Although this blog is dedicated to this time in my life since my daughter went to heaven, I wanted to also let you know a little more about myself. I also have a three year old son named John and a 4 month old little girl named Gia and hopefully more to come.
I come from a family of five girls and one boy. I am second in line. I am originally from Santa Cruz, CA. I went to college in South Bend, IN and then moved to Arizona because I got married to Phillip.
I love chocolate but dislike chocolate cake. I don't like shopping but I love the store Anthropologie. My family knows it's my favorite. So once a year because my birthday and Christmas are close together, I get gift cards and I go crazy in their big sale section as they get rid of many things for the upcoming year. I scored big time this past January!
My three favorite movies are "The Notebook", "Pride and Prejudice," and incidentally "Fools Rush In." They are comfort movies to me.
I love Notre Dame football even though they have been a disgrace the past few years. I studied in Rome in college and love everything Italian. It sparked my love for art history and gelato.
I get cranky and will even form tears if I get too hungry. My husband's most used line to me is, "Calm down." He even uses it when I am calm just out of habit. We are very much in love even though we have known each other for 15 years, married for 6 1\2.
My kitchen is my favorite place in my house. It's colorful and happy. I do most home projects myself. I love crafts, construction, woodworking, painting, and I'll sew if I have to.
I've wanted a Yorkie for years now and am just waiting until I can afford one.
I love children but not pregnancy.
I love being home but get excited to go out too.
I ran one 10K, but prefer other means of exercise.
I do not have the type A personality but I like to reach goals I set for myself. Well, if I think of anything else. I 'll let you know.
