Introducing 13 Plum Knitted Creation, and me!

Unfortunately, this is not the first blog I have started. It is, however, going to be the only one I truly attempt to write on consistently, and more than once! Let me introduce myself! I am a SAHM, and love every minute of it! I have two beautiful children, ages 7 and 15 months. I have been married to a wonderful man for 4.5 years. He is truly my best friend. I own a daycare in my home, and care for two other children each day. Between 7 and 5 each day, I care for 3 children, all under the age of 2.5! There is never a dull moment! In addition to all that, I knit. I knit to the point that it could consider it an obsession. Because I had so much STUFF laying around, I decided to start selling the things I had created. Its been such a blessing! Currently, I have my things in a local store. I also hope to start going to craft shows. My maternal grandmother did this same thing when she was alive, and she is one of my heros. She was one of my best friends, and biggest cheerleaders. I loved her very much!
I consider myself to be a new type of feminist. Not a bra-burning, equal rights feminist, but one who embraces and truly enjoys serving her family. One who considers her husband the head of the household. One who provides for her family frugally. I guess you could say my goal is to be the stereotypical 1950's housewife. I truly think my husband respects me more now, as a SAHM than he did when I was working full time as an insurance rep.
I am a Christian. I go to First Presbyterian Church currently, although I have never been one to associate myself with denominations. I hate that. Christ calls us to be followers of HIM, not a church. I have a relationship with my Lord, and try to live my life in a manner that would please Him. If you do not believe the same way as me, that is fine! I am not judgemental in anyway. I will accept anyone, regardless of beliefs, and only ask you do the same of me. These days it seems its ok to be accepting of any belief system, religion or lifestyle, except Christianity.
Please follow along with me! I can't guarantee every post will be riveting. Infact, some days it may just be me complaining about how many dirty diapers I change in a day. Of course, there will be days when it might be really neat! At any rate, please feel free to leave comments! I look forward to getting to know people! Thanks for reading!
