Women Connecting '12

Becky at From Mrs. to Mama is having a great link up in hopes of connecting women together. I am excited to link up even though my blog is struggling a bit. I have found several other "mommy" blogs these past few months that I just adore reading.
Let me tell you just a little bit about me.  I am Valerie and I am a SAHM to 1 amazingly adorable 10 month old little boy and I have been married to my high school "crush" for 9 years. We live in Illinois in a great town with lots to keep us busy. We look forward to having more children and getting a bigger home someday.
My little family!
 This is my little space that I have intended to share updates about my son with family and friends. I will admit that its not everything I had hoped that it would be and I really hope to start blogging venting more in the near future. Life is very busy with a very active baby boy so I don't get to update as much as I want to and I probably spend way more of my very little free time reading other mommy blogs then tending to my own. I do however LOVE reading blogs and find it as a sort of escape for me. I get lost reading them (mostly during nap time)  and often find things I have in common with alot of them and they are also rather inspiring. As a first time mom I often wonder if I am doing the right things or if other people are going through the same things with there little ones. Since having my son I find it very difficult to balance day to day things. I used to be a very detail oriented and organized person that always got everything done. I never imagined that having just one child would do that to me. Anyway...
A little more about me...
I love to read but have not finished one book since my son was born.
Addicted to pinterest...could spend hours on it very easily if I had that kind of free time.
I love my life no matter how crazy and busy it can be.
I enjoy cooking and am always looking for tasty simple meals to make.
Christmas is my all time favorite time of the year.
I love shopping!
