About me

About me... where to start?  I'm 35 years old, and I married my dream man in June of 2006.  We had our daughter in May of 2009, our first son in December of 2011 and our second son in April of 2015 and they are the best parts of our life.  We also have 3 four-legged furry kids, otherwise known as Dachshunds, Oliver and Sadie, and our massive 105lb Golden Retriever, Sampson. They truly are our first children, and we treat them as such.  I'm originally from the mid-west (NW Illinois to be exact), but I've lived in IL, IA, WI, FL, OK, AZ, Italy, AZ again and now CA!  I have a degree in business management, but I have put my career on hold to raise my children and be a stay at home mom.

I'm an incredibly open person, maybe even to a fault.  I love being surrounded by friends and family, although large groups sometimes make me nervous if I don't know everyone well.  I would hope that if people had to describe me with one word, they would use the word sincere.  I love to read and watch reality TV, and I think I'm one of the few people left in the world that still hand writes REAL letters.  I love sending AND receiving mail.  Traveling is a huge passion of mine (and my husband's) and if I had an endless supply of money, I would travel non-stop.  I am an amateur quilter and could spend hours looking at fabric and I love photography and am learning how to edit pictures.
