The rundown - Part 1...

A side note before I begin: 
Though I plan to be myself from the very start of this blog, I also know that I want this to be more than just a "what I did today" kind of thing (though there will be "what I did today" posts). I don't want to post just for the sake of posting but I do want to open a little window into the world that is "me", however simple, complex, or at times ridiculous it may be.

THAT being said, but before going much further, I'm going to take a few posts to introduce you to myself and my family who will most frequently occupy the pages of this humble blog. (I'll post separately about each of those mentioned below so I'll be brief in my description of them here)...

First up... me...
My name is Emily (a name I have always loved having). I am currently 27 years old (almost 28), and I am many things...
I am a God-fearing woman and I want my life to be a total reflection of that. Without Him I am nothing and I own Him all the praise and thanks I can muster (and then some) for my family, my friends, my talents, and a myriad of other things, not the least of these - giving me breath daily.

I am a wife, married for the past 8 years to the most wonderful man in all of creation. He is my best friend and I cannot imagine spending my life with anyone else.








I am a mother to 3 of the most beautiful little women ever to grace this planet. See for yourself...












I am an artist - dabbling with different forms and mediums till finally settling into what brings me greatest joy and satisfaction - Jewelry design and fabrication. Please know that I am not intending to "toot my own horn" but I feel I must say that I absolutely love what I do and am quite proud of the pieces I create as well as myself for having created them. It's probably a widely known adage but I once heard someone say that if you are struggling to figure out what it is you want to do in life, close your eyes and think about what it is that you most enjoy doing - what is that one thing that you would do for free - and find a way to get paid doing that very thing. I am so thankful to have found that thing I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I want to do, career-wise, for the rest of my days. 

I am a friend and as many of you can say as well I'm sure, I have the very best friends anyone can ask for. Some have come and gone throughout the years but those who have remained are true treasures and more of a support and joy for me than they'll ever know. I'm one lucky gal and I can only pray that I am able to provide them with whatever it is they need from me even a fraction as well as they do for me. I won't name them all here and now but I'm sure they will pop up from time to time within the pages of this blog.

That's all I'm going to say for now. Any missing pieces will be placed as the archive of this blog is filled over time. Thank you for reading!

Happily,
Emily
