Spending time with my family and friends. I love playing and being silly with my kids. I enjoy reading, doing puzzles, yoga, and beach walks.
Prayer. Practicing daily gratitude.
Harry Potter. I love to get lost in a fantasy world and am completely engrossed in the story and the characters.
My Church. I love my church community where my family and I grow in our faith and our love of Jesus. I love the community outreach that our church facilities for us to participate in to better serve the town I live in.
Snuggling with my little boys at the end of the day. Connecting with my husband after our kids are asleep about how we are, how our day has been, and watching a show together. I recharge by spending time with friends.
We just got a new puppy and his name is Willie! He is only 12 weeks old so each day getting to know him and love him has been very exciting for our family.
