About Me

From the beginning of my story, I have always had God by my side (and later asked Him into my heart) and two super parents who have loved me and nurtured me and helped me become the woman I am today.

I also have a brother who, even though he is twelve years older than me, is responsible for some of my greatest childhood memories. One of my favorite memories is when he came home for a visit and brought me a HUGE box of stuffed animals with Kermit and Ms. Piggy and the whole slew.

The Couple

engagement2le5Fast forward sixteen years into my life and I met the man I would spend the rest of my life with. I was taking a Nursing class and he was taking a Carpentry class at a vocational school we both attended. I sent him my number, he called, and ever since then we have been writing our own happily ever after!

The Kids

Justin and I share two super kids! We are very blessed to have two beautiful and intelligent and spoiled absolutely rotten little babies (even when they are 80 they will still be my babies)!

Throughout my lifetime, I have learned a lot of things, both from school (since I even have a college degree) and also through life's many experiences. Most of what I have learned, has been through what I have experienced with my life though. Such as, the true meaning of love, patience, understanding, care, how to lend a helping hand when it's needed, how prayer can really work when nothing else seems to, and so much more! One of the biggest things I've learned is that God is my best friend and that He is always there for me. I also have learned that God and family must come before anything else.

The Story may ask the reason for me to jot down all of answer would have to be because it is worth remembering!

My main purpose of keeping a record of my life and our life as a family is to keep my kids updated (I think it will be neat for them to look back at the stuff that has happened in their lifetime over the years) and also to keep family and friends updated as well. So...if I had to answer in one word, I would say memories!

My life has definitely been a huge and super ride thusfar. Sure, I have had some uphill battles, but God has always brought me through them and usually I end up on the other side of the hill stronger and a better person than I was when I first climbed the hill that I had been climbing. Life certainly has it's challenges, but it also has it's many, many, many blessings that I am very thankful for! Through my lifetime I've witnessed laughter, tears, pain, joy, happiness, and even miracles, but I wouldn't change anything that I have witnessed because it has made me who I am and it has been a part of my life and a part of God's wonderful plan. The happy times certainly outweigh the bad times, but I will take the both of them as that is what God has intended for me to do and here is where I can add a few scribbles about my life's story and where I can remember every single moment!

  6. Hi! Following you back. My hubby is a carpenter too! As for family vacation, I'm not sure where you are, but we took a road trip 2 years ago. We drove out to South Dakota(from Ohio), with stops in Wisconsin on the way. Loved every minute of it. My hubby complained about the driving at the time. But, now he says it's time for another road trip. So. . . I love it out west though. In SD, you can see the Badlands, Mount Rushmore, Deadwood, Crazy Horse, Wall Drug. Loved it, loved it, loved it. Kids had fun too.
