A Simple Introduction

I’ve never done anything like this before. Honestly, I’m not sure where to begin. I am not a great writer, and my list of big words is minimal. All I can say is that one of my very favorite ways to express myself is by simply writing it down (or in this case, typing).

I am a 28 year old wife and mother living in beautiful San Diego, California. My husband’s name is Aaron. He is the most wonderful human being on the planet. I am so thankful I met him when I did. We married in November of 2013, and are the parents of two BEAUTIFUL children, Shiloh and Solomon! Our daughter was born August of 2014. She is such a pretty little girl, but she is also highly intelligent, funny, kind, stubborn, and sometimes a misbehaved wild child, and I wouldn’t change a thing about her! She is my bestie.

Our little man was born February of 2016. He is a hungry little mamas boy, and I love it. He gave me a huge, mouth wide open smile for the first time today, and my heart officially melted in a puddle on the floor. My kiddos are perfect in every way, because they are mine. I’m sure if any of you spent a day with them you’d think to yourself “there is nothing perfect about those kids.”  Perhaps you are right, but I will always see them that way.

We also have a furry, 4 legged child named Lexi. She was our first baby. We brought her home the week after we got back from our honeymoon. Her breed is Goldendoodle, and she is the BEST dog I’ve ever been around.

We moved from the central coast 1 year after we were married. My husband started his own solar business, and it was located down here. I’m sure you can see, we like to “go big or go home.”  You know, start a business, get married, get pregnant right away, move, and then get pregnant again. Sometimes I ask myself what the heck were we thinking? Our life is so stressful, why do we do this to ourselves? And then I look at these sweet baby faces and realize that it’s all in God’s plan for us, and we are so thankful for Him and His sense of humor.

I chose to name my blog my peace in chaos, because with all I said above, I’m sure you can imagine that things get a bit chaotic around our house. As it turns out though, both of our sweet babies’ names mean “peace.”  And through all our bad days, they are my reminder from the Lord to just soak it all in and enjoy His peace. Enjoy His presence. My blessings come through Him. And even though my children can be a lot of work, they are my home. They are where I find my peace. They are my world. Plus, at the end of the day these children do {eventually} fall asleep, and then they look like peaceful little angels. Am I right?

Well, there’s a little background on me. Both kids are waking up and screaming at me, so I suppose this is where I come up with some witty catch phrase that I leave everytime I end a post. I’ll have to get back to you on that one!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know me a little more. My plan with this blog is to just get it all out. Like a digital, virtual diary. Some posts may be boring and light, and others may be very heavy. I don’t know where this will go, or what I will be comfortable with, I just want to search my heart and find “my peace in chaos.”  I also pray that my life and my story will in some way show how exceptionally extraordinary God is. His grace is sufficient. He has brought me from the pit of despair on MANY occasions, and I have it all because of Him. Because He chose me. And He chose all of you too. His love is infinite, and His grace and mercy  meet you where you are, no matter where that may be. Let that soak in.


By grace through faith,
