I love. Not the kind that is written about in sappy romances, or the kind that is included on the classy looking wall decor “Live, laugh, love.” I love in the sometimes-painful-overwhelming-heart-bursting kind of way. I love life, I love God, I love my husband and my family and friends. I love the smell of flowers in bloom, a thunderstorm, and the feeling of freedom. I love to laugh, not the laugh of cleverness but the laugh that comes from too many good stories shared among friends. The kind of laugh I share with my husband when we laugh about the same thing for the 20th time, and it’s still funny. I love food. I love the emotions that get shared over dinners, the joy on peoples faces when they connect over a recipe or a hidden ingredient.

I’m passionate about things I believe in and a faithful and trustworthy friend. These are some of my stories, my experiences.

I invite you to take a journey with me as I learn & grow.
