Inspiring Family

Have you ever been captivated by a blog? One where you just keep reading through pages and pages and pages? Well, that is what happened to me the other night when I visited this blog.

I almost feel like I know her and her adorable family. She is a mother of 6 kids with 1 on the way. That alone is amazing to me, but even more amazing is that she homeschools all of the kids. She is an awesome Christian woman as is her family and they totally have their priorities in order! We could all learn something from her...I know I could! Oh, did I mention that she is a photographer too? Oh, well she is very talented as you can see from these photos.

Aren't they an adorable couple?! She is GORGEOUS & SKINNY after having 6 kids....I'm a bit jealous! She was 19, he was 29 when they married and their first kiss was on their wedding day! Such a romantic love story!
Alyssa & Robert

Their six super cute kiddos!


She is also a great decorator on a very limited budget. I think that is the true test of a great decorator! I mean, anyone can decorate if you have plenty of money. It's challenging when you don't have the funds. Take a look at their kitchen before she did her Magic.






And here is what a little paint can do to make it more inviting......

Here is the dining table they made




Huge cork board (Love the frames on the cork board...adds dimension)

Look how pretty she made the baby bed

This is their daughter's precious room



Stop by her blog to see more of her life, kids, photography and decorating.
Let me know if you get captivated like I did!

God Bless!
