I am a 30-something wife and mom. I married my high school sweetheart (theBOY) nine years ago, and I like him even more now than I did on our wedding day. I work outside the home full-time at a job that keeps me busy writing, editing and coordinating projects throughout the week. My three-year old daughter (bigSIS) and one-year old boy (lilBRO) keep me busy at all other times of the day!
I love to read (anything and everything), write and edit (when inspired or paid for it).
I love diet coke, peanut M&Ms, all things purple, and Jesus.
Why do I blog anonymously? Mostly because I write quite a bit about my family members – two of whom aren’t old enough to agree to being written about publicly. Also? I’m mysterious like that.
About the Blog
I started this blog in 2009 when I was 28 and pregnant with my first baby. I knew my life was about to change in ways I could never imagine. No turning back once a baby arrived. I was on the brink of real-deal adulthood. So, I decided to document the journey – because I realized I was growing from the little girl I’d always been to the woman I’ll continue to become each day for the rest of my life.
Girl Grows Up follows this journey (while celebrating my inner girlie who will likely never grow up)! Will you join me? I’ll share what I’m learning, if you promise to do the same. I love to hear from you. LOVE it.
Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
