Joey is my best friend.

We welcomed our miracle baby, Analie Alexa on November 23, 2010. She was 7 lbs of cuteness and we are so thankful for her.

We lost our first baby (who we symbolically named Samuel) the summer of 2009.

I love being a Christian, even when it’s hard.

I’ve tried IVF. Twice.

It worked. Once.

That’s how we got Analie.

I’m always willing to talk about infertility. Diagnosis: Stage 4 Endometriosis (plus a few other bonus things)

I’m live in Indiana.

I enjoy reading and going for walks in the evening.

I get my news from NPR.

Someday I want to be a guest on Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me.

I love backpacking, hiking, canoeing and survival camping.

I’m a big fan of weekends.

My bike’s name is Thunder.

I’m a youth pastor’s wife.

I dig cows.

I don’t handle stress well.

I’m not good at fishing; I talk too much.

Cooking and baking are my favorite.

I love hanging out with my girlfriends!

I’m a budding environmentalista.

I love me my Joey.

Texas is where we “came of age”.

I enjoy seeing animals and want my very own Alpaca. And Koala. And Panda.

Conservation is beautiful.

I’m a neat freak.

I like all-natural, chemical-free, environmentally-friendly products.

Green is my favorite color.
