What's the Ultimate Blog Party? It's a huge link up party that allows bloggers to share their blog, and readers a chance to discover more great blogs! And all you have to do to join in the fun is introduce yourself! For some of you, this might be old news, for other newer readers, you may just learn something new.
My name is Randi and I am horrible at writing introductions...seriously! I am a 26 year old Marine Wife and mom of two. I married my prince charming, Matt, at age 19 after meeting him online through his sister while he was deployed to Iraq. We have been living our happily ever after since, surviving everything the military and life has thrown at us. My husband is my complete opposite, but we complement each other well and somehow manage to make it all work. You don't see MANY pictures of him around here because...well frankly because he's too stubborn! But I promise he does exist!
My son Shaun is the sweetest, funniest, SMARTEST kid I know. He was diagnosed with autism at age two and has made tremendous progress over the last 4.5 years. He astounds me! He loves video games and computers, and did I mention he was awesome?
My daughter Finley is 7.5 months old and already has us wrapped around her itty bitty finger. Isn't she beautiful? She's the happiest baby I've ever seen and loves baby dolls (particularly her Disney Princess dolls) and the music from Frozen.
Here at A Modern Day Family I write about all things that make up our life. I write about our life in the military. I write about raising a child with Autism. I write about natural parenting- breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing. I share the occasional recipe or DIY (simple easy ones, as I'm not the most crafty!). I write about our day to day lives. I write about our mission to live a more green life- green cleaning, natural beauty solutions, and will even soon start sharing about my adventure in starting a garden. It is truly an eclectic mix, as is my little family. I also share family friendly product reviews- from natural baby products like cloth diapers to fashion and home decor and everything in between, there is a little something for everyone! I hope you will all stick around and enjoy everything A Modern Day Fairy Tale has to offer!
