I am a Rocky Mountain girl – born and raised in Colorado.

I have a very tight knit family in which I was the only girl surrounded by four boys, so I was a little spoiled.

I am tough and a little insensitive, but becoming a mother has definitely brought out a more emotional side of me that I’m still trying to get used to.

My weakness is food of any kind. I enjoy eating and cooking new things. I have a degree in culinary arts, and while I have worked extensively in the food service industry I now answer to the title “Mom.” I stay home with my two sons, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’m very fortunate to have them teach me more about myself each day.

I married my high school sweetheart. We’ve dated seven years, five were long distant, and we’ve been married one. We are apart of USAFAs 2% club. I truly have found my soulmate. He makes me a better person and is my best friend.


I have learned in my short quarter century life:

  • making God a part of your life gives you clarity, peace, and a helping hand in all you do
  • things don’t make you happy, people make you happy
  • no one person is better than anyone else
  • a smile can completely changes a persons day
  • relish in the time given, it goes by too fast
  • love is an overwhelming feeling that you should share with someone who respects you, makes you laugh, and genuinely wants you to be the best you
  • children on good days or bad days make everything even that much more special
  • don’t waste time judging and being bitter you’re only hurting yourself
  • friendships are important, but shouldn’t be hard
  • go into every new experience with an open mind and see it as an opportunity

Things that I’m trying to learn:

  • patience
  • effective time management when staying at home
  • healthier eating
  • balance between my marriage, my children, and myself
  • military lifestyle
  • budgeting
  • how to teach my children life lessons, while allowing them to remain children for as long as possible
  • how to deal with the constant feeling of whether or not I’m doing enough for my family
It’s not always pretty, but with each stumble I feel like I climb higher, and I learn more. No matter what I never have to do it alone.
