December 29, 2020 in Sentiments - No Comments

Sharing our visual “scrapbook” for 2020. One of my goals for this blog is for it to be a virtual scrapbook of our adventures for Callie.  Something that she can look back on and be reminded of all the love,…

Until You’ve…….

September 23, 2020 in Lifestyle, Sentiments - No Comments

Until you’ve strapped a bullet proof vest over your spouse. Until you’ve kissed them goodbye in the morning and didn’t know if they would come home safe. Until you’ve attended a funeral for a coworker who died in the line…

About Me

About Me

Jaime

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
