Hi, I am Beth.
Welcome to my Blog. The happy little place where I am able to be me. I like to post about the adventures that I have with my beautiful girls and husband, aka life. I am an imperfect follower of Christ, a first year homeschooling mom, a lover of baking, cooking… and eating, a crafter, an athlete, a car girl and a penny pinching thrifty shopper. I always like to refer to myself as a jack of all trades, ace of none kind of gal.
I was married to my husband Russ on August 18th, 2007
We didn’t have the frilly fancy wedding, more like an elopement in a popular tourist town.
We welcomed Marissa Renea into this world on June 17th, 2008
After the birth of Marissa I continued working. We just couldn’t swing living on one income at that time as much as we wanted to.
Days after Marissa’s second birthday….
We immediately planned for me to not return to work after the birth of our next child. So we saved and pinched every penny we could to make it happen!
Emily Elizabeth came into this world on February 21, 2011
Life was going great! I was at home with our girls living my dream job.
On Sunday May 22, 2011 our life had a drastic change that would forever change our hearts. Our city was devastated by a massive F-5 tornado and our home was destroyed along with 1/3 of our town. We moved in with my husbands parents, then into a rental while we put our life back together.
In April of 2012 almost one year later we got to move in!
That next year was a whirlwind, the girls kept growing faster and faster. And, we tackled project after project to make our house a home.
So, in the fall of 2013 we started Kindergarten at home.
We are currently wrapping up our first year of home school, and we love it. We know that it was the best choice for us.
Even through all of the unexpected events and plans getting changed we know that we have never once been alone. We have a loving, patient and gracious God who is pursuing us always and has never once left us.
We are blessed.
