This is me.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014



This is me. A dog mom, jean wearing, t-shirt reppin' teacher who comes home everyday smelling of 5th grade stench and clothed in random marker marks.

This is me. Exhausted everyday from hearing my name 1,000+ times, yet so humble that, by my presence, I may change one life.

This is me. A wife who makes gourmet leftovers for dinner and watches endless hours of football games just so she can have some time with her husband.

This is me. A woman who prefers her most flashy accessory to be her lanyard holding her school badge, and her wedding ring. Big jewelry and running around with students is not an ideal combination.

This is me. My dates with my husband are every morning at the gym. I never knew that starting the day at 4:40am could lead to me being a happy camper, but I've come to cherish that hour we get together. Believe me, I never thought I would/could actually get up that early, but after some time now, it is proving to be my favorite part of the day.

This is me. A girl who loves her family, God, good food, and a simple life.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
