|the twins at their first horse competition|
I have four youngin's. Twin girls, a boy, and then my baby girl. They were all born within five years of each other. Needless to say, I stay busy. I love being a mom & am so appreciative that I get to stay home to enjoy every minute of their precious "little" years.
I run my own small wedding venue business on my family's ranch and a small photography business. Photography has been my hobby since high school. I took some photo classes in college, but that was before the age of digital cameras. Put me in a dark room & I'm golden, yep, I can roll actual film & develop it. Unfortunately these skills have become little obsolete & I have enjoyed teaching myself the digital camera. I love photographing weddings, portraits, special events... and my children.
I have a college degree in Art Education. I taught for a short bit, then worked at our church, & then I had babies. A lot of babies. So I stay home to raise them, the best job in the world. But I continue to create art. Whether it be painting, cooking, decorating, cutting my son's hair, blogging, or taking pictures I love creating! As my family grew I had to become more fond of cooking. I had always cooked from a young age for my family & ranch workers that got suckered into working on our place for a summer. But I had never really enjoyed cooking. I was blessed to have a mother whose hobby is cooking, so I had a good knowledge base. Int the last few years I have really fallen in love with cooking. I would say it is my major creative outlet these days.

So that's me in a nutshell. I hope you enjoy this happy little nest and are inspired to create & love life.
