I'm Erin Jo. I'm thinking, writing, dreaming, mothering, loving, living, praising, BLESSED to be Fiona to my Shrek and Mommy to my four amazing kiddos.

Shrek is "like an onion with many layers" but has a heart of gold. He's my husband and my friend, and we just get better all the time.

Lily is my first baby and only girl. She's smart, funny, tall and kind. Keeping up with this girl is a challenge and a joy. She's terrific!

Max is one part ogre, two parts lover and all boy! Our little man has a temper but gives the best hugs of anyone I know!

Colby is as ornery as he looks. He flirts shamelessly, even with strangers. He's all mouth and curls and the loudest by far.

Luke is the baby of the family, but holds his own. He's happy and adorable. And he's a terrible sleeper. =)

Progress Report

New 'do...

Ah, let’s see. My weekend started about five hours ago, and I am so glad. I have been a busy woman, and it’s time to dial back, or at least time for the business to be family-related.

I want to be the kind of mom who cuts her own kids’ hair. Oh, well, look at this. I am.

Everyday, I’m something more. I am getting to be an older dog, but I learn new tricks. It’s not necessary for me to obey the box I live in. I can and will step out. I won’t always know the way, but I can follow the urge to find it. I can imagine my life staying the same, but I can also imagine a whole new path, once that leads to success and financial freedom and a different way of life.

My point here is that we can flex our wings at any time. We can change the direction we’re going, mid-journey. We can change our dreams, our expectations, our perceptions of what does and doesn’t matter.

I’m trying to do that. I’m quietly recalibrating, always in development, always with more peace. The blessings of this life aren’t lost on me. I’ve got my eyes wide open, and I like what I see.

    Spread you wings and fly. The world is waiting and of course it begins right in your own home. Love you
