About Me

A little about me:
I'm married to one super awesome man and we've got four amazing kiddos. We might be crazy, but we love it, for sure!
I'm also a high school teacher, football wife (or widow...during football season), Christ follower, daughter, sister, friend, runner, reader, sports watcher and coffee drinker.
I'm not much of an expert at anything, but I really enjoy a lot of things. I enjoy healthy eating, cooking, keeping my house clean & organized (but let's be honest, especially in the summer, this is a very difficult task), decorating, shopping/fashion, creating lists and doing home improvement projects. I also love to travel, throw parties, hang out with girlfriends, and take pictures. Mostly of my kiddos. I'm no professional, but I really do love it!
If there is anything you ever want to know about me or something you'd like me to write about, just comment or email me! The more ideas the better. I'm already looking forward to this new journey.....

I'd love to hear from you! Please email me at: familiarjoy@yahoo.com

  1. So great to meet a new blogging friend! I'm loving catching up with yours. Now I really want to do a stitch fix box. One of my best friends has done it a couple of times and gotten really good stuff but I haven't yet.

  2. Hi Claire! Thanks for stopping by. And yes, you should definitely try out Stitch Fix! There's not much to lose, because your $20 gets applied toward any item you purchase. Let me know if you try it out!

  3. How about a few tips on things grandparents can do with kids during the rainy season. Include some activities at home, as well as a few around the area!

    1. That's a great idea! Look for a post coming in the near future. =)
