About Me

Jesus Girl | Wife | Mamma | Truth Teller

Hubbz, My Champion: I’m married to a supah-fly Italian dude who shaves his head and rocks the sexiest beard on the planet. We met at a gym when I was 19 and he was 27… He is the macaroni to my cheesiness, the ginger ale to my Jameson and the belayer to my metaphorical rock climber ways. He isn’t a fan of tattoos and I have an art collection on my skin. He prefers to do life at a leisurely pace and I prefer to do it in an all out sprint.  He likes to just be and I like to just do. Most of the time we meet in the middle and that’s where the magic happens.

Our Son: After a long journey with infertility (you can read our story through my blog) Hubbz and I created the most amazing little human ever. On a beautiful October day God placed a miracle into our arms. Our son is proof that the heart really can beat outside of the body. He is also proof that we serve an incredible God who offers abundantly more than we can ask or imagine. For this child I have prayed and the Lord has given me that which I have asked of him. 1 Samuel 1: 27

Our Fur-Baby: I had a 5 lb. Maltese, Bella Ricotta. Yes, her name literally meant beautiful cheese. Her name is what happens when you relinquish middle name veto power to lock down incontrovertible rights to the first name. Despite her name and incontinence issues, she had the confidence of Rin-Tin-Tin. Her slight identity crises never bothered her though because in her mind, she was sure of the fact that she was an 85 lb German Shepherd. My tiny fur-ball of energy taught me more in 14 years about responsibility, unconditional love and pure acceptance than I could have learned in a lifetime of lessons. She was a gigantic part of my 20’s and early 30’s and she knew all my secrets. She was a complete Diva and I couldn’t have loved her more.

About my Heart: I can be a total rough around the edges tomboy and an all out Diva… once in a while, the two happen at the Exact. Same. Time. I wear my heart on my sleeve, have a terrible poker face and I believe people are inherently good. I fell in love with the amazing city of Rome when I lived there and New York City captivates me with intrigue. My heart melts for animals and I try really hard to be a Jesus Girl… in the same breath, I lust after aviator sunglasses, glamorous stilettos, delicious sushi, Patrick Dempsey and Tim Tebow. I’m captivated by the thought that maybe one day I can do something that will change world… or at least my humble little place in it.
