I started this blog with the hopes that I could have an outlet to share what is happening in life with friends and family, rather than ANNOY my sweet friends and family on Facebook. If you’re wondering about the meaning behind the name,
I figure that if they want to know what’s going on, then they can read my blog.
A little bit about me…..
I live in a small town in Florida and moved here with my family about 16 years ago. When people ask “Where are you from?”, I rarely say my birthplace (shoutout to TEXAS!!) because we moved all over and I have lived here the longest. Yes, it was EXHAUSTING, but my life would be much different if my family did not move so much. For that, I’m thankful.
I absolutely LOVE where I live and am grateful to have the opportunity to live here.
I have been a born again Christian since the age of seven and I have tried to glorify God as much as I can, in all that I do. A PERFECT person, I am not.
I have a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership. Also, I just happen to be a middle school administrator, which is a very tough, but sometimes rewarding job. A little known fact about my role in education is that when I stepped into the classroom, for the first time, it was actually the first time I had ever stepped foot into a public school. I pretty much said I wanted to teach, applied for ALOT of jobs, and on my 9th interview, someone took a chance on me. Eventually, I decided to go back to school to be an administrator, and then had my first child, which was an amazing miracle in itself.
After having my son, I became so emotional with all that I had experienced in finding out that I was pregnant with our child, losing my father, working on my graduate degree and my near death experience having my son, all in an incredible difficult and miraculous 9 months. It was in this time that I discovered I had a story to tell and that I definitely wanted to help other people. I started a blog and started to write, but the words wouldn’t come out right. I was worried about what others would think, especially those who knew me. In this time, I read alot about blogging with the hopes that one day I would be able to stay at home with this incredibly tiny human that God had finally gifted to me.
In this time, I moved on to a brand new job, after finishing my Master’s degree. I continued to mourn the loss of my father, the lack of my perfect birth story and anything else you could imagine. You could say I was incredibly depressed. It became apparent that I no longer was passionate about anything I was doing. Can you believe that? I felt like God had taken away so much from me, as if it was my right to have the perfect life story. It couldn’t be further from the truth. My incredible son, who we tried to have for four years, is perfectly healthy.
God has given me the strength I needed to recover from all of the health issues preceding my pregnancy. I have been able to have an impact on children who are without parents for one reason or another. In addition, I have been able to give encouragement to many adults who have been discouraged, especially within the education field.
This is the man that I call my husband….
We have been married for almost five years and I can truly say that he is my prince charming! I don’t mean to brag, but he makes my life so much better and I have learned so much from him. It may sound cliche, but he truly has made me a better person, in more ways than one.
Even BETTER, he is an amazing father to our new little guy. We have waited for him so long and it was worth the wait!
