i was born & raised in salt lake city, utah. at 16 i became a single mother. having alanna truly changed my life -sometimes the worst situations end up being the best. at 24 i met danny, six months later we were married & alanna and i moved to north carolina. in 2008, after eleven years, i became a new mom again. life with a toddler & a teenager is totally crazy, but i wouldn't trade it for anything. these are some bits & pieces from our home to yours.
"hurt no living thing: ladybird, nor butterfly, nor moth with dusty wing, nor cricket chirping cheerily, nor grasshopper so light of leap, nor dancing gnat, nor beetle fat, nor harmless worms that creep." -christina rossetti
this is my online scrapbook of sorts, where i save & share little bits of our day-to-day. i originally started this for my mother & family who live 2,000+ miles away, but have met some wonderful people along the way. please say hello, & thanks for visiting!
