Well hi there!
I’m a wife. I get to be married to my very best friend. Jason is funny and creative and smart and handsome. I can’t imagine getting to share my life with anyone other than him. When I met Jason, I journaled that I hoped to some day marry someone like him. Getting to marry the actual him blows my mind to this day.
I’m a mom. These four people who live in our house constantly amaze me. They crack me up on a regular basis and they push me to be a better person. I’m sure the premature grey that I need to constantly cover up is almost exclusively their fault, but I did it to my mom too, so I guess that’s just how it rolls.
I’m a Christian. Some days it’s not a label that I want to wear, and some people probably don’t want me to wear it, but it’s true nevertheless. I grew up in the Church and got to know Jesus in 1988, particularly over that summer. Even when it frustrates me, my faith is a core part of who I am.
I’m a bunch of other stuff. This is the part that always throws me in these “about me” posts. The above are the easy labels, but I’m a lot more than that. I love music (listening and performing). I love writing (reading others’ stuff and writing my own). I love movies (particularly snarky comedies and movies about friends). I love coffee. I love Zelda. I love texting (this is why I have snagged on to Twitter big time). I love conversations in the car. I love soup.
I love meeting people on the internets. If you want to talk to me, you can comment on any post (I almost always reply) or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you’re still fuzzy on how to say my name, check out this awesome video that my friend Chuck made for me.
