Hello!

Welcome to my space!  As a Mom of 4 kiddos, wife, photographer, PTA Mom, Soccer Mom, Sport Mom, Full Time workin' Momma... well it get's pretty crazy around here. We have a ton of fun watching these kids grow and learn, figuring out this parenting thing, and trying to not pull out my hair!  Stick around for some encouraging words, life stories that might make you feel like your life isn't all that crazy after all. Hopefully I can make you smile, laugh, maybe cry, and really just feel good.  Life is a blessing and all of the ups and downs are part of the ride.  I look forward to sharing my ride with you!  Hold on tight it's about to get crazy!  LOL

Life isn't always easy... that's the down parts of the ride.  I've been there it's hard!  I've been through a divorce right after my 2nd son was born.  A divorce that I didn't want, but you can't make someone stay with you if they have decided that is not what they want.  I tried.  It didn't work.  I wouldn't say don't fight though... because families should fight for each other!  It didn't work out for me, but it might for you, and I am here to say that if it doesn't work out.  If you fought and lost don't loose heart!  As my Grandma used to say,"this too shall pass!"  You may not see it right now, but it is all going to be ok!

 

Life can have some amazing twists and turns along the ride.  I never would have thought I would be where I am now, but here I am!  God is good all the time!  It is exciting and scary when some of those crazy twists are going on!  I had a baby, divorced, moved 3 times, fell in love, and got remarried (to a different amazing man!)  All in a year!  Yeah that was a very twisty turning part of the ride!  LOL

Just a little update about me... we are fighters - I say that because My husband is in the fight of his life against stage 4 colon cancer.  If you want to follow our journey please check my blog where I will update often.  We are believing God is not done with my husband.  This is just a part of the journey, and that we will come out on the other side stronger for the things we've learned through the fight.  Your thoughts and prayers through this time are very appreciated.  Ya'll Cancer sucks!  But God is Bigger!

 

A little about me! I am a Christian, and love Jesus with all my heart!  I love the country... you know outdoors ...in the middle of nowhere! I am also love this country... as in The USA!  I am a pretty patriotic lady!  I love photography!  I started taking pictures when I was about 9... no really I won a photo contest at school and I was hooked!  Taking pictures is a part of who I am!  I love to read!  Usually big fat huge books too! I am glad I don't have to carry the huge book with me anymore.  Though sometimes strangely I miss "real" books! I love to reading to my kids!  love to laugh!  I know that seems like a silly thing to put as something I love, but I think people don't laugh nearly enough!  I love to create!  Crafts, knitting, clay creations, anything like that! I love caring for those who I love.  I love to sing!  I love to be silly!  I love to have fun!  I love being a Wife and Mom!  Life is pretty good even if it's is CRAZY!!
