Just a typical gal who happens to be a mama of 4 gorgeous little boys, wife to a super hot husband, foster mom to 3 gorgeous little girls, photographer, self proclaimed baker, sister, friend, health enthusiast, a farmhouse lover and DIY of all things pretty!
I'm a pretty down to earth, go with the flow and get it done, Jesus loving kind of girl. We live on an acre and a half in a small town in Colorado. It is as peaceful as it gets with 7 children, 2 dogs and a farm cat.
I adore my children, they have helped morph me into the woman that I am today. I discovered my love of photography through them. Started my photography career about 9 years ago after our first born arrived and every year I continue to grow in this area! My family has gotten used to the "don't touch anything I have to take a picture" mama that I have become!
After having my third child I was diagnosed with hashimotos disease. I believed that I would feel this way for the rest of my life. The brain fog, exhaustion, falling out hair and uncontrollable weight gain and loss yoyo. BUT about 2 years ago I changed my healthcare routine and it has 100% helped me. I feel better today than I ever have and I will never take advantage of my health again.
I have ALWAYS had a sweet tooth, like since as long as I can remember. I started to really get into baking in my 20s and it has taken off even more recently. I love turning something from raw materials into something beautiful and delicious. Plus it doesn't hurt to get the praise when everyone takes that first bite. I'd eat something sweet over something salty any day!
My husband can attest to that. Speaking of my husband, he is my backbone, like seriously I may "seem" to have it all together but he really holds me up and he allows me to be me. We have been married almost 12 years but dating since junior year in high school. He is my person, we do everything together. CRAZY FACT: he fly's hot air balloons, bet you weren't expecting that one ;)
So why start a blog?
People have been asking my like crazy why I haven't started one. I have things to share so why not share them! My hope it to bring Jesus, light, joy, positivity and fun into your life everyday! So glad your here!
Hope you enjoy a glimpse into my crazy, blessed, and sometimes hectic life! OH, and if it suits you well, grab a TEE and sprinkle some salt about Jesus right along with us.
