Hello! I'm 'Rie (ree). That was a pet name my aunt had for me when I was young. Short for Marie.
Welcome to my blog where I write about anything and everything. I try not to paint a perfect picture because we are so far from perfect.
I am a growing Christian, a wife of the greatest man in the world and a mother of five smart and handsome sons. (Is it okay to brag?) Like I said, We are very normal people with very normal problems that sometimes seem greater than normal.
This is where I come to develop my love of writing. I share things that happen in our family so I have a record. I also share recipes, life hacks, and my ideas and thoughts. Hence the "News and Views".
Let me know in the comments if there is a particular subject you would like to hear more about or wish to have addressed. I'll do my best but, ya know, I really don't have all the answers. I'm still a-learnin'.
I love any feedback. If you are an email subscriber, I haven't figured out a way to get a reply by email. You just have to open a new email to reply to me. t.rie.n.sons(at)gmail(dot)com
