About Me

I'm the extroverted introvert with a laid back personality, who happens to find herself behind the lens, enjoying life.

I am living my dream as a mom and wife.  
Our family decided to stop saying "one day" and chose to follow our dreams.  We  bought a farm and built our dream house.  Yes, we drive a little further and some people think we're a little crazy.  But we are loving this new adventure and slower pace of raising our kids in the fresh air.  We've added some animals to our life and I'm doing things I never thought I could.
Without Christ I am nothing.  Each day, I strive to be a little more like Him.  I hope this blog is a reflection of His grace and mercy.

I'm a former educator who picked up the textbooks again to homeschool my 3 children. It's been the best decision we've ever made, but some days I just have to pretend I know what I'm doing. ;)
Some things that take me to my happy place, in no particular order:
~chai lattes
~my good looking husband
~paint chips
~ducks on our pond
~fabric swatches
~the mountains
~my children laughing together
~reading, writing and blogging (not 'rithmatic)
~river kayaking
~the time of evening when the shadows are long
~laughing out loud

This blog is a creative outlet for me. It started as a journal, but has morphed into a great place to interact with my readers and friends. I like to keep it real, inspire, encourage, and top it off with humor. Life is too short to not laugh at myself.
