Putting myself out there today. Talking about depression and vulnerability. Please be gentle. :)
Thank you for sharing this space with me. It's hard to show up on here and be completely real. I want to remember the good, and so I try really hard to fill this place up with the happy. But I truly feel that in order to be m...

I've been MIA for quite some time. Mostly because I took on a full time chauffeur job when school let out and have done nothing more than cart children to VBS, swimming lessons, the pool, ball games and the like. Not that I'm...

Mother's Day always gives me mixed feelings. On one hand, I think it's a beautiful way to pay tribute to all the mamas and grandmas in our lives. There's always a reason to love up amazing women in our lives, but then again, ...

Enjoying
Remember that one time when we had 70 degree weather? Oh yeah, me neither. I think it was a dream. I kid. I kid. In all seriousness, I'll take 40 degrees any day over negative temperatures and bone chilling wind. Quite honestly, if we have too many gorgeous...

    If I had to describe myself, I'd say I'm pretty vibrant. I love color. I love spontaneous. I love change (most of the time). My head is in the clouds often, and I'm a dreamer more than I am a realist. Dan's pretty good at keeping me grounded, yet he doe...

Okay, so I was, until Spring weather decided to show up this week and totally obliterate those icky seasonal depressive feelings. However, who doesn't love a little Adam Levine lyrics on hump day? He makes seasonal depression...

Work
Occupation
I'm living my dream. I've taught preschool, was a reading coach, 3rd grade and will be going into the fall teaching 2nd grade this year. It is incredibly rewarding and exactly what I imagined myself doing.
Basic Information

Female
Story
Tagline
Wife.Mom.Daughter.Sister.Friend.Teacher.
Introduction
Welcome! I created this blog as a way to remember those moments that so often get away from me. I want my kids to have something to look back on...a gift from their mama. I want to share our memories, our experiences, my hopes and dreams for my family and my children, my mistakes and how I'm learning from them, and everything else along the way. I aspire to be a woman who never forgets to live in the midst of her busy life and to teach her children to live the same way, hopefully inspiring others to do the same. So enjoy the ride! I plan to!
Bragging rights
Currently, I'm married to Dan, an amazing man and father to our three beautiful children Jaedyn, Carter and Sawyer. Nine months of the year, I'm doing what I've wanted to do since I was a child-TEACH. The other three months of the year, I get to be a mom.
