What Do We Do?

Oh. My. Goodness. Gracious. 

We do a whole lot of things. But then again, doesn't everyone?















And so on and so forth.

But if you are wondering specifics, Husband (whom I lovingly call "Collin" in real life) is a high school science teacher. (He is super smart.) I suckered the Handsome Hunk into marrying me July 1, 2011, and we have been joyfully journeying through life's highs and lows ever since.

Toddler (whom we usually refer to as "Jocelyn") is a total wild card. She pees a lot in her diaper, unwraps tons of toilet paper rolls, and dons two irresistibly chubby cheeks that I could kiss and munch on all the day long. She puts the "STUBBORN" in "Stubborn." I don't think it is possible for me to love her any more than I already do. 

Baby "Pat," is the child currently baking in my oven. (We're not yet sure if Baby Pat is a boy or a girl, so we're sticking with the gender-neutral name "Pat" for now.) We pray for a healthy pregnancy, and for a healthy Baby Pat to arrive around July 15, 2015.


I am a mom. I used to teach little first graders how to read and write, but that is on the back burner for awhile. I still do some accreditation work from home for Inter-American School in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala, but right now my priority is to teach, run around after, play with, and nurture Toddler and Baby #2. 

And when I can find spare time, I love to write. What about?

#1. Jesus, because He is the reason for the hope that I have in this dark, and somewhat very disturbing world.

#2. Life, because there is so much beauty in the simple, everyday moments that are often overlooked.

#3. Anything that makes me laugh, because laughter is how I cope with life.

And lest I forget, thank YOU, my dear friend.

Thank YOU for reading, and for commenting, and for sharing my writing. Thank you for joining in on the conversation of love, laughter, encouragement, challenge, and community I hope to create through my writing.

If you were touched in a special way, I praise God, and give Him the glory!

May you be blessed, as well as a blessing to those around you.

Grace and Peace,
