The Girl Behind the Blog

Hi y'all! I'm Tami. Thanks for stopping by! Do you want to know a little more about me?

Well grab a cup of coffee and pull up a comfy chair because I like to talk a lot ... maybe a little too much sometimes. If you stick around for any length of time you will find that out very quickly. 

Anyway, let me get to the point.

I'm a Texas girl, born and raised. But a little something called the USMC has had me living away from my beloved home state for over 15 years now. First in North Carolina, then in Africa (YES- Africa!!) and then the Middle East. After three years overseas, we lived in sunny San Diego for another 3. We are finally back where we started our married life together: North Carolina. We've been back just under a year and we are loving it. 

I married the love of my life (and high school sweetheart) at the tender age of 19. Yes, yes I know. I was super young. But guess what? Here we are 15 later and we are still going strong! 
We have two beautiful daughters, Emerson and Adelyn. Emerson is 5 and in Kindergarten. She's tenderhearted, loves to draw, and she has a smile that will light up a room. 
Adelyn is 3 and she is our spitfire. She gets into everything and can't leave a room without making a mess but man she can make us laugh. She's a cuddle bug and a wild child rolled into one.
I've been a stay at home mom since Emerson was born and it has been such a blessing to our family.  It's definitely not always easy but I'm so thankful for the time I've had with my sweet girls. Big changes are happening for our family in 2017 and I can't wait to share more about that with you very soon. :) In the meantime, feel free to take a look around and learn more about me and my sweet little family.

Found your blog through 'From Mrs to Mama' and I am excited to follow. My husband and I currently run a educational non-profit in the Dominican Republic so I can relate to life as an expat.... and mama to a little girl as our little one is 6 1/2 months and the light of our lives! :)

You have a beautiful family!!

Hi Tami!
I found you today through Beth at My Life More Abundant, and I'm so excited to 'meet' you :)
My hubs and I also lived in Africa (yes, Africa ;) for a year and a half, and plan to move back full time. It's always nice to get to know other Jesus lovin mamas who know what it's like to live away from home and make a new home in a place very different from all things familiar.
We have a little boy who just turned one (even though I keep calling him my baby, I don't think he qualifies at that at 32lbs, haha :) Your daughter is beautiful!!!
Anyway, I'm really looking forward to following along and getting to know you more!
