About Me

My name is Shelley. I am a wife and a mother. My family believes in Jesus and each other.
 My husband, Chris, and I are both home health nurses, but we prefer being at our home with our three girls. Obviously, we would like to be at home laughing and eating, but evidently we have to work to feed ourselves. Oh well.
I enjoy reading and painting over all hobbies. I prefer acrylic paint, but enjoy mixed media projects. I was a better artist in high school but I am trying to brush up my skills. 
My love of books stems from the moment I learned to read. I find myself choosing between art and reading several times a week. The books usually win. I find particularly difficult when I want to watch a movie with Chris or the whole fam, but am unable to read and follow along with the movie. Really?! Can my brain not do both? I like thrillers, memoirs, historical fiction, some fantasy (well, A Song of Ice and Fire is about it for that genre). I do not love romance novels. Luckily, I get that at home. Thanks, babe!!
 I have a love for music as most people do. Folk and singer/songwriter have become my favorite over the past few years. I still maintain a relationship with classic country and classic rock. 
As I stated initially, we are a Christian family. We are Catholic and never have I had such a foundation in my beliefs and my relationship with God as I have in the past few years.  I feel fortunate to have found the man that I have and been able to learn from him and his family. This is a trying earth in which we reside. There is nothing more important than God and family. Others will fade away; these will not.
