I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

Montana Summer

Hello to all.  Long time since I have been on to blog.  Well things have been busy around here.  We just got back Sunday night from a wonderful three weeks in Montana with family.  Oh how I love Montana in the summer.  This time around it was especially hard for me to come home.  I think non stop fun with family for three weeks is what did it to me.  I was tearful every time I said goodbye to family.  As my sister say jokingly, "you are cold inside."  Really I am, things don't bother me and I really don't cry that much.  Even when I was pregnant I think I cried once.  But now I have cried everyday since I got home, oh well.  I think once I get back into a routine things will even out.  Here are some pictures from our fabulous trip.  Here are a LOT of pictures, and more to come.  I took 600, but I promise I will narrow it down!

Jonah loved Penne as long as someone was holding him!

Fun on the slide and Papa and Muzzies.  The kids had a blast sliding, reminds me of when I was little and all the fun I had with my sisters!

Attempt number 92, trying to get everyone to smile at the same time.  There were a few tears by this point!

  1. Glad you had a good time with your family Amy! It's hard leaving family...my parents are here visiting and I'm already prepared to cry when they go home. :) I like the pictures you posted...it looked like a good time with your fam. :)

    1. Yes it was such a good time. I think God so much for my parents. They are a true example of what a Godly marriage looks like and we had such a great time all home together. Enjoy your time with you parents. It is so hard to say goodbye sometimes crying makes it better! Hope you are all well!
