This is a strange feeling.. I’m not sure why, but beginning this blog is making me realize that so many events in my life have led me to this moment. You go through your childhood not knowing at all where you will go or who you will become.. and then one day, you’re there. All grown up. Looking at yourself in the mirror thinking ‘ wowzers, where did all those wrinkles come from!?’
It was May of 2008, at my 25th birthday party. One of those parties with way too loud music and way too much alcohol.. (yuck). The most handsome guy walked in and introduced himself. His name was Grant. He was my future husband and father of my babies. It’s almost as if life started in that moment.Now, for the first I’d say two years of our relationship, Grant and I wanted nothing to do with children. I mean, when we were around kids, we sorta cringed. So the fact that we have two little mini versions of us at home now, is just too funny. We have been married for almost five years. We have a three year old son named Kade, and a 5 month old daughter named Tegan. They bring so much joy, and also so much chaos into our home. I mean, the fact that you can love something so much that totally and completely brings you down to your knees in exhaustion is wild to think about. So, this little page is just a look into the life of a mom who doesn’t know what the H-E-double hockey sticks she’s doing. How did God decide that she was capable to raise human beings, keep a home together, and be a good wife??
Here is my look into life as a mom, wife and everything in between. This is for all the other Mamas and Women out there, who don’t have it all together all the time, but come together to empower each other to do the very best we can!
Love you all. Enjoy.
P.S. This photo was taken before we had kids. That’s why you notice a youthful, rested glow on our faces. That look has since disappeared.
