About Us



I am happily married to my high school sweet heart. He has been my best friend since we were teenagers. He is a teacher and a coach by day, and a college professor by night, so we don’t know whether to call him Doctor or Coach. He personally prefers Coach, and I think it suits him best.

We have been blessed with 4 beautiful kids, and love them dearly. We also have a highly energetic Golden Retriever named Petey that has become a 5th child. Like many parents, some days Coach and I think we have it together, some days we struggle to “make it happen,” and most days we look at each other and sigh, “Is it Bedtime Yet?”

I love Jesus and love my family. I love music and vacuum lines on the carpet. I love to snuggle up with a good book and a cup of hot tea. I love running, and enjoy hiking with my family. I love people.

I have a jewelry business that I am blessed to be able to work from my home. I am able to stay home and raise my children, as well as encourage and work with women each day. I love my work. Premier Designs Jewelry has been a huge blessing to us.

We are from the South and think it’s the best place on earth….a place where “people are darlin’, summer lasts forever, porches are wide, and words are long.” I love grits, gravy, and biscuits….and as for sweet tea, well; there just are not words…

Oh, and don’t let me forgot about the pecan pie…or chocolate covered pecans, or pecan pancakes…just yum!

Once upon a time, I worked as a nurse, so it is important to me to teach my family to take care of themselves and enjoy those decadent goodies in moderation. Since we are a busy family of 6, I am constantly looking for quick and easy healthy family friendly meals.

We raise our family in a Christian home filled with love and laughter. We follow God’s principles for our family and live by His standards. We have a rule to never go to bed angry with one another and to always forgive because we were forgiven.

We have a motto in our family WX6ST…It’s a symbol for our family that basically means…no matter what happens, no matter where we go, or what we do…we will all look out for one another and stick together as a team…we are a family and love one another unconditionally.

So snuggle up in your pajamas with a nice hot cup of tea. I hope this blog blesses you…makes you laugh, makes you cry, and just simply is an encouragement to you…
