My family is outstanding. I couldn't ask for a better one. I do, however, find that many of the phrases said in our household are not ones that you normally hear in public ... FOR INSTANCE ...

*HIPPO BIRDIE TWO EWE! (Yes, kinda sounds like Happy Birthday to you, and that is exactly what it means)

(Yes I know, they are a little strange ... buy hey, aren't all families strange in their own zany way?)

Now in my family, depending on who says it, it may come out with a sarcastic tone, or even a southern accent ... any way you say it, life many times will drastically give me things I want to share with others, and so I have created this blog!

Hopefully you can get to know me, my enthusiastic approach to life, my absolute LOVE of scrapbooking and papercrafting, and enjoy trying some of the same things I am passionate about! Feel free to let me know if there has been something that has changed your life! I would love to try it!

On a little more serious note, here are just a few things that have really have changed my life, and will help you to get to know me a little better!
My husband, The greatest, most supportive, and AMAZING husband I could ask for!

My Son Bryson ... 2 years it took, a miracle in our minds is what we got!

My families ... I don't think I could be more blessed!

And check back for more soon!

Hi, just found your blog from the CK announcement on Facebook, and I am devouring your blog. First, I ALWAYS SAY "it'll change your life." And, I didn't realize how much I said it, until a month ago. I put a plate of something in front of my 2 1/2 year old, dont even remember what, and i asked him "see..isn't it good?!" And he goes "yeah....but not change my wife." Or life, in adult speak. congrats on SBOY, and I'm really anxious to read your new column and blog.
