I get things done! I thrive when I can organize,  plan,

budget, & train for things. 


I took up blogging because I wanted to have a place where I could chronicle all our big life events. It was between a blog or a shutter fly book each year.


My parents are wildlife ranchers in central Texas. We lived in a double wide trailer on our property for 4 years of my child hood.

I married my favorite person & the most handsome man in the entire world.


The 3 things I can't stop watching are Gossip Girl, The Office &, Harry Potter.

On Ennegram I am a Challenger.

Physical touch is my love language, but I for sure don't come across that way.

JUST TO BE CLEAR: I am not going to talk about my weight...

WHOLE 30 was WAY more that I bargained for!!! Here's what I mean...

Do you think your food consumption or avoidance can be a reflection of your overall discipline in life?

Do you think what you eat affects how you are experiencing God?

Do you think that God CARES about what you eat and how you treat your body?

When I started the Whole 30 at the beginning of January, I found myself asking these questions.

Instead of Resolutions this year, I am opting for Reflections & Questions - and they are anything but normal!
