About Me

For a few {ok, alot of} fun facts about me: Don’t ask me to talk much in the morning until I had my coffee {black}, unless its a White Caramel Mocha from Starbucks. I have a tendency to push important jobs to the back because when I do them they have to be done right, & in an organized fashion. I can get something done very quickly, but for true satisfaction all the details must be covered. Being outdoors, especially in flowerbeds and the garden is one of my favorite past-times. Also I love sunning and swimming-there is absolutely nothing quite like soaking up the sun and sweating it out. [this crazy girl says, the more heat the better!] Summer is my favorite season {obviously}.  Pink is my go-to color, red also does quite nicely. White chocolate or caramel candy {or pretty much anything sweet} is the bomb! Full Moon are the best times of the month. Horses and anything cowboy is sure to attract my attention and money, they are such elegant creatures and I wish I could ride one. Christmas is my all-time favorite holiday, Valentine’s day follows. Birthdays [and now Anniversaries] are so super important to me, don’t … Continue reading

About my Blog

I started this blog for 3 reasons which will tell you a lot about me. #1. Documenting. Important details, Journaling or a diary, Taking note of ‘happenings’ has always been of great importance to me, I don’t know how many journals/tablets/diaries/notes you would find should you dig through my ‘packed-up boxes’, but it would be alot! Ever since I was around the age of 12, I documented things, it wasn’t always consistent, but if someone wanted to know when we had a big day of freezing corn last year(or anything random)-it was probably me they would come to to find out when that was. So my goal here is to document any important things that take place in our life together -however big or small- whether it be personal, about us, and as we begin our family. Through writing and pictures-fun things that I don’t want to forget. I want it to be a treasure chest filled with memories and love recorded to be pulled up at any time. And lessons learned through hard times to see God’s faithfulness. I would like for my children to be able to browse through it and be blessed! Family is so very important to me and I always want to make that … Continue reading

My Story

Wow, every night that i snuggle in beside my hubby, i think, am i really married to this guy?! and i’m still so in love with him? and i grin and get all warm fuzzies n give him a tight squeeze just to make sure he is actually there beside me, and also because i want to take advantage of every day we have together. life is short and i don’t want to live with or create regrets. everyday is a gift and it’s been one of our greatest keys in our happy marriage-opening every moment as a beautiful treasure. {honesty & patience are 2 more very important keys!} Looking back, I smile. As a young girl I so desperately wanted to get married and depend on my husband to take care of me…I dreamed and prayed for him many a night, even before I knew his name.  As I matured into a young lady and in my relationship with God, i really felt Him calling me into ‘something’ – and as it  turns out it was something[s]! At this point i was like, no….this whole marriage thing can just wait, i’ve got some things to do and so i … Continue reading
