Let me be completely honest! I am scared to death to start a blog. I don't know why but fear is a tricky feeling. Who do I think I am? Well, I am just me and I am going with it and diving in. I love these topics and I want to write about them. Channel some of my passion out there and hope it inspires other to do the same!
Why now though? Jimmy and I have been married for 7 1/2 years. We have 3 beautiful children who require most of our attention. For our 7 and a half years of marriage, we have owned 3 homes. I know, crazy! Well maybe not, but between 3 homes, 3 children, and all the normal chaos, I have not even thought about my passions or personal future. Maybe a little sad but not to me. I adore being a mom and cherish the gift of being able to stay home with them. I am also a nurse! Well not right now, but I am still a nurse. Up until last summer, I worked part-time as a pediatric nurse. While I love the job, I am thrilled to be home with my kids full time now!
So here we are....and although the house is no where near decorated or probably not even big enough for us, I desire to make it a home for us to share our most precious moments with our family. I can't wait to share them on here... ok, fine, maybe this is also an outlet to speak to adults and not children....or maybe I am hiding in my basement for my moments of quiet (as I sit here I hear children crying, running, laughing, and all of the above)...but either way, I feel passionate about filling my home with both things I love or things I have made...to make my family smile and feel loved. Isn't that what this life is all about??? :)
