It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.

      -J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan

I am…

I’m a daughter, a sister, and a wife.  I’m a mom, an aunt, and a teacher.  I’m a photographer, a cheerleader from the sidelines, and a chauffeur who gets paid in hugs.  I’m a makeup distributor, a fashion enthusiast, and a coffee drinker.  I’m a lover of good chocolate, camping, and champagne.  I’m a blogger, a writer, a dreamer.

I do…

I do my best writing while I’m on my daily walk (yes, I’m aware it looks ridiculous for me to be typing on my phone as I walk into low hanging branches), and I do my most creative thinking at the ridiculous hour of ten o’clock p.m.  I am both a perfectionist and impulsive.  I hate the thought that anyone would read something I wrote that isn’t perfect, but sometimes the words just have to be thrown out there—perfect or not.

I believe…

I believe in God, fate, and destiny.  I believe the grass is greener where you water it and that no one else’s life can be used to compare mine.  I believe that children are worth investing in and people are not perfect.  I believe that moms are heroes and crying is good for your soul.  I believe there is no such thing as enough clothes, shoes, tattoos, or makeup.  I believe that small towns build character and farmers don’t get enough credit.

This is all of me…

I hope the words on these web pages bring you comfort when you are sad, laugh lines when you are bored, and realness in a world gone crazy.

Be grateful, water your own grass,

…and drink coffee.
