We’re excited to have you here! Here is a little about us:
I wear a lot of hats and although things can get a little crazy, I love it! I am a wife, mother, sister, friend, writer, and athlete. Growing up, I was a nerd, loving nothing more than to curl up with a good book. I also loved playing sports and spent many summer days on a softball field. After playing in college back east, then playing and traveling in Europe, I served an LDS Mission to Washington D.C. South. I left a piece of my heart in those three pieces and can’t wait to take our growing family to visit someday.
Although later than I had planned, I married Max when I was 25. We started trying for kids the year after and found it to be more difficult than we could have imagined. After 18 months, we were blessed with our fun, energetic son. It was after that I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome or PCOS. Finding this out made things a little easier to understand as we struggled to get our next child. After a miscarriage and several more months, we were shocked to find out we were going to add triplets to our family.
And so here we are, working to better our marriage and build our family one day at a time. Although this blog started out about crafts and DIY projects, my true passion is writing and uplifting those in similar circumstances as my own. We hope to help you better your life and marriage through the things we share!
Most of my life has been spent doing construction with my dad and those experiences have shown me how important our family relationships are. I played hockey, football and lacrosse in high school, served and LDS Mission to the Czech Republic and found the love of my life after going on at least 70 first dates. You read that right. When I met my date, I had two options for what we would do. One was “roping the dummy”, which is a plastic steer head stuck into a bale of hay, and the other was a fun activity. If I knew the date wouldn’t go anywhere, we roped the dummy and got a chocolate milk. The ladies loved it and I got through a date on the cheap!
I love being a father and although we lack sleep and sanity sometimes with three little ones, there’s nothing I want more than to hang out with them. We aren’t perfect by any means but want to share things we’ve learned along our marriage and parenting journey!
