If nothing else describes me you could always call me honest. I have never liked lying and never really found a use for it.. I have always said that if you are doing something that you don't want others to know about.. then you shouldn't be doing it. Don't expect me to lie for you or to stick around if you lie to me.

I am a best friend... For my friends who really get to know me, they know I would drop everything to be there for them. I have stopped everything and flown to Florida just to spend time with my friend before because I felt she needed me. I have given my time and money to support my friends when I know they needed it.

I am always here for emotional support and advice as long as you want the truth. DO not ask me for my opinion if you do not want me to tell you the truth. Don't get me wrong, I will try my best to be nice about it.. but at the end of the day to me, it always feels better to know I told the truth.

I have an AA in Business, a certificate in Applied Sociology, and a Bachelors in Psychology. I have always enjoyed helping people and I feel counseling is one of my callings. I plan to finish my masters after my children all start school so that I may pursue that dream.

I have been taking pictures for as long as I can remember. I have always enjoyed photography and started doing it professionally in 2004. I have had many many clients and everyday I learn new techniques. I love photography so much because I love memories and I have a bad one. I have a hard time remembering the past but pictures explain everything.. they can take you back to each moment in your life and you will know exactly where you were, what you were thinking, and what was going on at that moment in time. I take pictures so that I will never forget.. I became a photographer so that my clients will never forget the beauty that expounds within everyones lives..

I met my other half in 2002 and he quickly became the love of my life. When I say my other half I mean that.. He is what makes me a whole person. We don't always agree or get along.. but our love has grown and pushes us to grow with each other as well. I never want to live without him. I already told him that I have to die first for that reason.. ;)

I have 3 great kids that are complete handfuls almost all the time but I love them with everything that I am. I try to do what is best for them and I enjoy being able to stay home with them so that the do not have to go to daycare. I feel that being a stay at home mom is the best gift I could have given to them. I know the difference because I used to be a working mom. When my oldest was young I worked. I worked all the way up until he started school and Kris joined the Navy.
My two youngest have so much more knowledge than my oldest did at their age and I know that is because I was able to stay home and give it to them.

There is so much more to me than just these few paragraphs... but that is what reading my blog is for.. enjoy getting to know me through my posts.. and as always, if you would like to know something, just ask.
