About me

Occupation SAHM
Location Virginia
Introduction Grab a diet coke with lemon, and let me tell you why "This is the Life." I am a very happily married Christian stay-at-home Mom "retired" from a 15 year career in finance/accounting who's trying not to go insane raising a 8 yr old and a 6 yr old while in my mid-forties. I've been told I have an easy laugh, and that maybe I'm good at a couple of things. But of course, I feel like a jack-of-all-trades, master of none. I enjoy keeping this blog to chronicle, journal, process thoughts, inspire, be funny (at least I think I am), and let you know that it's ok to be a little on the sassy side and still have a heart for the Lord. All in all, This IS the life I've always wanted to live as it has been so carefully and wonderfully woven and spun by our Heavenly Father. I am blessed beyond expectation and what I deserve. What about you?
