My name is Lori. I'm a wife to a hard working husband and a mother to a 4 1/2 year old spitfire little girl who thinks she is at least 14. We live in the Boston area and spend our days doing everything we can to make it to the next day. Let me explain...
Life can be chaotic! I am reminded of this daily. The hours of each day fly by. I wake up in the morning, get through the daily routine, and before I know it, the sun is setting. I've been trying to remind myself to not get so caught up in the chaos or worrying about yesterday or tomorrow, but treasuring each minute as it comes along. I've been trying to remind myself regularly to enjoy each moment; to take time for today.
There are a few things I focus on to help bring more order to our family. They take a little bit of time and effort but have been totally worth it. For the most part, these are the things I blog about... fun things to do, yummy things to eat, and living frugally. This blog began as a way for me to keep myself organized. I wanted to get all of the things I loved under one roof so that I could access them easily! I quickly realized that not only could I catalog these things for myself, but I could offer them to you too!
So within the pages of my blog you'll find our favorite things to eat, our favorite things to do, our favorite places to go, our favorite brands, and our favorite ways to save money. Basically, if it's something we love, and I've gotten myself organized enough to write it down, it's here!
Let me admit to one more thing before I let you get to exploring. I'm primarily a stay at home mommy. Any other stay at home mommies and daddies know that being in the presence of children only, all day, can be a little bit lonely! I really love love love to interact with my readers, so let's chat! Let me know in the comments of my posts if you've tried something, loved it, hated it, or have another idea! Come visit me on my social media channels (the links are all in the upper right hand corner). I know I sound desperate, and I'm truly not, (or maybe I am?!), I just want this to be a two way conversation! If you need to contact me privately, feel free to message me through my social media channels or by email at taketimefortoday @ gmail . com.
Thanks for visiting!
