Influential Women

I'm so excited to be a part of the Influence Community!  I'd been thinking about joining and I'm so glad I pulled the trigger and did it.

Today I'm joining a group of women who are part of this amazing network of encouragement and sharing a few things about myself along with my favorite picture of myself.

1. I'm a wife to my amazing husband and loving it everyday!  When we were married in October 2012, I also became an Anna Belle (we don't use step) to the two most precious boys, ages 3 and 5.  My sweet family is more than I ever imagined and unconventional in a sense, and I thank God daily for His guidance and grace and weaving our stories together in a way that only He could do.

2. I love to run, smile, talk, read, learn, cook, dream, grow, pin, plan, journal and have fun.  I'm also quite hard on myself and push myself to be the best I can in every role I have: wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, employee, runner and daughter of the King.

3. I've made my share of mistakes, mishaps and have some misadventures, but mostly, I'm thankful to my Savior for an abundance of grace and mercy.  I look for the good in every thing, every one and every situation.  I'm an optimist for sure.

As a newer member, one of the things I've discovered I love most {thus far} is reading about how so many of us feel the same way about certain things and share the same struggles and hopes.  It's an encouragement to get to know others that are "like you."  I can't wait to dig in deeper and get to know more fabulous and encouraging women!
