A Little bit about me.
I am a mother of four amazing children, two daughters and two sons. (Ages 19-9.) I have been married 26 yrs to my best friend and husband Nic. I love animals and have adopted one cat, and a old English Sheep dog and 4 rabbits. I have always had a great love and appreciation for children. I truly enjoy everything about them. I am a part time photographer and enjoy capturing my children’s lives on film. We love our community and enjoy connecting with others. We are an active and close family that often travels in the summer to our daughter's fast pitch softball tournaments. We enjoy family outdoor activities which include family walks, hikes and annual camping trips. We are active in our church and neighborhood community.
