I’m married to a strapping man in uniform who serves in the U.S. Air Force. His name is Daniel. We met in college at a Gun Club, because like any good southern couple, that is where romances are made. We shot our way into each other’s hearts (pun very much intended) and said our vows in 2008. He commissioned in the United States Air Force the day before our wedding and our lives have been
overseen by Uncle Sam ever since. The military life is an uncertain one, but it is filled with great adventures, friendships, and joy. We are beyond blessed to serve alongside some of the greatest men and women in our country.
We play the role of Mom & Dad to three wild, rambunctious, and spirited boys - Britton (7) and Beckett (5) and Boone (1). Britton has been preparing for the NFL since he
was born and is the top seven-year-old linebacker recruit in the country. This trait doesn’t always serve him well during first impressions since “introductory pushing”
isn’t acceptable behavior in civilized circles. However, Britton’s physicality is paired with an unbelievable memory and an uncanny sense of humor that will leave people laughing (or justifiably offended). He is a fun one to play with, but a tough one to parent, dear friends. Beckett is my precious, but fiery, little babe. He’s always down for a snuggle, but will throw an Oscar-worthy fit when he doesn’t get his way. Boone is the most durable baby to ever meet this earth. He is undoubtedly the best gift I've ever given his older brothers and they enjoy every giggle Boone gives them. Our boys are the most precious and most terrifying gifts God has ever given us, but we are incredibly grateful that He entrusted them to us.
In December 2015 we felt God calling us to care for orphans as James instructs us in James 1:27, and so, we became foster parents. We have cared for a number of children in our home over the last few years and are grateful for each child we've been able to serve.
We also care for two 4-legged fur babies of the canine variety, who keep all of us sane on a daily basis by doling out their unconditional love. Max and Bella are real gems.
Little college babes at the gun club. Nothing like the smell of gun powder to spark a romance.
This is my life. High-flying, big smiling, but always a little on the edge.
The always sane, aways loving, always compassionate wonder dogs.
