Moi ~ Daughter, Wife, Mother, Friend. But that sounds more like a tombstone than a "getting to know you" page! Friends, (that's you) I just really enjoy writing. It's therapeutic. I get joy from sharing my heart and using my humor to convey truth and real life. And to be honest, I don't know about you but my life isn't always pretty to look at. Inside or out. I have a wonderful husband and two fantastic kids, but we're far from perfect. And often what's on the inside is what needs the most work anyway. With God's help (and a lot of it) I'm striving towards being a better version of me, all the time. This is just a little place for me to work some of that out.
I love having you visit!
Keira Joy Xi ~ She's the baby and this is what I want to say about my beautiful daughter: she is PURE joy. I mean, her name could not be more perfect for her. It means "dark haired, joyful, beauty". Now I ask you! She is funny, witty, spunky, sassy, tender, caring, affectionate, and pretty much AWESOME. Just look up "hoot-a-nanny" in the dictionary. You will find this exact photo there. Also under the word "awesome". And "lovely". She makes her Daddy's and my heart go pitter-patter daily. She also says things like "hank you!" and "criminy" and "awesome blossom", which capture the overall adoration of basically every single person she has ever met. I'm not even kidding...
Quint ~ He's my oldest and he's the fifth. No, I mean it - like literally has his Daddy's name and he's the fifth one, so it's all "V" at the end of his regal name and all that stuff. Quint. And he's ALL boy, friends. Loves sports, and sports...and he loves him some sports. Or Avengers. He's got a MEGA-WATT smile that would have you promising all sorts of crazy to him. And when he puts his arms around your neck and plants a smooch on your cheek? Yeah, that's what they call PUTTY. As in, his Daddy and I have NO LIMIT of putty we will turn into when this handsome, wonderful, amazing and clever boy puts me in his grasp and whispers "Hello, beautiful Mommy" in my ear....(swoon).
