I was raised in an Amish home in Central Ohio, until the age of 10, and I have many good memories of that, some of which include driving horse and buggy to my grandparents’ farm, and building teepees with my older sister.
While some kids were playing nintendo, we were playing with horse bits and harnesses, dolls and dirt.
Growing up without t.v. or electricity provided a foundation of creativity and a deep appreciation for simplicity, that has followed me to this day. Being raised in a close-knit community where we all helped each other, still remains one of the best things that ever happened to me.
It taught me early on that life is not about ME and what I can get out of it, it’s about giving. It taught me that I am a key player in someone else’s life, and that I am valued and needed.
So here I am, raising my own family in the wild land of Colorado. Many things have changed…I lost my dad and my baby brother and I fell in love with a boy from Kentucky along the way. We got married, and several years later, Kentucky Boy followed my heart (and a business opportunity!) back to Colorado, which is where my family has lived for many years.
Together, we’ve made two of the cutest babies you’ve ever seen. (Just letting you know, so you’re not caught off guard when you see glowing pictures of them, on this blog.) And we love exploring the world, along with them.
This blog is my discovery of God in the fine print we call “life.” It is my journey into health, from sickness and watching my dad die of cancer. It’s my journey into love, after infidelity, broken trust, and unrealistic expectations of marriage. And of course, the constant adventure of finding happiness, in the everyday moments of life with a spunky little girl and a curious baby boy.
In the end, I realize it’s the little things that make me happy. This blog is proof of that.
And I’m so glad you found me! Thank you for stopping by!
