Fortunate Gal

Mike and I in our favorite town, Nashville, TN


Welcome to my blog!  I started this blog in 2011 just shortly after meeting the love of my life.  I figured some day our kiddos would be dying to know about how we met and all that happened before them and what better way than to log it on my laptop.  My guy and I met in August 2010 at a tractor pull.  After going through many frogs I finally had found my prince and it was certainly when I least expected it. 

I’m a teacher and love my job dearly.  I love having a job with weekends and summers off.  I also enjoy spending time with my family.  I have two adorable nephews and one beautiful sassy niece.  My brother and sister are near and dear to my heart, and of course my pops too.  I miss my momma daily and will probably always be sad she never got to meet the wonderful man that is now my best friend. 

The oldest little….Colton

The littlest littles…Brody and Shai

My family

On my blog you will find our daily love stories (and struggles), my latest obsession with turquoise and, my craziness for cowboy boots of every shape, size, and color, some of my favorite recipes with crappy photos of the finished product, and probably a bit about dealing with the loss of a parent because quite frankly it’s part of who I am.
