A Little About Me

Hey there! I'm so glad you found my little blog. :)

About me...  Hmmm....

I'm in my 20's and live near Portland, OR. I grew up in Southern California, and am not loving this Oregon rain. Aside from the rain, it's a wonderful place. Above anything else, I am a mommy. I love spending time with my daughter. We laugh, we play, we run, we dance, we sing, we get crafty and I love every single moment of it. I am a little bit of a helicopter mom, but I'm trying to be better about that! It's pretty amazing to have this little person that you made and get to watch grow. Life is such a miracle!

Being a mom isn't all I do... I also own a small preschool and am a full time student. I love kids! There are so many reasons why I love being a preschool teacher. If you want to read more you can read my post about it. :) I am going to school to get my bachelor's degree in Psychology and English with a minor in Art. I love school, so it has been a blast. I am the type of person who enjoys being crazy busy, so my schedule works well for me.

I am engaged to a great guy who showed me that not all men are the same. He is so supportive of me in everything I do. I am a lucky girl. (fyi: this blog might go all wedding planner on you very soon!)

I am a happy person. I try to see the bright side and I know that there is always a rainbow after the rain (I LOVE RAINBOWS!!). I love music and art and try to surround myself with as much of them as possible. I am a bit of a nerd and am awkward in social situations (blogging is perfect for me because you don't get to see that, haha). I am silly and I sing random songs that I make up. I strive to be the best I can at everything I do, and so far I think I'm doing okay....

This blog is about my adventures as a mommy: from fun experiences, to cooking, to crafts, to juggling my business, to what I do for me, and all the randomness in between. Above all, this blog is about enjoying this life as a mother and cherishing every moment.

My 7 year old daughter is my whole world. She is the sunshine of my life and my reason for living.

I am engaged to an amazing guy. He puts up with all of my craziness. :)
