We live in Charlottesville, Virginia. We are grateful to be raising our babies in this amazing family-friendly small(ish) college town.
I am a Christian. My deepest emotion: fear, hope, desire or otherwise, is for my children to know God as their personal Lord and Savior.
My love is Brenden. He is supportive. He makes me laugh. He grounds me. He challenges me in my faith. He is positive and genuine. He’s so smart it makes me want to brag. He is an amazing father and husband and human. I’m so grateful my children get to grow up with HIM as their daddy. And I’m so grateful he’s mine.
When I was thinking of what to name my blog I decided on Momma Much with a “?” At the end. Like “walk much???” Because even though I do this mom thing every. single. day. I still fall on my face a lot.
But you know what? I don’t have to walk perfectly and not fall. I don’t have to mother perfectly and not fail. There’s a lot of peace in that for me… It frees me up to live and love and be happy. So I’m just “momma much.” Some days with a lot more “???” than others.
I’m really really really excited to write. Even writing this sentence makes me happy. Lots of things mixed up together fill up my cup but this is an oldie and goodie for me. We all need hobbies/pursuits/whimseys outside of the day to day schlepping (isn’t that a great word??) to keep us full to overflowing.
I cook all the time. And LOVE trying new recipes. I appreciate what healthy whole food does for the body and soul so I make it a huge priority. We eat mostly paleo. When I say *we* I mean Brenden and I. The kids are a work in progress. That’s a story for another day.
