Location Piedmont Region, NC, United States
Introduction I'm Joy, wife to Paul, stay-at-home mom to Elizabeth (13) and Finn (7), and stepmom to Paulie (14) and Philip (11). I blog to remember their childhood and to make sure I get plenty of pictures of it in the process. I recently cut the cord on working full-time to spend more time with my littles. We spend our days painting, drawing, reading, digging in dirt, walking in nature, stretching our imaginations, and trying to enhance learning and creativity at home in a natural way.
