The Party Is Here!!!!

The party is EVERYWHERE!! 5 Mintues For Mom is having their annual Ultimate Blog Party for all Mom Bloggers! This is my first year participating and I'm so excited to meet new mom bloggers and join the 5 Minutes For Mom Family....an amazing group of women I'm thrilled to have found!Let me tell you a little about myself...My name is Tara and I live in the humid Southeast. Miss the west coast weather where I grew up, but learning to enjoy life here. I'm a VERY happily married wife to my amazing husband Shawn. We've been married for 14 years, but met each other in 4th grade. We have 5 beautiful children, 14, 12, 5 and 1 year old twins. I could quit there because that is what makes me live and breathe everyday, but there are few other things about me that I can share....I'm a sports fanatic...my kids play every sport, I play, husband plays...we love sports! I love Friday nights with my family, chocolate and Diet Coke...who doesn't? I love photography, writing, and of course my home-based business! I'm so fortunate and blessed to be able to work from home and be a part of an amazing company, Cherish Bound. Cherish Bound is my "other love" next to my family and church. I'm one of 5 nationwide leaders for them and love teaching families how to connect, re-connect, bond and live through the power of story. I love helping people preserve their stories, photos and memorabilia...it's life-changing to watch family's change and connect. I'm able to help families find ways to come back to the dinner table, back to the basics and find each other again. If you like what you see I'm on the prize page #48!My blog was created with the intent of sharing my family's stories and traditions...just hoping that at least one family will find a tradition to start or a story to share. Life is about family. That is why we're here and I just want to help families find a way to stick together and stick it out. Enjoy my blog....by the way, my blog is getting a make-over as we "type" from Jen at The Trendy Mommy Spot...should be updated by next week at the end of the party.... (03/12/08) it's done and updated...hope you like it!!!

Thanks for coming to my party. I'm with you on the importance of understanding where we come from.

I take for granted my family's interest in geneology, the family reunions, the respect for our history. But, I've been watching the African American plight to discover who their own people were, which tribe they came from - etc. The pain they have not knowing is sad.

I am more grateful and I deliberatly pass that onto my kids. I think you'd like a story I wrote about passing our maternal leneage on to our daughters. I think we often overlook our feminine history: http://traceesioux.blogspot.com/2007/06/maternal-lineage.html

Wow! You keep busy with 5 kids and a WAH career! :)
Thanks for having me & happy partying!

Loved visiting your blog.

Great posts!

Party on over to my blog for a visit!

Grace said...

I enjoyed reading your blog. I too am about to become and ex-scrapbooker. I just don't have the time for it. I love photography, but hardly have time for that either. I am hoping to win your prize, as it sounds like it would be easier to keep up than the scrapbooking is. Is this true?

I am looking forward to your blog makeover! Stop by my blog so I can refer back to you regularly!
