I'm a passionate creative woman, and I am desperately in love with and happily married to my Air Force husband. I am a mommy of 2, and will spend my life loving my children and husband with every breath that I take. I spend my days shopping, cooking, blogging, sewing, dancing and singing with my daughter, and seeing the world through my autistic son's eyes- and a beautiful world it is! I have a Bachelor's degree in English - from UC Davis, and I am 2 classes shy of my Master's Degree in Education- to teach Elementary school. I'm currently writing a book about my experience as a mommy of a boy with autism. I live life to the fullest, surround my self in pink, eat a lot of chocolate, drink red-bull, and wear my heart on my sleeve!
