HI! I’m Theresa. Welcome to Preserving Love, the blog where I share the ins and outs of my ordinary family living an ordinary life while recognizing what an extraordinary gift it all is.
Preserving Love was born out of a desire to share the simple joys of life. “Preserving” love by living it memorably.
Just living and loving and creating memories.
A little bit about me…
I am in no way a graceful, put-together, organized mom.
I’m not that mom that throws elaborate parties with every detail thought of for my kids.
I’m not that mom that dresses everyone in color coordinated outfits for Sunday mass….not even for holidays. We’re lucky if everyone has clean dress clothes and appropriate shoes for the occasion.
I’m not that mom that stays “in the know” about the newest trends.
I am, however, that mom that hauls her kids everywhere without even thinking twice.
I’m that mom that lives in sweatshirts and jeans with a messy pony and fantasizes about outfits and the time to put them together.
I’m that mom that opts out of dishes for a movie and snuggles with the kids on the couch.
I’m almost always mostly a mess in some way or another.
And I’ve given up on pretending and putting forth a face. What you see is what you get.
Most days – my life – it’s pretty grand …. In the simplest of ways. And I wouldn’t change it for anything. My life…..Our life…..on a little farm….with 5 kids….farm animals….crazy cold winters…..sweltering hot humid summers complete with more mosquitoes than stars in the sky.
In this space you will find honesty, simplicity, humor, maybe some heartache (sometimes life just happens like that), and always blessings.
