About Us

Hi, and thanks for stopping by!

I am a stay-at-home Mom to three wonderful kids and a dedicated wife to my husband, Tom, who is a professional Home Inspector.  I made the choice to be a stay-at-home Mom later in life, after a dynamic career in Interior Design (namely kitchen and bath design).  While I do miss the creative aspects of my former career, I am wholly committed to raising the best kids…ever.  Not an easy task, let me tell you.  BUT it so worthwhile and very rewarding.  I love seeing the crazy things my kids do and say, and they are growing into such amazing little people…I am honored to be able to witness this on a daily basis.

Now about the fam…

Me and my husband Tom
We married in November of 2005 right here in Colorado.  Tom was in both the Navy (a submariner no less!) and in the Army National Guard.  He served a year in Iraq prior to our marriage and promptly got out of the military to pursue his home inspection business.
These are the kids, C ,E , and P.
{We have opted to keep their names private since this blog is public}
About-CC is our first-born.  We adopted him from Hungary in 2007 when he was 3 years old.  He had been an orphan since 2 weeks of age and, due to a heart defect, considered “undesirable” in Hungary.  We had successful heart surgery to repair a 2cm hole between his left and right atriums in 2008.  However, at age 10, C passed away from congenital heart failure.  Our hearts are broken and we miss him every hour of every day.  We look forward to our grand reunion in Heaven someday!!


E is our baby girl and is such a joy!  She actually was a surprise to us as we (unknowingly) became pregnant right before traveling to Hungary for the finalization of C’s adoption.  E definitely has a stubborn and defiant side, but she’s also such a sweetheart and loves to be the “princess”.

P is our oldest child who we adopted from Latvia in 2013.  He is such a character!  He makes us laugh constantly and has a great heart.  He’s been an amazing addition to our family and we can’t imagine life without him.

 And, last but not least, are our dogs Argish & Petunia.  They round each other out being a German Shepherd and Basset Hound…the differences are quite comedic, actually. :)
