Hey y’all! Well here it goes, my very first blog. Hopefully I don’t sound like a rambling loon. I figured new state, new city, might as well try something new!
You see that girl right there? The one with the awesome Harry Potter Gilmore Girl mash up t-shirt?!? Well, THAT’S me!
Clearly the t-shirt gives away two things that I can’t live without, which are the fun, magical, make believe world of Harry Potter AND the fast talking, super sassy Gilmore Girls. I am Lindsay, mother of two, wife to an amazing veteran, crazy craft lady, and Harry Potter loving, fast talking, Gilmore girl obsessed pizza lover!
So, a bit more about me. I will try to keep it short and simple because, well, I am a chatty Cathy!! When I say pizza lover, I could probably eat it three to maybe five times a week and never get sick of it because there’s so many options and so many places you can buy pizza from! When I say I love Harry Potter, I have the books, all the movies with behind the scenes extras, and of course the audio books for those times when I’m driving and I can’t read the actual books or watch the movies. Then of course there’s my crazy Gilmore Girls obsession! I have the iconic Luke’s diner t-shirt to go with my “I smell snow” t-shirt. I watch the full series at least 4 times a year. I mean what better way is there to pass hours of editing than having the iPad open to your favorite show?!? When GG a Year in the Life came out, I sat in bed with my mom and we watched the whole 6 1/2-hour series. My good friend Jessica and I still talk about those last four words. I mean come on; that’s SO NOT an ending, Amy. We need MORE!
That’s just a little about me. I feel like the most important stuff is what I am going to tell you next because if not for what’s happened over the last 14 years, I wouldn’t be the person I am now.
(Don't judge my old point and shoot/cell phone photos!)
I was lucky enough to meet the love of my life when I was young. I was a senior in high school when this tall, lanky boy showed up in my small town. He was staying with his sister while waiting to head off to boot camp. After leaving for boot camp, we stayed connected with letters and a few phone calls. We did fall out of touch for about a year but we happened to reconnect while he was home for a visit. The rest I guess you could say is history.
We have now been married for 11 years, moved to four different states, have two AMAZING babies, and experienced more big life changing events in those 11 years than most people have their whole lives.
Jon was recently medically retired from the military and we made our largest move yet. It was quite a shock when we found out Jon would be getting out of the military six years sooner than we expected. Of course we had a plan, but nothing goes according to plan in the military. When Plan A didn’t happen, we moved on to Plan B. When Plan B failed, it was on to Plan C. When Plan C changed, we were back to Plan A! But I digress. When everything was said and done, we decided that heading back to Michigan for our children to be around family for the first time in their lives was what we were going to do. We settled in the very charming small town of Dundee, Michigan.
Now here we are! Our story has come full circle. We’re now back in Michigan where we fell in love and where it all started. We’ve gone from Michigan to Georgia, then there was a jump across the river from Georgia to Alabama. Alabama, where we bought our first home, is where I officially opened my first studio and where we brought both of our children home. Then we went all the way to North Carolina, where our “life plan” got temporarily derailed. Finally, we were back on the track straight up back to the mitten state!
Of course, so many huge events happened between then and now. If you stick around and continue to check out the blog, I will fill you in on some of the details. That’s it for now!
(Lol anyone else get a Gossip Girl vibe there?!?)
