  • I have one daughter in college
  • I've been married to the love of my life for almost 15 years
  • I live in the very boring state of Illinois
  • because of the previous entry, I love to travel
  • I love photography
  • Jesus is my Savior
  • my favorite place to be is outside
  • I love playing with graphic design
  • summer is my favorite season
  • I type about 93 words per minute
  • I love sleep
  • Thus, I am not a morning person
  • Scrapbooking is awesome!
  • Rubber stamping is a fun hobby
  • I just read the Bible cover to cover in 90 days! Super excited about that!!

  2. Wow, cover to cover in 90 days, that is wonderful. I started Jan., 1st and I am still in Leviticus. I so love being outside too, cannot wait till it warms up some more. And, as far as eating out, I would so do it all of the time, but oh twell, my budget just won't allow it. Came upon your blog because of the UBP. Been having a blast finding new blogs.

  15. I’m a new follower from UBP11. I just wanted to say hello. Please stop by my blog and check out my giveaways.


  16. Hi! I'm stopping by from the UBP - trying to visit all on the link for Christian blogs by the end of the day (but I'm not going straight down the list so I still have quite a few to go!). I'm #73 (Being Made New - http://tinahollenbeck.blogspot.com) - I'm also a mom of girls like you...and I'm in WI so you "hosted" my state's 14 Democrat senators for a while last month, lol. :^) I hope you might be able to pop in at my place sometime soon.


I am so glad you that you stopped by today! What's on your mind?
