Hello! I want to welcome you to my first ever blog post! So bare with me while I get this all figured out!
I decided to create a blog as a way to vent from my daily life, connect with others like me, and to have fun. Don’t get me wrong I love my life but sometimes a Momma just needs to let it all out. I have been married for almost 16 years and I have two kiddos. I have a 15 year old son and an 8 year old daughter who thinks she is going on 16! Ugh, I am not even ready for her to be that old yet.
I have a busy life like all moms do!
Some ways that I get in some me time is by reading. I have a love for books, all types of books! I know that technology has advanced so much and a lot of people love to read from their Kindles and Nooks but I am not one of them. I will admit that I got a Kindle when they first came out but nothing can replace a real book for me. I love holding it in my hands and the smell of the pages. I feel that I can sink deeper into the story if I have the book in my hands! I just finished reading the latest book in the Red Queen series and I must say that I am anxiously awaiting the next book which doesn’t come out until 2018!! That seems like forever away!!
I love writing, I have always pondered the thought of writing a children’s book or two but never got far on the attempt. I guess I always feared the fact that I might be a complete failure at it so not attempting it was the easy way out.
I absolutely love photography, the ability to capture a moment that lasts a lifetime. A memory held in place forever. I have just recently started tinkering with photography, the hubs is pretty awesome at it and he has been showing me a few things here and there. I know that with time and lots of patience I will be pretty amazing at it!
One thing that I hated as I was growing up was make up, I have recently grown a new love for it though. There is just something about putting on make up that gives you this since of confidence. Don’t get me wrong every woman should feel beautiful with or with out it, but with it I feel that I can conquer the day and look hot doing it!
And lastly I love just lounging poolside in the back yard. I won’t lie Houston suburbia back yards aren’t the biggest, they are actually pretty small! But it is my little get away from the chaos, and we spend most every weekend back there as a family. The radio going, kids laughing, hubby grilling, it is what spring and summers are made for!
