About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Six Years Ago Today

Six years ago today, it was the day before my wedding. I remember waking up and realizing that tomorrow I'm getting married! It was so hard to believe because I had told myself that I was going to be an old maid and would never get married. Not that I didn't like boys, it was just that I loved my independence a lot more. I'm so glad Mike made me change my mind!

Six years ago I was getting ready to take all my bridesmaids, my mom, and my mother-in-law to have manicures and pedicures. It was so much fun to have a morning out with all the girls! Then it was headed back to our new apartment to have a birthday party for my brother, Brandon and to feed everyone lunch. Mike and I had a quick couple hours of alone time before it was off to rehearsal at the church. Below are some pictures from our rehearsal.


  1. Look how young y'all were! :) Just teasing......you're still young! Happy Anniversary!

  2. I know! Mike was almost 26 and I was almost 23 and we thought we were old and mature enough to get married. If only we knew how immature we were....LOL
