I was a cute little kid, wasn’t I! I grew up in a happy life. It wasn’t perfect, but there was happiness to focus on. My family moved a lot, and I enjoyed seeing new places and making new friends. I wasn’t particularly amazing at anything … except for being ME! I had some very cool experiences in my childhood (Taj Mahal or Great Wall anyone?!), and I will always be grateful for those.
I met my handsome best friend in college – Ricks College, before it became “BYU-IDAHO”.
I’ve been married to my (still-handsome) best friend for 14 years, and we have 4
monkeys children who are 13, 11, 9, and 3. Our family loves animals – we have two bernese mountain dogs, a rag doll kitty, and regular guest brought home by my family, such as frogs, turtles, and snakes.
I love photography, babies, sunflowers, chocolate, crafts, a good book, and my husband & kids! I’ve been a NICU mama 3 times. I’ve had Post-Partum Depression after 3 of my pregnancies, and now deal with chronic depression and anxiety. I’ve learned a lot about mental health over the years, and am happy that with the excellent help I receive, there is lots of sunshine in my days!
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know that I am a daughter of our Heavenly Father, who loves me dearly. I am an imperfect soul, trusting a perfect God, and the depending on the grace of Jesus Christ to help me through the chaos of life.
I’m a busy mom, running my own little 4 ring circus … while still remembering to find moments to sit back and watch the blessed entertainment that surrounds me!
Now that you’ve met ME – welcome to my blog! Grab some popcorn, sit back, and watch my circus unfold!
