I like to say blogging is my “writing” career pursuit that never happened….My goal as a high school and college student  was to write a book. Specifically a children’s book. My lack of patience and pursuance has gotten me no where, but here…

I have come to the realization that a book may never happen, but that is just fine with me. I used to write. A lot. BUT it is amazing how priorities change. In a good way. I have a family now and they take up all of my time. Which is a huge blessing.

So my priority is no longer writing a book. Because my main goal in life is to honor God with my whole heart. As hard as this is on a daily basis, I must remember he sustains and gets us through it. I think one day I may have an opportunity to pursue a book, but I may not. Here I am. Filling that void with a blog. To write creatively and passionately.

So, let this journey begin. Whether you choose to follow me, learn life with me, or happen to stumble across this site, thank you. This is the closest I will get to a children’s book. For now, my blog allows me to write about things I passionately love.

“As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

-Joshua 25:15

Time has flown by lately.

Between playing with Emma, taking care of Ava, working on our home, and working at our business, we have passed 4 weeks already….It has been a very blessed month and we are so thankful for our new baby girl. Emma is doing really well with Ava. She has given lots of kisses and hugs.

Happy 6th Anniversary


6 Years. Working on a marriage filled with God’s Love, forgiveness, laughter, friendship, and each others love for one another.

In 6 years, we have done so many fun things together, learned so much together, and grown so much together. Being married is one of the best and hardest things to do, and we would not change it for the world.
