Ultimate Blog Party

Ultimate Blog Party 2010
If you are visiting from the exciting Ultimate Blog Party, let me WELCOME you!  I hope you enjoy a quick visit here at New Nostalgia.  I would love for you to continue with me, as I try to do life simply and well, with a mission to get back to the basics. (for my regular readers, warm {hugs} to you, too!)
{me and my DH}
Here are a few posts that will give you a peek into my world:
Recipes-I try hard to use ingredients that have been around awhile, before processed “food” came about.  Simple and healthful is my goal.
Beauty-I am a hairstylist turned full time homemaker, so the creative in me loves to find beauty in everything.  I like to explore beauty, without spending a fortune doing it.
Family-oh, to have this one figured out.  I love being a mom.  I do my best, but have much to learn!  My prayer is that I will never stop growing as I explore this thing called motherhood.  I post as I go, sharing the things I discover that help me in this amazing job called “mom.”
{Fall Break Fun} (could be spring break, too:))
Crafts-again, I love to create, and so do my 3 girls (age 10, 9 & 6). Here are some of the things we have done together.
Homemaking-a job I take very seriously.  We have such power as moms to create an environment to (as my joy post said) hurt or heal.  I desire home to be a place where my family can come and be fully who they are, and to heal from what life brings. This, to me, makes home environment so important!
Spirituality-it is THE thread that holds all of who I am together, it affects all that I do, because He is.
Thanks again for visiting and reading!  
Please come back,  and know that you are invited to participate in my
“Anti-Procrastination Tuesdays” Link Party. It is a place where you and I can get things done together!
 I would love to have you link up or leave a comment!

    Stopping by from UBP. I will definitely be back to check out your whole wheat brownies. I recently posted on whole wheat peanut butter cookies. I think the whole wheat helps relieve some of the guilt of the other stuff(at least for us, lol).
