I can't imagine life any different.
I hope to share on this blog the ups and downs of my life. Stories of homeschooling and family life, recipe, crafts and such. Plus I hope to start reviewing products myself and bring my fans some great giveaways.
So I hope you come by and check it out every once and a while and share your comments and thoughts with me too:)
