"You find you are made up of bits and pieces of all who have ever touched your life and you are more because of them and would be less if they had not touched you..."

When I got pregnant with Matthew, I found an online group of women on a website called ivillage, an expecting club. We were all due June of 2005. I can't remember now if I stumbled across it or if I went looking for it. All I know is that they were my first online friends and they have been through so much with me. I adore them. (What does Jen say? "Real feelings, real friends.") I refer to them as JJG, which is short for June Jungle Gym, the name we gave ourselves a long time ago. We are now mothers to four year olds and continue to be friends, both on our board and on facebook. And, in a few lucky cases, real life friends*.
Over the years, some talented people have made me signatures (siggy's) that I use on the board. I'm going to share this one with you today, and will share some more as I find them. Cute, huh?
I am many people. I am the loving wife to Cory (the captain). I am the proud momma to Cole, Matthew (Matty), and Jack, and now...a daughter, Clara. My kids are my life. I am a Realtor, living the dream of being able to work from home so I can raise my kids. These things are important to me: my faith, my family, my world, my friends. I believe in surrounding myself with good people. I believe in good energy and teaching my kids to love. I believe that we all want the same basic things in life, although we sometimes think the road to them is different.
I love to read, be with my kids, my quiet evenings with the captain, who never tires of me talking his ear off. That I got blessed with such an amazing husband is nothing short of a gift from God.
I am very blessed!
