My three daughters keep my life full, my kitchen floor sticky, and my husband, Joel, highly outnumbered.
I teach college public speaking and writing, play a mean game of Scattergories, burst into spontaneous dance moves on occasion for no apparent reason, and take immense pleasure in a well-organized closet. I revel in the idea of cookbooks and recipes, but am content with ordering pizza. I wrestle with my children on the floor nearly as often as I sweep it, and I'll admit, I'm a frequent sweeper.
I married a man with an impressive track record. For over the past twelve years, he's made me laugh every single day.
My most defining characteristic -- the one which most deeply influences my actions, speech, and overarching life outlook -- is that I am a follower of Christ. I love God. He loved me first. I get the better end of this deal, by far.
I appreciate order, structure, and time for reflection, which are three desires in diametric opposition with the reality of motherhood. I wash and fold lots of laundry. If pink dryer lint was worth its weight in gold (lightweight as it is), I'd consider early retirement.
This blog is my space to embrace humor and find contentment in the most ordinary moments of motherhood and life. Thank you for joining me here.
