I'm starting a new "Getting to Know You" feature on my blog.  I thought I would start with me :)

Home life (Family, pets, etc.):  I've been married to my husband, Doug, for 13 years.  We have two daughters, Kaylee (11) and Laken (6).  We live in a ranch-style house in our hometown.  We have 2 dogs.  Lilah is a Black Lab and Jasmine is a York-a-Pom.  We also have a bird and 3 rabbits.  My Mom is one of my very best friends and I see her almost everyday.  She and my Dad are very present in our lives.  I have 1 brother, Dan, who is 18 months older than me.  He lived just across town.  We're also very active in our Church.  I strive to be pleasing in God's sight.

Occupation:  I am a stay-at-home-wife/mom.  I do have an etsy shop to try to make some extra spending money but it has been a bit slow this month.
Hobbies that you enjoy:  I enjoy crocheting, sewing, baking, cooking, reading and walking.  I also love to watch my daughter play sports.  Softball season will be starting soon!

Favorite book:  Other than the Bible, Pride and Prejudice or Little Women
Favorite food:  Pizza
Go-to beverage of choice:  Ovaltine, Sunny D, and Dr. Pepper.
Favorite Outfit:  Comfy pants, with a favorite t-shirt.
Favorite Accessory:   My pearl necklace that my hubby got for me at Epcot-Japan.  I got to pick out the oyster and be surprised at the pearl!  So fun!

What's your blog/website(s)?  Well, you're obviously at my blog.  My etsy site is:

Why do you blog/write? What do you hope to accomplish with blogging/writing?  Blogging gives me a creative outlet and also helps me to find a community to socialize with.  It can be a bit hard to find community when being a SAHW-M.  It also helps me with my anxiety/depression to have a daily routine and socialize as well as being a journal of sorts.

What's the latest goings-on that you would want others to know about?  I always have a book giveaway going.  You can see my current giveaways on the top sidebar.  Please feel free to enter.  I've also added quite a few new items to my etsy shop.  Scarves, shawls, aprons etc, etc, etc,.

Any words of encouragement or wisdom to impart?  

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.  James 1:12
