About Me

Me & my son Brayden [he’s about 8 months old in this picture!]
So glad you stopped by to get to know me better! I love learning all about people and what makes them ‘tick’! Here’s a little more info about me:

  1. I have always been a creative. It’s my outlet and what brings me the most joy and calm! #creativetherapy #makeallthethings #craftaholic
  2. I love animals so much. All kinds too! I am now living vicariously through my son’s love of animals 🙂 [a puppy will be in our future, just have to convince my hubby first]
  3. I married my high school sweetheart! He’s the best husband and dad.  We were friends first (11th grade) and began dating in 12th grade. What an awesome adventure we have had together…he’s my very best friend and biggest supporter!
  4. I am a MAMA to my son #sweetBraydenLuke.  It is the greatest job I’ve ever had and he brings us so much joy. My cutie boy is the best and I am having SO much fun teaching him, loving him & watching him grow ❤
  5. I am a teacher by trade. I’ve taught everything from Preschool to 6th grade and am currently using my Special Education degree to work with some sweet toddlers!
  6. I play the flute, did Irish dancing for about 11+ years & also played Volleyball in HS! So fun!
  7. I love all types of music. Ask those closest to me they’ll tell you I have a very eclectic library. Everything from BackStreet Boys to Rascal Flatts, Something Corporate to Stevie Wonder and Musicals galore!!! #musicismylovelanguage
  8. I’m an extroverted introvert (recently discovered it’s called: ambivert). I love social events and getting together with people, but I’m always so drained afterwards. Give me my comfy home and my 2 guys, and I am one happy camper.
  9. I have two brothers, a brother-in-law, a nephew, a son….you get the idea! I love boys and being surrounded by them. I like to believe my low-maintenance style, love for the outdoors and passion for adventure comes from having brothers!
  10. But, I also have a deep passion for all things motherhood and helping women. Supporting them and being there for them.  The women in my life (friends and family alike) hold special places in my heart!
  11. I prefer salty to sweet. My husband’s the sweet tooth and will go for the dessert before he eats any real food. Give me chips and dip or any form of a potato and I’m a happy lady! #Iwilleatallthecheese
  12. Snowboarding, swimming, biking, pilates, dancing and doing anything in the water makes me happy!
  13. I love makeup, but I tend to typically save it for special outings.  I’m a sucker for all of the makeup, hair and nail tutorials!
  14. I enjoy all kinds of games! Puzzles, word, strategy, video, card!
  15. Thrifting is an adventure for me! I always feel like I’m searching for treasure (I’ve learned the tricks from my Mom the original thrift/bargain queen).
  16. Some of my favorite TV Shows: The Office, Call the Midwife, Stranger Things, America’s Got Talent, DWTS, The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Lost, Law & Order: SVU. Don’t even get me started on movies (way too many good ones and if you’re noticing a pattern here I like a little bit of everything) I know there are more eclectics out there like me! 🙂
  17. I love trying new things and am usually down for anything! Even if it’s hard, I tend to take a break and go back to it at a later time!
  18. My family owns a log cabin in Vermont! We love it up there and consider it our home away from home.
  19. I’m an avid reader and thoroughly enjoy a good book! My summer reading list is long, & I’m slowly chipping away at it in the pockets of time!
  20. Jesus is my foundation. The rock on which I stand. He holds everything together. Without Him I am nothing! ❤

Thanks again for sticking around to read about me! You are awesome & I can’t wait to connect with you more! 🙂
