I’m Jamie, the youngest of five, mother to four, and wife to one (although some aspects of the idea of a sister wife are appealing…I wonder if they do laundry?). Growing up, I was a quiet introvert who much preferred reading to running around outside or going places with lots of people. Not much has changed…oh wait four kids later and I don’t have time to sit still much less concentrate on a whole book (I will get my book club book read sometime in 2016, I swear).

I can be found, running around my house after a crazy two year old, snuggling a sleepy infant, or feeding two (always) hungry growing girls. In the midst of all that, I have developed a new love for simplicity, whether it comes to decorating the house or dressing myself and the kids. I used to love lots of loud hues but now, I make do with a pop of color and just hope no one wipes their nose on my shirt.
