Well, where to start? I guess first and foremost, my heart and soul belong to Jesus! I am a stay at home mommy, wife, and small business owner... and photographer on the side. I'm passionate about God and my family and the little things in life. I am a Conservative Constitutionalist - God, guns, and freedom!

God has ABUNDANTLY blessed my life and my family and I can't give anyone else credit but Jesus and I am so thankful - for everything...including the storms. There is a song by Laura Story called "Blessings" - and it is so good to know that SOMEONE gets it... Someone really understands who Jesus is and what He is all about. If you've never listened to the song, do so.

" What if Your blessings come through raindrops... What if Your healing comes through tears... What if a thousand sleepless nights are what it takes to know You're near... What if the trials of this life, are Your mercies in disguise? " - chorus from the song.

Praise Him THROUGH the storm! God give me the strength! Thank you, Jesus, for overflowing my life with blessings!

I said that I am a small business owner - I am a crafter of ALL sorts. I can't just choose one! ;) However, while I do a multitude of things, my business generally revolves around crochet. Every chance I get, I'm working on something. My business is constantly growing with all sorts of items. Other things I craft (with)- I sew/stitch, craft with felt, buttons, wreaths, tutu's, wooden photography props, and so many other things.

My hubby, Joshua, is the IT field and a US Army Veteran(10yrs) and is a huge blessing in my life. And God gave us the greatest gift we could ever receive... our gorgeous little girl, Pippa Sophia. She's now 15months - brilliant, gorgeous, and well... just a tad stubborn. ;) I'm a *firm* believer in "Parent first, friend last". I love my growing family.

Born in Germany, raised in Pittsburgh, PA - lived the majority of my 30 years in Pittsburgh, although we recently moved to Ohio. While I love it here, it will never be... Pittsburgh. It runs too deep in my blood. I'm the oldest of 3 siblings.

I'm a God-fearing mommy, a wife, a writer, a sister, a friend, a daughter, a best friend, a crafter, a photographer, a realist, and an enemy.

My background is a shot I took of my hubby & daughter walking on a path at the park. <3 Blessings!
