I am a…

Hoosier.
Wife.
Mother.
Sister.
Friend.
Runner.
Teacher.
Fitness Enthusiast.
Philanthropist.

I am not a blogger, in fact, this is my third attempt at a blog.  Third time is a charm, right?  So, here I am, I make no promises.  This is my little corner, where I write what I feel, about the people I love, the things that make me struggle and the things that give me a burning passion:

  • helping my family live God’s way
  • Showing love to each other and to others
  • creating a healthy life for myself and my family: physically and emotionally
  • ensuring my daughter grows to know the true meaning of confidence
  • education in all shapes and forms
  • empowering others to set a fit example for their children

I have been married for four years to my husband, Josh and we have a one-year-old daughter, Claire who was born in September of 2012.  Claire brings us more happiness than we ever imagined.  We also have an energetic labradoodle, Bailey (named after the IU basketball great, Damon Bailey).

I was a teacher for 6 years and then took a year off to stay-at-home with our sweet daughter, Claire.  After a year, I resigned and low and behold, 3 weeks after my resignation I was talked-in to going back to work part-time.  So, now I am currently teach Pre-K part time.  Fifth grade to Pre-K, am I crazy?  YES!  Have I learned a lot?  YES!

 In addition, after 2 years, I just graduated from Butler University with my Masters in School Administration.  Do I some day want to be a school administrator?  Maybe, if the perfect position comes along and I believe the right opportunity will come along for our family in God’s time.

I also teach group fitness classes at a local gym and have been for 4.5 years.  I love empowering people to reach their fitness goals, better themselves and set an fit example for their family.

My husband and I have taken on a new property adventure.  We are currently renovating our first investment property, a distressed home that we will live in for an unknown period of time while renting out our current home (our first home).

This is me, this is my life… I hope you will follow me on this journey.
