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. =)

Present Day

Ah, happy birthday to this little man! My Colby is four today. I cherish the day of his birth. It was my best birth experience. He arrived around 6:30 p.m. on a gorgeous spring day, much like the one we had today. I still remember our first moments, with the sun streaming through the windows […]

I Want to Linger

As you might have guessed, I have had a little bit of crisis here lately.

Keep Calm and Carry On… and On

A lot of my regular readers probably won’t be able to read this post. Here in Southeast Ohio, we all learned a new vocabulary word this weekend. Derecho.┬áSay it with me… “de-REY-cho!” It’s basically a strong, widespread wind storm with fast-moving thunderstorms mixed in. Kind of like a tornado, only straight. And kind of like […]

New Beginning

Tonight, I write. I’ve missed blogging the last couple of nights. I’ve been celebrating birthdays–mine and this blog’s–and the anniversary of my journal-writing. So I’m 34. I’ve been keeping a journal for 22 years and blogging for two. Pretty amazing. Actually, maybe pretty amazing that I’ve done anything else. Oh, but I have. My actual […]

Rock Me

Is it just me, or are there a lot of very sexy country songs out right now? Whatever it is, I dig it. And I know there are some country music haters out there. That’s ok. I hate some of your music too, but I don’t hate you. No, not at all! I’m going to […]
