I am so excited to get to know you… I have met so many wonderful people from across the world through blogging and I’m happy to add you to that list!
So, to introduce myself, my name is Lacey….
… and I am a photographer-mama to three little boys, Gage, Cooper and Kaden. I am married to Matt, I still wonder to this day why I’ve been so blessed to have him as my husband. 🙂 We live in the country and enjoy a laid-back yet energy-filled lifestyle that may be unlike that of many. Living here was an adjustment for me at first, as I grew up in Seattle and was used to the 5 minute drive to get ANYWHERE. Now, an hour drive to anywhere is the norm. Occasionally, I dream of living in a big city or on the coast in a warmer climate, but this is home and it has become as much a part of me as the air I breathe.
I love the Lord and I celebrate His amazing creations. I do so by documenting His blessings – the everyday life with my family, that He gave me. My desire to do so sparked my love of scrapbooking, which lured me deep into photography. And both pulled me into blogging. And now, here we are.
I blog to document life, to share my photos, and to gain perspective on motherhood. Writing about our experiences puts a spin on the events that simply living it just doesn’t do. Sharing the stories of my boys can make me laugh, when living through the story made me want to cry with frustration! I love that about writing and journaling. And I love sharing those experiences on this blog, so you can laugh with me or shed some light on situations. Or to learn from my mistakes or to reflect on when you went through the same thing with your little ones.
A few more tidbits about me, so you REALLY feel like you know me… I have a thing for my space-heater: the sound and warmth soothes me! I graduated from Washington State University, with a degree in Organizational Communication, a week before getting married. Thanks to my degree, my boys can’t talk their way out of anything! HA! We’re homeschooling our boys because (A) we want to, and (B) the nearest school would be an hour long bus ride. In my home, a home-cooked-meal is a must at the end of the day – be it by my hands or my husband’s. I REALLY enjoy HGTV and the Food Network! Fixer Upper is my favorite show right now, even though I have no desire to remodel an old house! While I do love being cuddled up in the house, we are also outdoor people. Hiking, walking, barbecuing, camping… gardening. I get a jolt of vitality when my hands are working in my gardens… ahh… there is nothing quite like getting outside… not many things make me feel closer to God than experiencing the wonder of nature and seeing the joy it brings to all 4 of my guys.
I hope this little blurb helps you feel at home here. I hope you want to come back and check out what life with country boys is like … and I hope you’ll let me know I’m not alone in the craziness that is motherhood!
Enjoy… and thanks for stopping by!
