I love deeply, give generously, I am a friend for life, and care immensely. Oh and of course there is a tiny bit of feisty in there too. 😉
I will cry at your wedding, hug you tightly with excitement about your new addition to your family, I will jump up and down with you when you get into your first choice college, I will hold your hand when I sense you need it, and I will make sure our time together is beyond words.
I have been married for just over 19 years and have been a mom for almost 18 years (yikes!). I have 4 children (2 of which are my rainbow babies), and I am a mom to 6 angel babies. Also, I have one spunky dog and a very prissy cat.

Oh my family...what a beautiful, chaotic, hilarious, energetic, never a dull moment family it is. We have a spread in children so we are non stop. In the nonstop I find solace, peace, inspiration, more love than I thought possible, exhaustion, and so much more. Without my family I would not be where I am today.
Oh my husband! Where do I start. He is my rock, my best friend, my strength when I cannot go on, my biggest cheerleader, and the list can go on. Travis and I meet when we were in college and our love story was in hyper-speed. :) We recently celebrated 19 years of marriage! And there is not anyone else I would want to spend this life with!
There are so many things that inspire me. However, reading bible verses really lights my fire especially when I am needing a little boost. I know God is with me in all that I do.
Taking a few minutes to enjoy a sunset is so very refreshing. It is in that moment I reflect, plan, appreciate, breathe, and sit in amazement over God's beautiful painting.
There is nothing like capturing moments with a film camera. You have to know your light and trust in your intuitions. Then you enter a darkroom to develop your film and blindly load and process moments. The smell of fixer is oddly comforting and the moment you see your image appear on the paper in the liquid is magical!
My soul is at peace when in nature. Surrounded by green, the sound our wind blowing through the trees, meadows, rushing rivers and streams, the smell of pine trees, and the moist air. One of my favorite things to do is just to sit on a rock and take in everything with every one of my senses.
I mean who cannot get inspired by a crazy out of the box product. I love finding things that someone was brave enough to design (whether it succeeded or failed). My most favorite finds are the most bizarre but yet so brilliant I wish I would have thought of it.

I can't wait to hear from you.
Grab your favorite beverage and come on over to instagram. It is a little bit of my everyday sprinkled in amongst photography, thoughts for the day, and my love of Jesus and essential oils.
