So I got all caught up in writing my first blog post 😁 that I totally forgot that I should probably do an “about me” post so y’all could get to know a little more about me!!
My name is Meredith & I live in North Carolina. I just turned the big 3-0 in September, which surprisingly wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! Actually I had pretty much the best birthday every this year, but more about that later!
I am married to my high school sweetheart, well kinda I guess. He graduated the year before I went to high high school but we started dating my sophomore year when I was 15! We’ve been together ever since, almost 15 years and this coming January we will be celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary!
I am a Momma to the two best kids in the world! No seriously, they are the absolute best! They are my best friends, my favorite people ever and my life lines! I cannot imagine my life if I were not their Momma!
My oldest, my sweet boy, is Hunter and he is 9! Not really sure how that happened, somehow I blinked and all the sudden he’s not a little baby anymore! It breaks my heart how grown up he has become, but luckily he is a Momma’s boy (in a good way) and we are still super close! I hope it always stays that way! Coolest 9 year old you’ll meet, but he’s the most genuinely kind and sweet boy also. He loves everyone and has a heart full of compassion for people! Pretty much a genius as well, I’m telling you, this kid is gonna change the world!
My littlest one, my sweet baby girl, Hannah, who is 5, but literally thinks she’s going on 15! She too somehow has grown so fast, but seems like it was even faster than her brother. I don’t know if it’s because she’s the last one or what but these last few years have went by so quick! She is super duper smart, funny, kind, caring and loving but she also has this other side that, well let’s just say, I’m definitely getting payback from all my years as a little rebel (says my mom 🙄). I cannot wait to see the amazing things she does as well!
I am a stay-at-home mom and I have been since I was pregnant with Hunter. When I was a little girl, my teacher went around the room asking what we wanted to be when we grew up, when she got to me I said I wanted to be a Mom. She then said that’s not what she meant, what job did I want to have when I was a grown up. Again I said a Mom. That’s all I have ever wanted to be! My mom was a great mom (still is) and I’ve always wanted to be as good as a mom as her to my own kids!
I have been very blessed with a husband who knows how important that role is to me and has made it possible for me to stay home with my babies for the last 10 years, even when it wasn’t easy.
I have worked from home for my husbands uncle for about 8 years, pretty much just for spending money for the kids and I. But without that, I don’t know if I would have been able to stay home all these years. It’s nice to have my OWN money. 😝
I am a huge animal lover! I have 15 chickens, 6 ducks, a rabbit (I had two but one just passed away a few days ago 😢), 2 potbelly pigs and a dog. I love them so much and I’m glad my kids get to grow up having all these different types of animals!
I love to travel, I am obsessed with the idea of selling everything we own, buying a bus and traveling around the country and then the world! If I could figure out a way to pay for it all, I would already be on that! I just love exploring new places, and I want to go and see as many as I possibly can!
We are a very close little family. We don’t really do anything that our kids can’t go do with us! We spend all of our time together and I am so thankful for that! We love the outdoors. The mountains are our home away from home. Every time we go there we say, one day we will move up there! But we also say the same thing every time we go to the beach! We love the beach, so much!
Some of my favorite hobbies are playing with my kids, backpacking, hiking, camping, exploring, gold panning, metal detecting, swimming, kayaking, fishing, hunting, photography, crafts, reading, writing and traveling.
I am obsessed with Walt Disney World and everything Disney! We went for the first time last fall and now I’m planning our next trip for the spring! I’m so excited!!!! I loved all of the Disney movies growing up and still do!! I’ve even been thinking about getting a Disney tattoo. 🤔
I love writing, so I really hope I can do a good job blogging and I also would like write children’s books! That’s my goal over the next year, my 2019 New Years Resolution, is to get one book finished!
Well, I don’t really think there is a whole lot left that I haven’t told you guys about me. So hopefully you learned some interesting things and want to keep coming back and reading what I have to write!!!! ❤️
