- quick recipe of the week -


Hello everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you are facing this new week with a smile on your face...like I am trying to do!! (Ugh, Mondays are always so hard!)

Today I'd like to introduce you to an amazing gal! Meet Michelle, from The Momma Bird. I just recently stumbled across Michelle's blog and I've been loving getting to know her! Michelle is a former elementary teacher turned SAHM when the Air Force moved her fabulous husband & their little family to England, October 2010. She has 2 energetic boys - Cohen (3yrs) & Lucas (2yrs) - they keep her insanely busy! If that wasn't enough, they found out they were expecting another bundle October 2012! But get this...At their 22wk gender scan, they found out they weren't expecting 1 bundle, but 2 identical twin GIRLS! She's got her work cut out for her this fall. When Michelle's not busy being a mom or a wife she's usually spending time with her friends, blogging about life or designing blogs for people.
