I was born in Springfield, Missouri and have lived here my entire life. Although I love to travel, and have a bit of wanderlust in me, I can’t imagine not calling Springfield home. My travels have taken me to almost every state (one of my personal goals is to visit each state), Canada, the Bahamas, Mexico, and most recently, Italy. My dear husband, Robert, shares this love of travel with me. It’s so nice to return to places where one of us has visited and share our memories with each other and make new ones.
When I’m not traveling or planning a trip (something I tend to do to the nth degree), my hobby or obsession of choice is knitting and spinning. My best friend, Michelle, taught me to knit in 2005 when we visited her in Alaska. I’ve been a yarn snob ever since, and am completely hooked. Robert is wonderfully supportive and never complains when we’re on a trip and I pull out Google maps of local yarn stores in the area.
Although traveling and knitting are important facets of my life, they are not the most important aspects. First and foremost I am a Christian, a born-again, bible-believing child of the one true God. Living for Jesus is what defines who I am, and I am truly grateful for His blessings. I am blessed beyond measure to be Robert’s wife, and I have a wonderful family and many close friendships.
