Welcome! At Shimmering Twig you will discover simple recipes, real-life stories, teaching tools, creativity, and parenting by trial and error. I have  a personality that indulges in a little of this and a lot of that, so there is never a dull moment!

With two little ladies to chase around, a husband who is an avid outdoors man, a full time career, and recently completing a post-Graduate certification program, life is always on the up and up. We are feeling our way through this crazy story with the support of wonderful parents, family-friends, and a close knit groups of friends who are also raising a slew of little girls (seriously, there must be something in the water around here!) that makes life always exciting and constantly reminding me how fortunate I have been.

Please join me by subscribing to my blog and following this little life journey as I share recipes, craft projects, party planning tips, and some of my absolute favorite shops. I welcome feed back and stories of your lives as well!
