Seven things about me... (I will make these quick!)
1. I love Jesus with all my heart & soul. I desperately want a kingdom heart & perspective. My life changed drastically after college and then took another drastic change this summer. Heartaches & all I believe suffering makes us lovely and brings us to Jesus.
2. Chris and I have a very sweet love story. It starts all the way back when I was in highschool. (No we were not highschool sweethearts....but he had his eye on me since then, smiley face). We have been through a lot together. He has given me my art ( I didn't paint professionally until I met him), he gave me my children, he gave me A Little Artsy, he gave me a love story, a new relationship with Christ, an entirely new perspective on our time here on earth.....he has given me much.
3. oh yes and that leads me to three..... I have two sweet babies (Aiden & Ainsleigh). 4 months and 22 months. They have changed my world. So much love.....oh and we want two or three more :).
4. I eat very silly things. I am addicted to kid's food...capri suns, gummy snacks, twinkies, candy...but also love strange combos....like turkey, cheese & jelly sandwiches!
5. I have never taken an art class, had my first art show in 2008 and didnt sell a painting until I met Chris. So I am just a newbie at all of this!
6. I adore the beach. I would be fine living on one :).
7. A few random facts smashed into one....favorite color: mint, favorite book: "A Beautiful Offering", I have a headband obsession, I love being pregnant, someday I'd love to write a book, I have one brother (6 years younger) named Travis, we have 2 dogs (Macy & Ellie) and I love love seeing the world through creative eyes.
