Blog Party MommyFest

I just became aware of MommyFest, which is a blog party. I'd love to join. Sorry I've been so out of blogging this week. I'm a little behind on a few things I've been wanting to write about. I've been not only fighting off a bug of some sort, but also just completely stressed out left and right with financial worry. I don't want to get into that.... Let's just say I haven't been feeling up to it lately. Maybe this will kick my butt back into the mood? :)

Well, first of all, nice to meet all of the ladies who visit my site! My name is Sarah. I'm a 24 year old mother to my daughter, Anna who is about 18 months old. I've been married for 4 years (four years next month!) to my hubby Paul. Nice to meet you all!

To say a little something about myself, I am a Christian. I love reading, writing, 'rithmatic.... just kidding. Nah, I do like math. But besides that, my daughter is the center of my world. I love her like nothing else. I just love her so much! I am totally blessed by the God of Heaven who has given me such a wonderful little blessing such as my daughter! Thank you Jesus!

What else??? Hmmm Oh I really like the show Bones, if that helps. I love to read Jane Austen. I love her writing style, but honestly I haven't read anything since before my daughter was born. When I read a book, I read nonstop until it's done. I just don't have time for that any more lol! I love photography! Oh I love taking photos of my daughter... just one thing, I could really use a great digital camera. I use the photo feature on my JVC camcorder, so it takes pretty poor photographs, being a video cam and all. Great video pictures, though! Another thing is that I would love to adopt some day. I think God gave me the heart of a mother for some specific reason. I've always wanted to be a mother. I've always loved children. And since Anna was born, I mother her like there's no tomorrow. I've always wondered what God wants me to do on this earth and I'm beginning to believe he wants me to be a mom. That's it, but that's not a simple or a lowly thing. That's a huge responsibility and privilege. I can't wait to have more children. We can't financially right now, but some day soon!!!

Anyhow, thank you for visiting my blog, everyone... party guests and otherwise. Thank you! And may God bless your day! Oh a photo, you say? You'd like a photo? Well, here you go:

One photo is of my husband and my daughter. The other is of me and my daughter. Photos taken this weekend at a family member's wedding. :) That's the first dress I've bought and worn since my wedding four years ago! I'd love to wear more dresses. I feel so feminine in them!

Just dropping in to say hi from Mommyfest.
I too love Bones and Jane Austen (and share your reading style; needless to say I haven't completed a book since my daughter was born!). You have a cute blog.

Hi, thanks for visiting me and enjoying the artwork. Your blog is lovely. A Tip for when you go shopping for that digital camera, my pro-photograper friends say Cannon is the way to go (Nikon if it is a film camera). Have a wonderful Day in the Lord!

I love photography and Jane Austen and being a mommy too. Oh, and I absolutely love your b + white dress - so classy!

Jean at Penny Lane said...

Hi-- Thanks for stopping by Penny Lane.
PBS redid all the Jane Austen books and they were just on -- the first run. So watch your PBS listings to see when they will play again (visit PBS and check them out). They did a fabulous job and I loved them all so much.
You can also check your local library or video rental store for them too (they came out in the fall of '07 in the UK first)!

Happy Partying! <3

Hi there. I'm from Mommyfest and still trying to visit all the blogs and find new ones to subscribe to. Your daughter is a doll and I'd love to know where you got the polka dot dress you're wearing in the photo. So cute!
