This is me ...
My name is Kimberly. I am a forty-something woman ... wife since 1996 to Doug and mother of 3: Keira, Nicholas, and Alex. I have been a stay at home mom since Alex was born in December 2005. I went on maternity leave and never went back. There's a long story involved there, which I won't go into. Let's just say it has been interesting. I made the adjustment from working mom to SAHM pretty quickly. And I love every minute of it! Okay, that's totally not true ... some days are HARD! But we manage. And I wouldn't trade the most difficult day at home for the easiest day at work. Ever.
I started writing at My Perspective back in September 2009 then changed the name to A Fresh Perspective a while later since there is another blog with the same name. My friend, Laura, introduced me to the world of Blogger after I had told her about my blog elsewhere. My sad, neglected blog. I started writing here, wondering what in the world I could ever find interesting enough to write about on a blog. But I was hooked! And I found things interesting enough to write about. At least I think so. You can judge for yourself.
I post a lot of pictures of my family. Mostly so my long-distance family can keep up to date on what's happening here.

This photo is from November 2009, which sadly is the last time I was able to get us all together for a family photo! Sad but true.

I also post the occasional recipe, a book review or two, photo challenges that I participate in, funny stories that I heard, etc. I'll share the good times and the bad, because we all have them.
My goal in life is to have a closer relationship with God ... to become the person He wants me to be. I often fail. But it is in failing that I grow the most.
I hope you enjoy your time here!
