Wordless Wednesday - Old Fashioned Christmas

I will come back and identify the people and the year, but the woman holding the little girl in front is my great grandmother, and I'm not sure which little boy is my paternal grandfather.

Blog Love Friday - Mamikaze!

 Astacia is teh awesomesauce.  I love her forthright honesty, her ready smile, her passion for her kids, and her servant heart.  She is a great encourager, she is very brave, and is stronger than she realizes. I met her at the Type A Mom Conference and saw her in action, and spoke with her in the special needs blogging session.  She is a passionate and educated advocate for herself and for her children! 

The "About" page on her blog is great, here are some highlights:

A stay-at-home mom, a self-proclaimed smart-mouthed social media addict, managing editor of Type-A Mom, as well as a college student earning a degree in digital design.  Mamikaze is a just as you guessed; a combination of Mama and Kamikaze. It describes her dive-bomber lifestyle. She has tremendous up and downs, and these mood changes prove to be excellent blog fodder. it also hones her bitchiness.

Astacia is also a diehard advocate of bloggers using Wordpress, she is an SEO nerd, and a writer for the Seattle Special Needs Examiner and Seattle Social Media Examiner.

Kelby (@typeamom) and Astacia (@mamikaze) taken at TypeAMom Conference, need to identify photographer!

Please go visit Astacia at, and if you are on twitter, she can be found at @mamikaze
