That sounds super cheesy, but really I am excited you’ve found us. What once was a little blog that just kept family in the loop with what was going on in the craziness of our lives, has turned in to a passion.
Moving into a home that was literally deemed “uninhabitable,” I love to post on the progress of our remodel, simple DIY’s, family-friendly recipes, fashion, and things God has impressed upon my heart.
But my favorite topic is our ever-growing family (2 biological boys 15 moths apart & 4 beautiful kids from Ethiopia). I do my best to be real and honest about life, our struggles, and how God stretches me through (so many) mistakes along the way.
Oh and curious about our name, Hugs & Punches?
Sigh, it’s the perfect description of our middle boys, Anton & Laith. When Anton (the sensitive, tender one) was two, he gave one year old Laith a hug (the crazy one, whom we call “Crash”) and said, “I love you Laith!” Little Laith turned and punched him square in the face.
Yep. That’s our family.
