WELCOME TO MY BLOG! Meet the family & me!

This is my first post after completely redoing my site! If you know me, then you know that this site used to be my father’s blog. I took over the blog after he passed away. I kept all of his original posts and am working on a page as a tribute to him, but decided it was finally time to turn this into something bigger. I will still be addressing mental health/mental illness, but I will be covering a myriad of topics and I’m extremely excited! This new site is definitely a work in progress but I have the foundation and I cannot wait to build on it!

Not only will I be talking about all things motherhood, family, favorites, and life in general… I will also be incorporating fashion, beauty, home, working towards paying off debt, and even featuring my hubby along with some of our hobbies!! I’m so excited to dive in as I have a lot planned in regards to upcoming content and big life updates!

I want to start off though by introducing myself and my family. My husband and I have two amazing kiddos (ages 1 & 3) and two of the best fur children anyone could ask for (lab collie mix & pitbull/boxer/black lab mix). My husband and I have been married for almost 5 years. He is a locomotive engineer (which I’ll actually be getting into more in the future) and I have worked as a freelance makeup artist for over 6 years along with side jobs like social media marketing for small businesses. I recently helped start/develop a local mom group in our city that has grown majorly and I cannot wait to see what God has planned for that! We live close to all of our parents and a few siblings. We couldn’t imagine a more amazing place than the Midwest to build a life and raise our children!

I am very passionate about supporting women, moms, building each other up and using the unique skills/interests/passions that God gave each and every one of us to compliment one another and work together to make the world a better place, and glorify God in the process.

I love that meme that says “I’m a trophy wife, but more of a participation trophy” or however it goes. I feel that in my soul. I love being a mom but I also would not describe myself as mom of the year by any means. I’ll tell you like it is. I’m very open about mental illness, struggles of motherhood, and the raw and real of life in general. I love my friends but I love to recharge and have time to myself! I’m an enneagram 4 and an INFJ, coffee lover, watercolor obsessed, love to people watch, hate doing dishes, and my happy place is sitting on a covered porch in a swing while reading The Awakening by Kate Chopin or building my dream home via Pinterest.

If you have made it this far, you are a trooper!! Can’t wait to start getting content out and share it with all of you!!

I took over my father’s blog September of 2017 after losing his battle with mental illness. This blog was originally to share my journey through grieving, finding peace, and trusting God in the process...and in many ways is exactly that. This has evolved into life as a family of 4 with 2 dogs, living in the Midwest. I will cover everything from fashion to our family routines. Join us on this crazy adventure!
