A Little About Me...

Sometimes I pretend to have it all together, but that gets boring. 

I’m currently in my 30’s. I am a wife, mother, sister, daughter, grandaughter, niece and cousin. I have four daughters. I am their cheerleader, coach, fan, nurse, advocate, keeper of secrets, shoulder to cry on and number one supporter. I have an amateur farm that consists of 3 dogs, 4 bunnies and 23 chickens. I am a stay at home mom. My life revolves around my husband, girls and family. 

Those quick facts are the easy part to write… They roll of the tongue and I’m confident about who that woman is. If I take a minute to dig deaper, I’m not sure who the real me is right now. I have an amazing life, so this isn’t some sob story. I have thankfully spent the last decade, plus some years, being a wife and mother. As you all can relate, you loose a bit of your self in that journey. 

I am now at a point in life where all of my girls are in school, and I’m ready to do something big for me. After a lot of soul searching and encouraging words from my husband and family, this website came to life. I have a lot to say and I’m ready to find out if anyone wants to hear it. Follow me in my journey while I’m Holding My Own

Taking my Invertory:                             

  • Cons: I’m sarcastic, outspoken, overly opinionated and an overall hot mess. I’m sure this list could be added to. 
  • Pros: I’m loyal to a fault, my family always comes first and I can find laughter in almost anything
