Hi friends!  I’m so glad you’re here and I’m excited to share a little bit more about my life behind the blog.  I am a thirty eight year old Mom and wife.  I have 3 stepchildren, Ava, Stella and Jameson and 2 of my own, Silas and Scarlett with my best friend and hubby Neil..  We have two four legged babies, Saint and Moose. To say we have a full house is an understatement!

I am originally from Baltimore and in marrying Neil, I relocated to be with him and his beautiful children. So now I currently live in a small town in Pennsylvania.  Adjusting to life in a small town wasn’t easy at first (I mean, Target is like 25 minutes away when I was used to having one 5 minutes from apartment!) but it’s been SO worth it.  I love it here and couldn’t imagine raising my babies anywhere else.  Some of my hobbies outside of blogging include singing, reading, being with my girl gang (that’s my mom and sis :)), going out to eat with my husband, decorating, and being with the ladies at my church and planning the next event we will do.  Oh, and now I’m also a homeschool mama! If someone told me I’d be homeschooling 5 years ago, I would have laughed til I cried but it has held the greatest reward!

This blog began as a way for me to share my heart and hopefully encourage others.  Other than my faith, I love sharing a good recipe, a beautiful piece of home decor, a great book and even a good sale!

I’m so glad you are here for the journey.



Questions About Me:

How did you meet your husband?  I was singing for a friend’s wedding that he was attending.  She was Christian mentor and he worked with her. We didn’t speak that day but connected on Facebook after and the rest is history!

What made you homeschool?  God. Never in a million years would that have been my idea. But God’s ways are always the best even when we have our own plans. His are better. Trust Him.

How did you start blogging?  I read “Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren.  I had always sang my whole life. And I just knew at the end of it, God was going to tell me to keep singing. But I was wrong. He told me “write, there is a purpose for your pain.” I had been through a lot in my 20’s and God wanted me to share my story.  The rest is history!
