Bloggity Blog

Hi Friends! I was motivated to start a blog to keep family and friends who live out of town up to date on my families’ adventures. I have had a passion for writing ever since I can remember. One Sunday, at church, we were given cute red journals and encouraged to write three things we were thankful for (big and small) each night. I was overly excited about this journal and wrote and wrote and wrote… I now have boxes and boxes of journals that I don’t know what to do with!

Writing became a natural way for me to express myself and I fell in love.  Of course, as I got older I stopped journaling daily. That was until high school when a teacher of mine (shout out to Mr. Leyba!) encouraged us to stop thinking so much and write.  He had a quote on his wall that said, “shut up and write”. I loved him and that quote. With his encouragement, my love of writing quickly came back to me.
I am also obsessed with photography. I say obsessed because it really is an obsession that drives my hubby crazy! LOL. When I was young my dad was always following my brother and me around taking pictures of us. I guess it rubbed off on me!  My dad and I share a huge passion for photography and I just can’t get enough pics of my adorable little boy. 

My husband, Tim (his nickname is “Tooth”), and I met in 2009 and married in 2011. I have a 10-year-old stepson, TJ, and we welcomed our son Ryder into our lives in 2013.  We are expecting a new addition (a little girl!) this July. And I can’t leave out my first “baby”, Lincoln Ross (our Chihuahua). Tim and I got Lincoln in 2009 and he is the coolest dog I’ve ever known.
I love: being a wife and mommy, writing, photography, family, traveling, fitness, dance, crafting, interior decorating, fashion, food, hair and makeup and more! My love for all these things will eventually end up on the blog.
