About Me…For the Blizzard Blog Hop

my handsome hubby and me
Well…where to begin? I have been married for 12 years to my high school sweetheart. We met at Hardee’s (it was my first day at my first job). He was turning in his application to work there and started the next week. The rest is history…
After about 5 years of marriage, I became a law enforcement wife. Now I am holding down the fort while my husband is at basic training for the Army National Guard. I teach second grade at our local elementary school—small town, one elementary school.
Our three kiddies
We have three kiddos—the oldest daughter is 8 (will be 9 soon). The youngest daughter is 7 and the little boy is 6. We adopted the younger two children almost a year ago. They have lived with us much, much longer than that, though Smile
I have many roles: Christian, wife, mother, teacher, daughter, sister, and friend (I’m sure I am missing one).
Anyhoo…I guess that’s about all for now. Come back for the rest of the story.

Our family


  1. Hello! Nice to meet you! I teach grade 2 as well. Isn't it a wonderful age??? Have fun at the bloghop!

  2. Ok, I love that your about me photo on the upper left is taken in a vehicle and the 1st one for this post is in a vehicle! LOL I must be getting old because you guys look SO young and then I read you've been married for 12 yrs? Everyone around 30 looks like they're 12 hahaha

    My brother just joined the Army Guard out East. So proud of him. We live in a rural town in MN with only one elementary. My daughter is going to school to be an ElEd teacher.
