Andrea Birch is a southern belle from South Carolina now living in the lower Hudson Valley of New York. She is the blessed-beyond-belief mother to 5 beautiful children and wife to her very handsome husband. She loves coffee, babies, sharing hearts, flowers in jars, and cozy beds among many other things. She has a heart for encouraging mothers to live in real relationship with not only their husband and children, but also the people the Lord has put in their lives. She has been blogging at her little place on the web, The Flourishing Mother since way back in 2006.
