This is Me: Simone
My name is Simone and I am a mom of four, wife to one, and I blog about the joys and experience of living life as a large family.
It is our (continual) journey of faith. Of learning to raise independent, loved, well-behaved children. Keys we have discovered to a successful marriage. How we manage our finances. Products we love, and work for us, and most importantly; how we shop, save, and budget as a large family.
