I am so excited to participate in this event again this year! I had such a blast last year and was thrilled when Susan and Janice set up the plans for UBP 2012!
For any visitors who are not sure what in the world I am talking about, please check out The Ultimate Blog Party that is hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom. It is a weeklong event (April 13th to the 20th) and an opportunity for bloggers to visit new sites and make new blogging friends. Oh yeah, there are prizes too!
So, now that you are here, let me fill you in on Simply Sandwich.
I am a never stay-at-home wife and mom of two kidlets, 18 and 13. Although my oldest is now in college, life still keeps me busy managing our home, part-time work for my husband and all of the activities of my middle school son. My mother, who used to live in our guesthouse, recently moved to a long-term care facility and as an only child; I am now her full time advocate and visitor. I am smack-dab in the middle of the Sandwich Generation and trying to balance it all.
Simply Sandwich offers a community for members of the Sandwich Generation. Here you will find support, dialogue and simple solutions for any busy mom. I write about the joys, tears and laughter of family happenings by highlighting teen activities and senior situations. I invite you to check out my About page for more details about the Simply Sandwich mission.
I generally post three days a week and I anticipate bringing back my weekly posts on how to “Keep Your Sandwich Simple” soon. I am also really excited because this month, I launched the KYSS award to recognize bloggers who provide support to Sandwich Mamas through simplified methods, demonstration of character and inspiration in managing a busy family.
For a sneak peak at some of my posts, I encourage you to check out some of my samples below:

Thank you so much for visiting and I would love it if you would let me know you were here so I can get to know you better!
