I am a 34 year old mom, of a 4 year old, from Texas. I love to read, craft, cook, and be with my family. Being a mom is the most wonderful and terrifying thing in my opinion, because there is no book telling how to be a mother. So I am learning each day as I go. I want to share what I have learned with other mothers and ladies. I try to live life the best and not be afraid to try knew things. I encourage all women to do that. Mistakes are a way of growing and learning.
