Hello! I am so excited to be a part of Ultimate Blog Party 2014. I found out about this event just about a week ago and I was thrilled. I was a mixture of squeals of excitement and relief that I hadn’t missed out on it. That would have been a huge bummer!
UBP comes at a perfect time for me, I am a new-by blogger. I tried about a year ago and failed miserably. But a lot has changed and I jumped back in about a month ago. Blogging has been different this time around and I am LOVING using it as my creative outlet.
For those of you who are thinking what is Ultimate Blog Party?! It is a way to say who you are, link your blogs in one place and meet other bloggers. I am super excited about that last part. I want to meet more bloggers! Networking is fun, but hard. I am so glad to have this week of fun to hopefully make it a bit easier and make some new friends along the way!
Let’s get started…
My name is Beth! I have been married to Russell for almost 7 years now. I love that man, even when he mercilessly teases me to the point of insanity. Nobody can make me laugh like he does and he really does understand me better than I do myself.
These are our girls Marissa, almost 6 and Emily, who just turned 3. I LOVE being a girl mom. Half of the things in our house are pink and/or covered in glitter and I couldn’t imagine our life any other way. They bring more life and love to everyday.
I am a… nerd, knitter, runner, athlete, baker, Cardinals baseball lover, gardener, food preserver, nature enthusiast, home-schooling mama, DIY’er, classic car loving girl, NASCAR fan, and a VERY stubborn individual who can sometimes be a bit of a hypochondriac.
We are Christians. We are part of the most amazing church. I know a lot of people feel that way but, I couldn’t mean it any more.
Almost 3 years ago our home was destroyed by an F5 tornado that demolished 1/3 of our city. We got to see our church be THE church. When I reflect back on that first year of life post tornado and living in recovery mode, it was the hardest thing we have ever been through so far. I can’t imagine how much more difficult that would have been without so many people helping us along and even propping us up at times.
We are part of an amazing church.
I hope you stick around. If you would like to leave a comment, that would be great. I would love to be able to get back to you!
