The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.

Are you living out your dream(s) right now?


Growing up, I dreamed up becoming a pop star .(ha!) I guess you could say I’m living out the dream, in the eyes of my kids, when I belt out The Itsy Bitsy Spider!! (The Go Fish Guys version)

But in all seriousness I have to admit that I never dreamed of being a stay at home Mom, yet today I wouldn’t trade where I’m at for the world.

I’m blessed to be married to an incredibly supportive and loving husband, have three wonderful children and …

experience some amazing opportunities that have come our way, through Mommy Snippets.


I never dreamed this through but God orchestrated it all into place…

and continues to beautifully bring together pieces of this wonderful journey as I walk out each day.

    Nope, but then again are many people? Someday, when I retire, I will be in a much better position to do for me, but right now it’s all about my kids.

  2. 2

    My dreams are for my family right now too, like Robin said. I do plug along on my PhD, and that’s a dream of mine to complete. Just not sure I’ll be using it as I intended when I started the degree. A lot of things have changed, and I thought they were for the worse, but maybe they’re not. I like this relaxed pace of life quite a bit :) Funny how things work out, yes? :)

    Nice picture of this airplane taking off! I like my life with my family and all the fun that we have together! It is all about our family and loving them!

    I doubt many of us can say we’re living our dreams, but as long as we’re happy where we are right now, that’s all that matters.

  5. 5

    Being a SAHM/ WAHM is one of the hardest job… not even kidding and it is so stressful. I carry around this fear of when I am ready to go back to the outside work world if I will be accepted or looked down upon.

  6. 6

    When I was little, I never really thought about what I would do after I became a grown up. But I am leading a charmed life, for sure.

    Nothing greater in life to be is a Mom I think. Most fulfilling job there could ever be and brings so much love (lots of work too)

  8. 8

    I wanted to be a rockstar growing up, ha. It’s amazing how things change.

  9. 9

    I always wanted to be a teacher. I’m so thankful i didn’t follow through with that! I love being a stay at home mom and blogging.

    I love that quote!

  10. 10

    Ha! You know the line in “I dreamed a dream” that says “now life has killed the dream I dreamed”? That’s sort of where I am.

    Awesome photo!

  11. 11

    i always wanted to travel. Luckily, blogging has been able to help with that!

  12. 12

    It’s not too late to be a pop star Marina, just post some YouTube clips on here!! :D I’m living out some of my dreams and I have many more I’m working towards!

  13. 13

    It is amazing how much my dreams have changed since I was a teen. I am loving being home with my kids, and I never would have thought that would be for me.

  14. 14

    Beautiful quote. For the first time in my life, I actually believe that I have clear vision to what my dream is and how I can get there.
