a little introduction

Hey Reading Gals! I am so excited to be a part of your group, and I can't thank you enough for opening yourselves up to a lady you don't even know! So, I thought I'd take this opportunity to give you a little introduction to me, my life, and my family so you can get to know me and actually have a face to go with my posts. :) So without further ado, I present--- my life in pictures!

I grew up here:
(Portland, Oregon)

Went to college here:

And received a Bachelor's degree in this:

Married him:
(August 12, 2006)

(Portland Oregon LDS temple)

Moved here:
(Mesa, AZ)

So he could build these:

Had her:
(March 10, 2008)

And time flew like this:

Now our family looks like this:

And who could forget her?:

And we LOVE LOVE LOVE to do lots of this!!:

So that's our family! We just celebrated my husband's 26th and my 24th birthdays. I LOVE being my baby's stay-at-home mom and in my free time when she naps I sew, play piano, and of course devour every good book I can get my hands on. By the way, my husband is Eldon's (Shelli's husband) older brother. It was through Shelli's blog that I found Reading Gals, and I admitted to her that I've been secretly reading along with you for several months now. Thanks for letting me come clean. :) If anyone wants access to my private family blog, just leave me your email address in the comments. It's so wonderful to make new friends and I look forward to getting to know you all while we share our love of literature!
