In February 2013, I turned 41. I took a good look around and realized that I had arrived in my own life and it was time to get off the Highway.
For 18 years I taught high school English. But I made a deal with my husband, Shea, that I would have the third baby if I could stop working and be home. He made it so, and I recently celebrated my first anniversary of being a stay at home mom.
I believe in people, life and justice. I love sports, cooking and boots, kind of in that exact order. And I am a Catholic daughter of God. My life is filled with amazing graces, and I want this to be a place where we share and support grace, and help each other recognize our destination: home.
I am a stay-at-home mom of two girls. I “retired” from teaching high school English when my first daughter was born, two years ago, and have never looked back. We welcomed our second little one into the world just a few months ago. Life certainly isn’t boring around here!
I love Paris and Provence, singing and dancing, Disneyland, and correct grammar. I attempt to walk in grace, peace, and acceptance and am successful most of the time. And at the end of every day, I am so grateful to be right where I am: wife to a wonderful man; mother to two beautiful children; daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, kindred, to the kindest and most supportive family; child of God. Let’s celebrate where we are together.
One thought on “About”
I was a mom that didn’t work outside the home, too. As a former teacher, I really wanted to give my own son 100%, not a classroom full of other people’s children. It was the best thing I ever did! Congrats to you too.
