Ahhh, welcome 2018!  You've been a fun ride so far.  January brought all things back-to-school, back-to-normalcy and back-to-routine Sunday slow-days after a hectic holiday season.  I'm always grateful for the hustle that the holidays bring for my photography business but in turn, I'm just as grateful for the break at the end of it when January hits.  This month, we found out that Baby Ruth #3 is a BOY!!!  We are so shocked and even more excited.  Now, we get to start nursery planning and buying bowties and overalls and stripes!  After two girls, it's a whole new world to me!  ;-) 


2018 ... If you're anything like this month, I think we're going to get along juuuuuust fine!


Inspired by Amy Hale (@amyhale) on Instagram, I fell in love with her monthly current posts.  Tweaked and adapted to fit me, I am excited to have a systematic way to track my growth.


Every month, I plan to answer the same questions and keep track of my walk in faith, motherhood and entrepreneurship.


Without further adieu, this is ALL ABOUT ME for the month of January 2018 ...
