I am blessed to have a rich heritage in the gospel with many ancestors who were among the first members of the church. I live in a wonderful rural LDS community- and attend the ward I grew up in which even meets in the church house that my great grandfather helped to build.
In college I had big plans for my life, majoring in International Studies with a plan to go to law school….. Looking back on those days I have to laugh and wonder what I was thinking- My plans were interrupted when I met my prince charming in the spring of 2000- He swept me off my feet and we were married a few months later in the “Temple by the River” and after several years of prayers, tears and lots of waiting “Buddy Bear” joined our family in 2007 and is now a rambunctious little toddler.
I love all things crafty- with my all time favorite being digital scrapbooking. I also love to garden although I often feel like I’m raising better weeds than vegetables. In what is left of my not so spare time I also like to camp, 4-wheel, read, take pictures, blog and take naps.
I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to be a SAHM it is full of challenges and hard work and the payout is sort of like one of those TV commercials:
Changing yet another dirty diaper $0
Watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse…. AGAIN $0
No more than 4 hours straight of sleep $0
Cleaning strained carrots off of the ceiling fan $0
Your little one’s face covered in chocolate saying “Luv You Mom” = Priceless
To me it’s those little milk-chocolate moments that make it all worth it and no matter our circumstance I believe that we can all find those “sweet” moments in our lives- that’s why I picked the name Milk-Chocolate Molly….. and also because let’s face it…. who doesn’t love chocolate?
