Howdy! Welcome to my brand-spankin’-new blog! If you don’t mind my asking… Are you lost? Well — since you’re here — I’ll try to make it worth your while.
I don’t lead the most exciting life, but I can say that I am rarely (if ever) bored. My name’s Jennifer and I’m a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom) to a 22-month-old beauty named Violet. She keeps me on my toes, to say the least. My husband, Dave, is an OTR (Over-the-Road) truck driver and I don’t see him as much as I would like. Therefore, most of the parenting/household responsibilities fall to me. He’s a great guy, though, and helps however he can when he is home. But I’m not all alone! My mom moved down here from Michigan last year to be near Violet and me. I thank God for her; she is a huge help. And how could I forget to mention my dog Clover? She’s a 60-lb mutt with a big heart.
I plan to use this blog to keep a record of all the “exciting” things happening in my life. I love to scrapbook and do crafty things, so that will definitely have a place here. Also, we’ve started planting seeds in our new, very large garden (wish us luck!). And I kind of volunteered myself to be in charge of a crafty project at my church this summer. Whew! Usually I’m more of a laid-back homebody who’s lucky if she gets all the housework done. This summer is going to be the busiest one yet! Stay tuned!
