Today my blog ‘thistribeofmine.com‘ and my instagram turns 2! Where did the time go? I’ve been blogging for 2 whole years and it has been so amazing! I couldn’t of done it without your love and support though, so Thank-you so much! 🥰
I originally started my blog on godaddy.com at the beginning of June 2018 but I then merged over to WordPress.com in September 2018.. so some might say “Hey you started in September! but nope, we’ve been going since June 2018 🙌
I originally started my blog to document my weightloss journey on the keto diet but after some media attention on the size of my family it turned into so much more and I started blogging about our busy but fun lives as a Family of 11.
It’s been a blast! There have been some highs and some lows but I wouldn’t change any if it! You learn something new every day! I really enjoy writing and sharing my life with you all.
I have had some amazing opportunities along the way and have made some awesome freinds for life. I’m really enjoying this whole experience.
I love keeping my blog real and honest and fun! I’m looking forward to seeing what the next 2 years brings! 🙌
I thought I would introduce you to my tribe one by one. I hope you will enjoy reading about them all as I did writing about them.

We are a full-house and we are full of love. Life is amazing.

We eventually came home but Catherine got sick and had to go back to go hospital where she spent another 2 weeks recovering and growing. Catherine has an eye condition called ‘Amblyopia’ which is another term for the ‘lazy eye’ she wears really awesome glasses but didn’t have them on for this photo because they were being fixed at Specsavers. Catherine has big blue eyes and people always tell her she looks like a Disney princess.
