About Me

Who am I?
I'm a girl saved by grace.
A wife to my best friend. {he rocks}
Mama to four precious littles here
and three precious littles in heaven.
Just trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up :)

I am learning everyday... 
To be more-
and consistent!
(some days I fail miserably- thankfully that's where Grace steps in)

I love:
with words
and my camera.
being in the kitchen- especially baking with the kids :)
hot tea.
being in the mountains.
dancing silly with my kids.

I want: 
More than anything,
for you to see the real me.
I want to be
really, really real.
It is my hope that when you visit here, that is who you see.

Please feel free to shoot my off an email anytime. I'd love to hear from you!
