About Me

Wife to an amazing, thoughtful, loving man. Mother to a fiesty 2 year old boy, that definietly lives by the definition of a boy. Rough and tumble mixed with loving and kind. Mother to an angel too perfect for this world. Enneagram 9, learning more about me and growing along side my babies. I love learning, reading, and healthy living to a point, I do love my chocolate and drink way more coffee than is normal. I also love essential oils, DYI crafts and journals.
