For a long time, I was obsessed with having a double chin. After a long night of eating half priced appetizers at Applebees, I would wake up the next morning and literally feel the skin under my chin and count the rolls.
Until one night, I giggled at the fact that I was actually counting my chins and stressing over the roundness of my face. A healthy, in shape person who spent too much of her time worried about such an insignificant detail.
What if I started counting my blessings instead of those chins?
Thus, the blog was born. My journey to stop focusing on my weight slowly morphed into a passion to write, entertain, teach and connect.
And now, I’m a “blogger.”
Everyone says that successful blogs should be focused. A specialized voice about something specific. Style. Fashion. Hair. Teaching. Faith. Snack Food. A blog that hones in on one thing.
But that’s not me at all.
I’m a 6th year teacher and a 21st year writer (Mom says I was writing narratives at age 4). I write about teaching and faith and relationships and life. I don’t really follow any of the rules of “good bloggers” but maybe you’ll decide to stick around anyways.
Connecting with people is my favorite part of writing. Hearing from strangers (safe and non-threatening strangers) is the best. I love sharing stories about life, love and teaching- so find me and say hi 🙂

I would be nothing without the grace of God, my amazing family and ever-supportive, always willing to put me in my place, friends.
Blessings, not chins.
