Hey everyone! I’m Christie and I live in Southern California. I have traveled a bunch and even lived in the Midwest for 5 years, but nothing compares to home in my mind! I am married to the best thing that has EVER happened to me and we have 2 kids with 1 on the way!
Me and My Man. My husband grew up in Manila, Philippines until he was 18 but he is from Southern California as well. He went to a small Christian college in Winona Lake, IN to play basketball and that is where we met! (Is it weird that our home towns are less than an hour apart but we ended up meeting in Indiana?) Don’t even ask how we both ended up going to college in Indiana…..that is a whole crazy story of its own. But the second I laid eyes on Joe, I made comments (jokingly of course) that I was going to marry him one day. I went after him….he resisted….I gave up and dated someone else….he got jealous….and here we are! We were just babies when we got married (22 years old) and we have been married 8 years this summer. He is the LOVE OF MY LIFE!! And if I sit and think about him too much I start to cry (But you will probably get to know that I cry easily!)
Elinor. My first born, my daughter, my heart. This little girl is such a light in this home. She is fun loving and lives everyday for the next fun thing planned. She is caring and her goal in life is to make sure everyone in the room is happy with her. She is sensitive and she cries at the drop of the pin but she is easily comforted with loving words and affirmation. She is wise beyond her years and she understands more than I ever would want her to understand!
Charley. My current baby, my son, my little love. My mom always says the this little guys is “such a lover” and that is the best way to describe him. He is quiet, independent, sweet but let’s not forget that he is STUBBORN! He doesn’t have many opinions, but when he does it is the battle of the century to win against him! Nobody can make me laugh like this little guy!
The Blog. I know my identity is in Christ Jesus. I know that he made me with the personality, passions, and skills that make me who I am and that He loves me this way. I believe that it is a good thing to be cute for my husband and to be an example to my kids. I want all my kids to grow up watching balanced mother who puts God above all else, puts her husband family as her priority, takes care of her body and still has an identity in her own right! This blog is a place for me to spill out my creative juices! It is just a place for me to get motivated about my own loves and skills. Always working on the beauty within, so that whatever beauty exudes externally is genuine, confident and secure in who I am.
