The Dirt

About Me

At the age of 21 I married my high school sweetheart. At the age of 22 I gave birth to our first daughter. The following year, I graduated college with a BSW, and found out I was pregnant with our second daughter. I’m currently a stay at home mom, who is fueled by coffee, chocolate, and wine, and surprises herself almost daily at her knack for patience and parenting.

About the Girls

Our girls are a mere 18 months apart. Isabella is well versed in sass, while Zoey gets by with some serious RBF. If you don’t know what that is, google it, and laugh (if you know her). They are both incredibly different from myself in many ways, but burn with my same fire.

About My Sweetheart

My husband and I met in high school when I was a sophomore. When I graduated and moved, we started our long distance chapter, which only ended when we married nearly four years later. We live the military lifestyle, moving often, and separating when we must. We have grown up with each other since we were kids, facing challenges and changes head on, and leaning in the only way we know how; together. He is easily one of the funniest people I know, and makes me the center of his universe while making sure I remain level headed enough to know I am not the center of the entire universe.
