Hello, I am Leslie. Wife to Josh. Mom to Alyssa 20, Maya 15, Caleb 11, and Kate 9. I sometimes feel like I have been a mom FOREVER! When I had just turned 18 years old, I became a mom for the first time. Only a few months prior, I had gotten married to my high school sweetheart, Josh. We have been through so much over the years, and somehow we have made it this far. Life hasn’t always been easy, and we have made plenty of mistakes along the way, but we are always learning and growing. About 11 years ago, we had our son Caleb, who was later diagnosed with Autism. It was out of this time that I really learned so much about parenting, compassion, and letting go of ideas about life that are no longer helpful.
Here, I write about food, family and life. Sometimes I will share tips on grocery shopping and meal planning. I will also share other more personal posts, printables, parenting tips, encouragement, and Autism resources. I hope you will enjoy it and if you do I hope you will share it, so I can encourage others!
It’s nice to meet you!
