Hello and thank you for stopping by our site!


I love children, family, organizing, chocolate and Pinterest! I hate my picture taken and multiple vegetables. I need to get in better shape, but dislike working out. I have been married for over 10 years, he’s stuck with me. I like to bake, but I don’t because I don’t need to eat it and I will. I would like to learn photography, Spanish (other than what I learned in one semester in high school), and sign language. Having more time to make my own baby food, scrapbooking, reading books, start projects and actually finish them in a timely manner are things I dream about. I was adopted and met my birth family when I was 26. I live in the country, work full-time, have a family with a dog and a cat, and this is my chaos.

My name is Lynae. After failed fertility treatments and signing up with an adoption agency for over 2 years my husband and I were matched with a mother that was having a boy. Four months later we took home a beautiful baby boy who I’ll call Q! We have been very blessed with the most amazing gift!! We have loved every minute!

During the years of waiting we did a lot of planning. We decided we needed to raise our child to be a good person which I’m guessing every parent dreams of. We want him to learn manners, respect others, have compassion, appreciate what he has, and help others. And even though these are ideals we are hoping our child will someday possess, that he’ll be the kind and generous person we are hoping he becomes does NOT mean it will happen the way we have “planned”. We realize he will be the person HE decides but all we can do is try our best to set a good example. We want to show him that to make the world a better place it starts with us and we can make a difference if we only try.

I am sharing our experiences, ideas, inspirations, accomplishments, and even our flops and fiascos in our journey to make this little part of the world a better place. I plan to share ideas on decluttering our lives, getting healthier, community service, random acts of kindness, family fun, and money-saving tips. Our plan is to grow to be better people.

So here is our adventure. Enjoy!
