About Me

Me? I am a mid-thirties wife and Mama of four. Soon after our marriage, we made our life in Northern Africa for six and a half years. This sometimes brought me great joy and satisfaction. But sometimes it also made me want to throw my own pity party and eat an entire batch of fudge icing with a spoon. My two older children were born during that time (but I gave birth in the States).

However, in January of 2013, when I was almost eight months pregnant with Lil' A (and planning to deliver there that time), the government of that dear country so very kindly (or not) asked us to leave. And fast. So within eight days, my husband, two children and my very pregnant self had packed it up, sold the rest and found ourselves grieving the loss of our home and life that we had learned to love and thrive in. I had to say goodbye to the preschool that I started and was running at the time and my precious staff that worked with  me.

We then made our home in Colorado for three years. That was a pretty sweet season and while I admit life in America is preeeeety comfy... we still missed our daily life in Africa. So we made the decision to move back overseas. A surprise fourth pregnancy changed our timeline a little, but on Christmas Day 2015, we moved our family of six to a mega-city in the Middle East. Life is once again full of the adventures and challenges of life in a foreign country!

I am an experienced bottom wiper, a super-fast PB&J preparer, a cuticle picker and a vintage hanky collector. I also have found myself running preschools, first in Africa and then in Colorado also. You also probably don't care to know that I prefer to sleep two to five pillows.
I love to try new things. I don't mind instant coffee. I have a desire to 'create' (that is where this blog comes in). I have a serious sweet tooth. I love to give gifts. I could organize until the cows come home. And I adore my husband who is my best friend and one of the best gifts I have ever been given.

I am an amateur writer. An amateur photographer. And I strive to do those things and and everything else I put my hands to to give glory to Jesus, my Savior and friend.

This is my blog.
