Allow Me to Introduce Myself

This is my blog.

This is me:

This is my wonderful husband:

This is our sweet baby boy:

…And this is what happens when we try to take a family photo:


Let me tell you a little about myself. I grew up in a small rural town, in a small rural county the northern-most inhabitants of the small rural state called “lower slower”. When I finished high school, I moved to the north to go to college, where I met my husband in a Bible study, and we fell madly in love. We had the perfect, fairy tale romance. Two years later, we were married. We had the most perfect, fairy tale wedding. Four months later, we discovered our baby boy was on the way! Another (unexpected) dream come true! Then my husband went active duty in the military, and we were relocated. I left my fabulous job and our small rural life to become a stay-at-home mom and to follow my husband, happily wherever after, around the globe (well, so far to two other states). Since becoming a wife and mother, I have begun to learn a multitude of lessons about life, love, marriage, and parenting. It’s not always easy, but there’s always something to learn, and through it all, I have found that I am not in control, but my Father in heaven is. The most valuable lesson I have learned so far is that, while the fairy tale romance is beautiful and thrilling, what gets you to marriage is not what keeps you married. As my husband and I grow and learn together in our marriage, we are discovering the riches and treasures and joys that the early fairy tale romance does not even begin to touch.   

Join me in the journey of every-day life after the fairy tale; our happily ever after, wherever it may lead. 

Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” -Ephesians 3:17-19 (NLT)
