I am a woman. A strong, independent, thoughtful, joyful, passionate woman.
I am a mother. The adventures of motherhood occurred at a later season in my life – age 31, to be exact. My personality, identity, and drive had already been procured, so transitioning into the selfless act of motherhood was harder than I thought it would be. Especially since my maternal instinct was through the roof. Now that I am done carrying and nursing babies, I have been able to reclaim part of the woman I once was. I can stay up later, socialize a little longer, and do things that I love to do. My husband and three children are my world, my life, my everything. When I’m away, I crave their voices, their touch, their personalities, their laughter, and sometimes even their tears.
I am a wife. My dear husband, Garrett, and I met online, had a whirlwind romance and married after 4 1/2 months after our first date. I love him to my core and thank God every day that he chose me.
I am a Veteran. I will write more about my time at war in the future. I will also share more about the autobiographical book that I’ve written – How to Pee Standing Up.
I am ambitious and a scholar. I am always trying to self-improve. To learn, to grow, to become my best self. I want to suck the most out of my time on earth. My next aspiration – developing more relational trust among organizations – is my latest idea and future endeavor. Again, more on that on a later date.
I am an outdoorswoman. I thrive in nature. This view for my desk says it all. I am living on a little slice of heaven. It gives me peace and regenerates my tired soul.
I am all of the above and then some. Thank you for joining me on this crazy adventure. Happy hot August Saturday to you all.
