A few years before I had my son, I had started my first blog. It was something that I had wanted to do for a while and I was very excited when it finally all came together, but after my little man came along, all of my free time went out the window. Don't misunderstand, I was beyond thrilled about becoming a mom. This was something I had prayed about for a long time. I just knew that I wasn't going to have as much time now, as I did before, especially to maintain a blog. So, I decided it was time to put blogging on hold for the next few seasons of my life and just focus on being a mama. I knew that if blogging was truly something God had called me to do, then He would provide the time in the future to start it up again. 

I was reading the book The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst, when l felt that God was calling me to start up my blog again. This was a "best yes" assignment that I needed to follow. This time around things were going to be a little different though. I created a new blog name and the focus and purpose of my blog is a little different. My blog is self-titled to reflect more of myself and what my blog is about. I have lots of  material, ideas, and encouragement to share with all of you. I'm excited to see where this journey will lead and I hope that you will join along with me. 

I am a thirty something mom to my beautiful baby boy Greyson, a wife to one amazing guy, and a daughter to a King! I have a cat and a fish. I work in a school as a speech-language pathologist. I love creating new things. I have an obsession with pretty journals and making lists. Fall is my favorite time of year. I love to savor my coffee, and most importantly, I am a follower of Christ! 

Statement of Purpose: To honor the Lord by obeying what His word says, "To love one another". I pray that through this blog, I can extend love to others by sharing all that I can, using the gifts that I was given. And, to just have fun!!!

10 Things You May Not Know About Me

1. I'm pretty good at tennis and I love snowboarding! I have been doing both since middle school and hopefully will continue for as long as I am able.

2. I have a younger brother, who was adopted. We are about 12 years apart and we have a great relationship.

3. I love driving, but secretly hate being the passenger. Maybe, because I have that feeling of not being in control, and it's even worse if it's raining. You don't want me in your car!

4. When I was in high school I wanted to be a marine biologist. Then I went to college, and I realized it was way too much work and I am deathly afraid of sharks. What was I thinking?

5. I am really good at memorizing things. I know all the books of the Bible, all the presidents, and tons of other random stuff that I learned when I was younger and never forgot.

6. I am a true extrovert, except when it comes to talking in front of others at work. For whatever reason when all eyes are on me, looking for an answer, I shut down and become extremely nervous.

7. My husband recently figured out that I am a huge John Hughes fan. Almost all of my favorite movies were either written or directed by him! I can watch his movies over and over again! 

8. I love rollercoasters! Since I can remember, I have always loved that feeling. Going super fast and upside down in circles till your stomach is in your throat feeling! My husband is the exact opposite though. Wonder what my son will be like?!

9. I am super sensitive at times. The smallest thing can throw me completely out of whack and I get super upset. And I am not talking about when it's that time of the month. "Look at that goose over there all by himself. He must have been left by his flock because he is hurt or sick". Instant tears!!

10. This last one, I am sure most of you know! I love to clean and organize! It is my life! I am obsessed with having things neat and orderly. It makes me so happy when I know I have to go through and organize things or clean my house!
