Hi . My name is Stephanie and I am new to being an author on a blog. I have been an avid follower of many decorating blogs and have become, well addicted. I have found inspiration from many of these sites and thought I would give this a try.

I am a Mom of two wonderful young men. I am married to an amazing man who is in law enforcement. Which is why I named my blog No Place Like Home. After a long, intense day we all like to come HOME where we can feel safe and release the pressures of the day.

Welcome and buckle up for the ride :)

Define Mother - For me it is - LOVE from birth to death and beyond. The one who Loves you and believes in YOU.

The person (in my case, Woman) who has been there since the beginning.  The woman who carried me from 0-9 months, gave birth and life to me -after a long delivery.  The woman who fixed boo-boos, torn clothes and broken hearts. The woman who encourage me to try new things, work hard and love unconditionally.  My Mom has done it all.  She has been and is a wonderful Grandmother to our 2 boys, now men.  She came to my 3:00 a.m calls when I could not get the newborn to sleep or stop crying from hours and hours of trying.  The lady who shortened her vacation to be there for the birth of the second grandson.  She has survived the death of my Father and her husband.  She is a Cancer survivor.  She is brave, beautiful and best of all MY MOM.  Thank you Mom for all of this.

I hope that someday my boys will look back at me and think I did the best I could at the time.  I have wonderful stories and memories of the time I spent with them from birth till now.  I hope to have more memories and someday to include grandchildren.

If you are lucky enough to have a Mom, thank her for all that she has done and is doing.  This title Mother comes with a lot of Love, hard work and yes, heartbreak.  It is something I would do again if given the chance and I have NO REGRETS for doing it twice.  I love my children. 

If your Mother is not your birth Mother, she is just as special as she CHOOSE YOU.  My Father never knew his birth Mother.  The Woman who raised him from a few short hours after his birth till his death was a true Mother in all senses of the word.  She loved my Dad and his brother as her own flesh and blood.  She too was a great woman and I am proud to have had her for MY Grandmother.  She taught me many things, as my Mother did.  She taught me about nature and the beauty of flowers.  She taught me about the importance of family and LOVE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE.  Thank you Grandma.

Mother - The one who loves you and believes in YOU.  Thank her today.

Thanks Mom.  I love you!
