This is the story of my family. The place where I share the joy that brought me here. The joy that I thank God for on a daily basis. The joy that I find only because I know him. The place where I share only the positive moments that shine through the occasional drudgery and sludge of motherhood and especially military spouse pseudo-single motherhood. The place where I remember that even in the worst moments of endless diapers and crayons on the walls and vomit in my hands that joy brought me here. A & I have been married since December 2003, Monkey was born in 2006, Goose was born in 2008, and Clover was born in 2012.
