I am married to the love of my life and have three tremendous blessings: a first grader, a preschooler, and our newest addition.
I have had many amazing opportunities in my life, including having been homeschooled myself from the 2nd grade on through high school (Thanks Mom!). I also had the opportunity to get my Bachelors degree in writing and then work both full-time on college faculty for a few years, as well as part-time for A Beka Book Publishing. Right now, I’m enjoying the opportunity to be at home and begin the homeschool adventure with my children.
Fifteen Random Things about me…
- I am a “google-guru.” I love searching on Google, and I am obsessed with finding the answer to every question.
- I am also an organization-nut. No, don’t read into that. I did not say that I was organized, but rather that I like to look organized. I love file folders, notebooks, planners, anything that looks like organization.
- Journals are another love affair–gotta’ love a new notebook with all of those clean, empty lines. Must be the writer in me.
- I’m trying hard to kick a sugar addiction. The hardest part is all the sugar I like to have in my coffee—nearly ¼ of a cup. Yeah, it’s bad.
- I love to cook, hate to bake. I mean, I would rather make a whole meal than tackle a dessert. (Odd, huh? Especially considering my sugar addiction.)
- My #1 enemy to meal prep is forgetting to defrost what’s for dinner. If it won’t thaw in the microwave, it may take me months to get to that meal.
- I love to diagram sentences.
- I am totally intimidated by math.
- My husband and I enjoy watching classic black and white films.
- Speaking of my husband, we were married 6 months and one day after our first date (and I had only met him a week previous to that first date). But as far as short engagements go, my sister-in-law has me beat. She was engaged to my brother for a week.
- My favorite fiction books are Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens and Peace Like a River by Leif Enger.
- I don’t really like reading fiction. I’m way too critical. Or if I find a good one, I become obsessed and can’t break free until the story is over.
- I do like to read the end of a story first. And I also like to know how a movie is going to end. Only then do I feel that I can actually relax and enjoy the rest of the plot.
- Half full or half empty? Definitely half full. As a matter of fact, I’d probably say it was “nearly full.”
- I am a party animal. I love to make everything a party and can always find an excuse for a celebration.
