Wife+Mom+Everything Else

W I F E 

Josh (my husband) and I got married November 16th, 2012 in the Salt Lake Temple.
Our humble beginnings as a couple were very eye-opening and strengthening to our relationship.  We have learned to lean on each other and keep a continuous flow of communication with one another. Our relationship is not perfect but we have definitely grown as adults, both in our maturity and in our love.
Even though we have only been married for about 4 years, the life challenges have hit us hard. Throughout the years we have experienced everything from losing a loved one, to bringing life into this world; from not having a penny to our name to.... well we are still pretty low on the cash... but the point is that throughout the years, I have begun to understand what my role as a wife should be. As a wife, I am  a supporter, chief, listener, part time provider (while Josh finishes school) and lover. Does that mean I am always all of the above? lol not at all.  


December 2014 I found out I was pregnant. I had my baby boy, Kai. Experiencing the creation of life,while causing so much discomfort and pain, was and it is the most gratifying and joyful experience.
Being a first-time mom I have made mistakes. I have been scared and troubled but I can say that being a mommy has changed my outlook on life. Watching my son learn, explore and discover the world for the very first time is dawning. The simplicity of things brings the greatest joy to his face and brings an abundance of happiness in our lives.
A year is not nearly enough to be considered an expert in motherhood,  but the journey is full of life changing experiences and A LOT of dirty diapers.

E V E R Y T H I N G else

Aside from being a wife and a mother I have the opportunity to continue my career as an educator and family/ student advocate. While working for the district in the after school programs and attending an online graduate school, I have found other hobbies to keep, somewhat, of a balance in my life.
Some of my biggest hobbies are Crossfit and weightlifting, which has now become a family affair. These physical activities have become a great part of my journey to find self-confidence and appreciation of myself. 
Life, busy and full of imperfection. Here is mine as a Wife+mom+ everything else.
