My very favorite thing in the world is spending time with my family. I once read a quote that said, "families of four kids are the happiest." It's certinaly been an adventure so far, but I'm so glad to be along for the ride. We love going on spontaneous trips together whether it is to a local ice cream eatery, the park, to the beach or the mountains - we LOVE to create memories. Besides, children only have one childhood. <3

kind words, sincerity, fresh air, books to read, a cozy bed, calm waters, sunshine, tomatoes, flowers in the spring, cool breeze in the fall, smiles + laughter, picnics, windows down + music up, nature, green tea.
I knew my purpose from a young age was to serve others. Originally, I thought I'd be a teacher but life drove me in a different direction when I was 16. Becoming a nurse has been the most rewarding and fulfilling experience. I've heard incredible stories, met amazing people, cried happy and sad tears, and I've seen miracles happen.
