Welcome to the Yahres family blog! Jean (mom) is the main blogger on this site with a few added comments and posts from Jim (dad). Ryan, Owen, and Emma are the main subjects of our blog and provide all the silly content, photo shoots and the sometimes desperate calls for advise on parenting! The boys are in elementary school and Emma attends a moms morning out program. Recently we added a new kitten to our family, Peppa. We have come to refer to her as Peppa T with the ‘T’ standing for trouble. She lets the kids carry her around, play dress up with her, and will do just about anything for a treat. Her daily goal is to determine the highest point of the house in which she can climb to on that given day.
What you can expect to enjoy if you choose to follow our blog, is the documenting of the daily life of two boys and a toddler girl in a busy, crazy and hectic Atlanta household. We will throw in some design projects, recipes, giveaways, product reviews, craft projects, and organizational tips as well.
What you’ll learn about me is that I recently left the full time corporate/association world as an event and meeting planner to become a stay at home mom to our three kiddos. Besides room mom duties, car pool, volunteering, and a million other “mom” things, I also founded my own business, My Hello Designs in 2009.
I started blogging in 2008 when Owen (our second son) was less than 2 months old. It started as a way for me to document our life and share photos of the boys with our family and friends that lived away from us. I grew up in Northern Wisconsin and have lived in Minneapolis, MN and Denver, Co before relocating to Atlanta, GA after marrying Jim in 2005. Jim grew up outside of Philadelphia, PA and has lived in several other locations before he ended up in Denver, CO where we met. Our love story is a unique one and still 10+ years after we met I still hear people say “Tell them the story of how you met! I love this story!” To be honest, I love it too and do not mind telling it over and over again. Go ahead and read it for yourself though. Delta: A Dog or an Airline?
So while we may seem like your typical suburban family living just outside of Atlanta in a 300 home subdivision with a fenced in backyard, two boys, a baby girl, and a kitten, we are running in ten different directions every day of the week. We have a ton of fun along the way and we’re here to document as much of it as we can. We love to take advantage of what Atlanta has to offer and actively attend the local events and attractions.
I hope you will come back often and leave comments.
