I'm the wife of a Marine, mom to two beautiful kids, and a full time volunteer. Most of my time goes to either the kids' school or the the Navy Marine Corps Relief Society where I help out in their Thrift Shop. I'm also a stamper and a photographer. I would also love to be a horseback rider (again) but have no time!
