If this is your first time visiting Six Cherries on Top, thank you for stopping by, I am so happy you are here! I have participated in The Ultimate Blog Party a few times before and have met some really sweet and amazing bloggers. I look forward to getting to know some of you this year too, so let's pop open the bubbly and get this party started!
My name is Joni, military wife to Jason and stay at home mom to six children, living in a small town in North Carolina. Raising a big family is a lot of work, so I started blogging here at Six Cherries on Top back in 2009, not only as a way to document the lives of my children, but as a therapeutic way of finding myself and connecting with others.
In 2013, I lost over 50 lbs. when I began eating clean and discovered a love for running. I share fitness tips, healthy recipes, as well as my own personal journey with health and fitness through my series Healthy, Wealthy, & Wise (formerly Fat Butt Friday). I also do the weekly link up, The Polyvore Files, which shares all of my favorite fashion and home decor creations from Polyvore. And in between all of my mom duties, I also run a small photography business on the side.
This is Jason, my handsome hubby. I kinda sorta love him to the moon and back! He was an active duty U.S. Marine for 12 years, but recently reenlisted in the U.S. Army National Guard, as a member of CBRN defense. Up until recently, many may have thought he was imaginary, because he frequented the blog so little. However, back in January of this year, he started making regular appearances when I began the series, 52 Weeks of Jason. When he's not protecting our country, he works for DirecTV and has a love for Sci Fi movies and TV.

And, these nuts here are my Cherries! Six amazing children, each with their own unique personalities, yet they are so much alike at the same time. Most people have no idea that we are a blended family. A modern day Brady Bunch! In their eyes, there is no difference and their love for each other is forever strong. Be sure to check them out each week for Mini Style (a weekly link up with Our Holly Days), where I share their individual styles with affordable fashion. With six kids, this mama is always looking for a deal!
We are definitely a family who loves to be silly and have fun, and I would even go as far as saying that we would make a pretty hilarious reality TV show. But, you will always find us at church on Sundays worshiping our Lord and thanking Him for our many blessings.
