So who am I?
Well, THAT’s a wild story!
I’m a quirky SoCal girl who spent eight years in middle TN and then relocated to St Louis in August 2015. I’m a forty-year-young adoptive mom of my hot hubby’s five (now) BIG kids from his first marriage. They were mostly little when we mutually rocked each other’s world back in 2003 and are now ages 18-24. CRAZY! Aren’t they gorgeous?
I was aaaaall about me (B.C.- before Craig) but quickly became all about my new family (as it should be) and easily got myself completely lost in the process. Becoming a full-time mom to five at 27 was rough and messy, for sure…. And don’t even get me started about how fun it was to have five teens at the same time with a traveling husband. I’m super thankful (and shocked) we all survived.. and loved each other ridiculously through it all!
Moving to St Louis has been wonderful and hard and great and miserable. I LOVE it here, but the journey has been rough as each aspect of my life has been completely turned upside down. We have one kid still at home with us along with three sweet pooches, including Queen Luna, the littlest Great Dane. Did I mention she’s deaf AND has other special needs?
Oh yeah, there’s that, nbd.
I love people… like ridiculously love people, ALL people. That’s a huge reason why I wanted to move to the city. I love adventure and people and friends and cultures and anything FUN and different and new! I love all things llama, okapi, dogs, glitter, creative and colorful. I love to learn new things and go new places. I love a good story and I love being fancy in every day moments.
I miss my four boys (who are all being super adult-y in TN and TX) and I’m loving my time with my one girl who’s the most adult-y 18 year old I know. I love that I finally made it to a season in life where I get to take care of my hubs (Craig) and live a “newly-wed” type life at year eleven of marriage that we never had together in the beginning, starting off with five kids. He was diagnosed with MS in 2014, so we do our best to eat AIP or Wahl’s Protocol to keep his symptoms at bay.
I want to share all of that with you here on my blog.
And I want to share YOUR life with you too…
I have been a Certified Life Coach since 2011 and have helped some amazing women live their life intentionally in order to achieve and surpass their BIGGEST goals and dreams.
I love it and I’m super passionate about partnering with you to start living your very best life… NOW! Not much makes me happier than to partner alongside someone who’s ready to do things differently, be held accountable, and watch life take them to places they never even could have dreamed of going! We laugh together, we cry together…. its petty much the best and it would be an honor to walk out life with you in this season.
happy love and glitter,
