Well hello everyone, I'm Jami.
Why do 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.
Plus I have met some pretty incredible women throughout the writing journey of mine. So although it can be a pretty time consuming effort, you all make it completely worth it!
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?
