When I was in my twenties, I thought I had it all figured out. I spent quite a bit of time having fun, traveling, going to school, and basically enjoying myself. I figured that by the time I turned 30, I would have a career, a husband, a home, and at least one child. Instead, I ended up battling infertility, getting a divorce, and having to start back at square one. If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that life doesn’t always turn out the way you’d planned…sometimes it turns out better. The road is full of lots of little bumps and detours and sometimes it’s frustrating when we can’t get where we want to go as quickly as we’d like. But I’m slowly learning to enjoy the scenery along the way, because eventually, if we have patience and faith, life has a way of getting us exactly where we need to be.
I live in rural Pennsylvania, with my husband, Michael, our daughter, Evelyn, and three furbabies. I work for an Early Childhood program and have been surrounded by young children most of my adult life. I care about the planet (it’s our home) and I do what I feel is best and what works for my family. I care about living a healthy lifestyle and teaching my daughter to live her life with compassion and love. I love to cook, read, and create, and I dream of a day when I have time to do all three.
