My name is Beth.
I have an awesome husband, Keith, who I met in 2007 during my summer internship from college.
I became a mom when I fell in love with my husband and his sweet little twin boys, Caleb and Caden. We lived in a tiny apartment in a city with the twin's half brother.
Keith proposed in December of 2008.
We decided to leave the city (yay!) and move closer to work in the summer of 2009. The boys half brother went back to live with his mom. We bought a house in a small rural village closer to my hometown, and we got a kitten, Otis.
We were married in September of 2009.
Life was grand as a family of four, but we wanted more children. We had a miscarriage early in 2010. I started blogging after that as a place for me to put my thoughts. I started running after that too and fell in love with it. I trained for my first race, and kept running towards a goal for awhile.
The summer of 2010 allowed Keith the opportunity to fulfill a dream of owning salt water fish with the addition of our 150 gallon aquarium.
We decided to get a dog, Belle.
We had another miscarriage in August of 2011.
I started graduate school to work toward my MBA in September of 2011.
Then in November of 2011, we found out I was pregnant again.
We welcomed our baby girl, Elinore, in July of 2012.
In June of 2013 we rescued a stray kitten from the ditch across the street and added Barney to our family.
In March of 2014 we learned we were expecting again!
In July of 2014, I finished my masters degree work!
In December of 2014, we welcomed Ruth into our family with love!
Aside from all that, I work full time as a property and casualty insurance underwriter for farms and commercial agribusiness. I love Jesus and am active in our church. The boys are involved in the church, scouts, 4H and karate, and they keep us moving! Elinore is loving swim lessons, and I'm sure Ruth will one day have activities of her own too.
