Balancing it all!

Candace Cameron Bure (Yep, the beloved big sister from Full House.) has a new book out entitled "Balancing it all." Candace does many things, and I look forward to reading her book. She is also hosting a giveaway over on pinterest.  Mind voting for me to win? Click onthat link then "like" my photo (The heart next to "pin" button) TTHANK-YOU SOOO MUCH!

So what do I balance?

I have been married ten years to my husband Brandon, we have four children.
Jackson-10,Clara-9, Elliott-7, and Riley-6.
And we have two dogs, yorkies named Ricky and Lucy.
We home school, and attend a home school co-op.
Our son Elliott has Systemic Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, and that means we are on the go to therapy and doctors appointments quite a bit.
I am a photographer, and write on this blog to keep friends and family up to date on our family and hopefully encourage other women that stop by too.
I am involved in a women's Bible Study at our church (working through Gideon by Priscilla Shirer right now! LOVE IT!)
I love cheering on the Kansas Jayhawks (Rock Chalk Jayhawk, GO KU!)
and I am working towards my new years resolution of living green and only buying our food locally.
I enjoy staying fit and healthy, by running and using natural remedies.
I am known for my roadside finds, that I clean up and paint, and thrifting is a passion. One of my favorite sayings is "I need a little bit of coffee, and a whole lot of Jesus."

So how do I balance the husband, and children, homeschooling, cleaning, cooking, shopping, doctors, hospitals, tests, therapy, co-op, Bible study, dogs, reaching out to others, keeping in touch with friends, and making time for myself?

With a whole lot of Jesus, and a little bit of coffee.
