All About




I'm married to Michael, whom as far as I'm concerned is the best guy in the whole wide world. Why? Because he helps me with the laundry and the dishes and rubs my feet and my back after I've had a long day with the kiddos. Yeah .... he's pretty much as amazing as they come, that husband of mine.

I'm a mommy to a vivacious eight year old, Brayden, who is eager to explore the world and is now starting to be at that age where playing with his friends is cooler than playing with his mom (I'm not dealing with that so well). I'm also mommy to a rambunctious four year old, Gage, who is about as independent as a four year old could possibly be. Currently he and I are in the throws of spending our last year together before he heads off to pre-k.

I'm a city girl at heart who lives in rural Pennsylvania. I went to Pitt not once, but twice. First for creative writing with an emphasis in poetry and secondly for nursing. What can I say, I'm one of those indecisive girls who is always searching for the ever changing things that I'm passionate about. Along the way I got married and started to settle into my life and my husband and I had our kiddos. And then BAM, there was that life passion of mine that I had been looking for.

I've been a stay at home momma that in my extremely rare free time is usually engrossed in a book, scrapbooking the tens of thousands of photos that I take of my boys, or taking a much needed nap. Its those simple things in life that get me by and keep me some varied version of "sane".

My likes include:
Naps
Using the bathroom without my children bothering me
Mr. Clean Magic Erasers
and Bedtime

My dislikes include:
Boys who don't put the seat down
Snotty Noses
Kids who think it's ok to bring toads and other assorted creatures inside of the house

Above all else, we strive to live with J-O-Y in our household.
Jesus first
Others Second
Yourself Last

I hope that you enjoyed this little glimpse into my extremely busy, but oh so charmed life and that you'll be back soon. ♥
