Well hello everyone, I'm Jami.
There are quite a few new followers here on Lulu Mom and I just thought I'd introduce myself.
I'm working on following all of you back, and getting to know each of you.
But while I work on "meeting" you, I thought I'd let you get to know me.
I guess I should start with why I blog.
I've always been a writer. Ever since I figured out how to make my alphabet with a pencil, I have been writing. I would
For me blogging is a way to express myself. We all have a voice. Some to a huge audience, some to a small one, but it's there. And I truly believe God uses our stories and experiences speak to others in ways we can't imagine. And so I write. I write about things that are important to me.
I write not because I know it all, but because I'm learning as I go and this is a way to challenge myself to keep growing.
I am from Oklahoma but we now live in gorgeous Colorado!!
I married the man of my dreams 3 years ago. I married my best friend, my partner in crime and the hottest guy on the planet. He is so perfect and loving and he's a cop! Crap! So that means I kiss him goodbye every night and pray that God brings him home in one piece. Being a cop wife is challenging. Building a strong family with a crazy schedule is hard, but I like challenges. Recently he was one of the first responders in the Aurora shooting and that really threw our family for a loop. (Read more about that HERE)
So you'll find quite a bit about how we deal with the crazy lifestyle we lead.
I work outside the home part-time during the year and full time in the summer as an Aquatics Manager at Lifetime Fitness here in Colorado. Swimming has always been a passion for me so if I have to work this is the perfect job for me. I long for the day when I can stay home full time. But for now, I'm lucky to work at a job I love, helping kids learn to swim and watching them learn to compete in a pretty fantastic sport, if you ask me. I'm convinced I have a Michael Phelps and a Missy Franklin currently at my pool..... Give me a few years and I'll let you know.
Also, we have 3 Huskies! Yep 3- and they are a pretty huge part of our family!
So allow me to sum up, my husband works a crazy schedule at a job where he enjoys putting his life on the line, his wife also works outside the home, and we manage to do all this without daycare. Three Huskies and a 2 year old run amuck around our house but I really really love having a clean house, so basically it means I don't sit down until everyone is asleep. I believe in building a strong family and cooking family dinners. And I believe in writing it all down in a blog which seems kind of weird when I think about it. But there you go.
My life is exhausting, but who's isn't?
So come on now... let me know about you. And if you don't mind, let me steal some recipes and tutorials from you so I can seem pretty cool thanks to you!!! :)
