Getting Started

The only thing I have ever wanted to be was a Wife and a Mother.  I am blessed to say "I am both"  I am married to my High School Sweetheart, and have three wonderful and happy children.  I am blessed.  

For whatever reason, I decided today to start a blog site.  Lord only knows why, I am a terrible writer, but that will hopefully not be a terrible obstacle.  I plan on using photos and brief descriptions mostly to get across my ideas. 

 I will be perfectly honest, I am addicted to Facebook.  I never realized how much I enjoy sharing things with people.  (Maybe that is why I enjoyed homeschooling my children for six wonderful years.)  On Facebook, I always run out of space, and then have to leave a comment on my own post.  What better way to remedy the problem, than my very own blog site? 

I have all sorts of wonderful ideas about things that I would like to share, but  I often sabotage a project, by biting off more  than I can chew.  That being said, I think at first I will limit myself to only  5.......make that 10 topics.  I will start with Home keeping, Home decorating, Thrift Store Finds, Child Rearing, Recipes, My Favorite Things, Marriage, Family and Faith.  See?? That's only NINE topics.  I have plenty of room to expand! :)

BTW, Thanks Douglas for coming up with the name "Raising Home"  I think it is perfect!


  1. I agree with Douglas--PERFECT NAME for a home-grown blog. Is my name going to show on this? Anyway, 'tis me, Aileen! I shall be partaking in your blog......Can't wait.

  2. Its me, Nicki! Not that I had anything to do with it, but I'm so proud of the wonderful woman you turned out to be! The way you've raised your family is inspiring and I look forward to reading your blog often!

    Love you!!

  4. I can't wait to see whats to come! I think this is wonderful idea and I must agree witn Nicki, she hit the nail right on the head!

  5. Thanks ladies for all the love and support! This is really fun. :) I have a bunch of stuff I want to add before I start new and fun projects, so at least I should stay pretty busy while I am recovering. What do you think of the new site design?
