Another Beginning: Meet the Gozes

Hi! We’re the Gozes and we blog over here at Our Lemonade Days (Edited some 8 years later). I’m Ivy, the mom and wife, also the main writer. I’ve been married to Mark for 8 (17) years and we now have two (three) children: 6.5 (15)-year-old Marguerite and 18-month-old(10-year-old) Cameron (plus 6-year-old Sawyer). We’re a Christian homeschooling family aiming to fill our days with faith, love, creativity, encouragement and learning. We’re quite resolute to lead an extraordinary life. Simple, but extraordinary all the same. We’re sort of working toward this goal at a handicap since our training and conditioning are probably going to be of very minimal help to us in this undertaking. We hope to live as conscientiously and as wholesomely as we can with great attention to health, sustainability, frugality, etc. while allowing ourselves the gift of certain “luxurious” treats, such as travel and fine dining, at reasonable intervals.

If you’re wondering about our choice of domain name, it’s based on the old saying “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Basically, we’re finding beauty, inspiration and productivity in a less than ideal situation. My desired end is to have a blog that documents the blessings as well as the triumph over trials, a blog that inspires others or gives them ideas on various life matters. Readers can expect posts on homeschooling, homemaking, crafts and hobbies, travel, business and other financial matters, Scriptural musings, self-improvements, as well as freebies and giveaways. I plan to do photo and video tutorials, reviews, travelogues, and perhaps even interviews.

I hope that you can regularly visit us in this space and find that the time you spend here is definitely worth your while.
