About My Blessed Life

Welcome to my blog!  I am so excited that you and really hope to get to meet you soon!

This is the little space where I can share with you the things I love.

I have loved to write for almost as long as I can remember.  I used to have this tiny little notebook that I would carry with me.  It contains some of the silliest poetry you would ever read.  I have written stories, songs, essays, notes, poems, and who-knows-what-else.  Somewhere along the way, I started considering writing a blog, but it didn't turn into anything until after I married my high school sweetheart in the spring of 2011.  Once I switched to working part time I needed something else to "keep me busy".  

This blog is my outlet, and I love it!

Someday I hope to be a teacher, but for now I lifeguard, teach swimming lessons, and tutor.  Tutoring is amazing!  I love all of my students and come home feeling so energized (most days).  If I only tutor (not teach) the rest of my life, I believe I will be perfectly content....as long as a crochet hook is also nearby.

You will find all sorts of crafting and cooking posts on this blog.

I have done crafting projects of all sorts my whole life and thoroughly enjoy DIY projects.  My amazing mother made it one of her goals to make sure her daughters were well equiped with every sort of housewifely (is that word?) skill.  In some ways this blog is a living tribute to her since I learned all I know due to her encouraging and providing the opportunities for me to learn.

Most importantly, I am a Christian and love serving the Lord with my husband, Travis, however I can.  We both love working with high school students as well as peers.

The purpose of our marriage is to
glorify God.  

Please join us on this exciting adventure of serving Christ and living our lives for His glory day-by-day!

Be blessed!
