Jesus Girl | Wife | Mamma | Truth Teller
Hubbz, My Champion: I’m married to a supah-fly Italian uomo 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… one look in his ocean blue eyes and I was toast. He is the funniest, most loyal, compassionate man of integrity that I have ever met, and he loves me with fierce-intensity and a valiant heart. He leads our home and family well because he allows our God to direct his steps. He is the belayer to my metaphorical rock climber ways and my life is better because of him.
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, our God placed a miracle into our arms. Our son is proof that a Mama’s heart really can beat outside of her body. He is also proof that we serve an incredible God who offers abundantly more than we can ask or imagine. Lui é il mio sole, la mia luna e tutte le mie stelle. 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 the boss. 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 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. I try really hard to be a Jesus Girl… in the same breath, I lust after aviator sunglasses, glamorous stilettos, delicious sushi 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.
