First, a little about me. I'm Angie, mom to 5 Vinez Monkeys.... and if you're wondering, it's actually pronounced "Vinnie." But, most people get that wrong, so I answer to just about anything. (Well, usually. As long as it's nice!)
My husband and I will celebrate our 7th anniversary this September. It's been a crazy 7 years, but I wouldn't change a second!
I homeschool, run a photography business, an online web, graphic, and design service business, and also run BuyByMom - a fantastic website to find wonderful businesses and support WAHMs.
I love to be busy (obviously), but nothing is more important to me than my relationship with Christ, my family, and my church.
My kids are Ashley (11), Zander (5), Jace (4), Lucy (2), and Parker (5 months). They light up my life, and are such a joy to me.... even if they can drive me batty! Here's a picture of them:
Blogging is a passion for me. I blog from every day topics like parenting issues, life with a large family, and sometimes just rambling thoughts. I also participate in Wordless Wednesday and offer Photography Tips & Tricks on Tuesdays. I also have 2 fantastic giveaways going on right now: the first is for a pearl bracelet (retail value, $65) and the second is for a set of 3 Chicken Soup Books - geared toward kids in middle school, high school, and getting ready for college.
Also, over on Buy By Mom, I've got a giveaway going on with a chance to win a $75 gift certificate to Angela Vinez Designs . Click here to enter - but hurry, that contest ends on Tuesday the 24th.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! I look forward to getting to know you.
