About Me

Personally, I think an “About Me” page on a blog is redundant. 

If the whole blog is me writing about what I see, do and think on a regular basis, why on earth would I need to tell you about myself anywhere else? 

But since I’m a crowd follower (yeah, right), I’ll just give you an idea about who is writing all of this drivel. 

I’m Anne. I am married to a guy I had a HUGE crush on in high school. We have a lot of fun living our crazy life together. In July of 2009, we will have been on this journey for 10 years. We’ve moved 6 times, had 3 kids, and are never lacking in the adventure department. 

I am a stay at home mom to 3 of the weirdest kids you’ll ever meet, and I mean that in a good way. There’s Aidan, our 6 year old jedi space invader who loves music, imagination and anything he can build or create. Then there’s Molly, our 4 year old rockstar princess ballerina, who can read anything and can whack a baseball pretty well, too. Finally, and we mean finally, there’s Paisley. She’s our little blond powerhouse of energy who mixes giggles and demands so well that she’s got us all working for her, we just don’t know it yet. 

I grew up in Jackson, MS. I had a wonderful, stable, happy home with two really cool parents who let me be me. I actually learned a lot from my parents and I’m so glad God put me there with them. 

My faith is the most important thing about me. I love my Lord, and desire to put him first in every area of my life. I want my faith to be what people see in me first. I want my faith to be what sustains me in every situation, good or bad. I believe Jesus is God’s son and came here to live a sinless life and then was falsely accused and crucified. I believe he took all the sins of the world (just mine would be innumerable) upon himself when he died. He paid this price, he became sin himself, so that we could be forgiven and have an opportunity to go straight to God through Christ if we choose to. He did it all because God loves us so much. After he died, he rose again 3 days later and lives today. I know he’s alive because I’ve seen so much evidence of his work in my life and in the lives of people I love. It’s a choice, and it’s the best one I’ve ever made. I follow him because it makes sense to me, and truthfully, it doesn’t make sense not to. 

So if that’s the most important thing about me, here are a few runners-up on my “love” list:

Music. It’s what makes me “me”, and not just a mom. I have a soundtrack to my life playing in my head constantly. 
Books. I have been a voracious reader since I was small. I love libraries, because I’m cheap.
Clothes. I don’t want to sound shallow, but I seriously love clothes. I’m a Gap girl, and want to be buried in 2 of their tank tops one day. Just make sure the colors look cute together.
Laughter. I love people that can bring the funny. I need funny friends in my life. I love that feeling of laughing so hard that I can’t stop and then tears start running down my face.
Travel. I haven’t been out of the country yet. I need to go. But I love a road trip. Michael and I have been on several that are always fun. I love doing outdoor things like skiing, rafting, amusement parks, etc. I’m not really outdoorsy, but I love the outdoors, if that makes sense.
People. Being around people gives me energy. I’m a classic extrovert. I need social interaction. Sometimes, when I get time alone, I like to just walk around a store, just because being near other people makes me happy. God made me friendly, so if I go a long time and don’t speak to anyone but the kids, I start to feel like I’m going crazy.

That’s enough about me. I probably could sum all this up and say, what you see is what you get. I hate pretense, and you won’t get any from me. So enjoy the blog, if you don’t already. Leave a comment and let’s be friends.
