Hey there! I’m glad you stopped by!
My name is Keikilani (Pronounced: Cake-E-Lawnee.) I was born and raised in Hawaii which is where I got my unusual name. (My name is Hawaiian. It means Child of Heaven.) People call me Keiki or Lani, but never Keikilani. Unless I am in trouble… Then the full name comes out!
I’m married to the love of my life and we have six thousand kids….
Okay… We just have six kids. But some days it feels like six thousand.
Our children are a blend of adopted and biological babies.
We adopted our youngest 3 from foster care. They were our first placements after being licensed as foster parents. I love supporting families who are thinking about becoming foster parents or adopting. You can read more about foster care, adoption and our journey or send me an email and I would love to support you on your journey!
I started this blog in 2011 as a way to share my recipes with friends and family.
Even though I just had two little guys at the time I fell in love with blogging and sharing our family life, Motherhood stories, tips, tricks, & hacks for moms and of course, recipes (What can I say… I love to eat good food!).
I will be the first to tell you that I am not the perfect mom. I don’t have it all together. My kids often wear mismatched clothes (if they are wearing clothes at all!), my house is not Instagram perfectly decorated, I have no idea what I am doing with my make-up routine, and if fashion is yoga pants, I am winning!
If you are like me and have felt the pressure to be the perfect, regularly suppress mom guilt, need all the hacks, tips, & advice for your house, the kids, and just need a good, easy recipe for your family, then you are at the right place!
My mission is to encourage you, my sister, my friend, to realize that there are so many good things in your life. They may be small, or hard to see some days during this journey to survive motherhood, but they are there.
Hence, the name of this blog. All My Good Things.
I hope you will keep stopping by for the recipes, the family life tips, real motherhood stories and the kid stuff. You can subscribe to never miss a post.
Follow me on Instagram for the Insta-Stories that can’t be staged with six kids and chaos in the background.
Join me on Pinterest where I get most of my food inspiration and learn all the mom hacks.
And if Facebook is your favorite playground, I am there too!
Feel free to poke around this site and message me questions! I don’t claim to know everything, but I do try to channel Mary Poppins!!! Thank you for stopping by and I hope we become good friends!
