Welcome to my story.
My name is Emily, and I believe that every life is it’s own unique story. Stories explore the essence of what it means to be human. Every season of life brings a new chapter, a new setting, new characters. Every experience brings new themes, new truths, new conflicts. For these reasons, I find the lives of ordinary people to be extraordinary. This blog is where I document my story.
My hope is that you will see life through my eyes while you’re here. You’ll see my truth, my values, and how my story unfolds. I hope it will inspire you to embrace your own special story and to take a closer look at the little pieces that contribute to your big picture.
I think you’ll quickly discover a few things I love most:
A little more about me:
I grew up in Wisconsin, where I met my high school sweetheart. Growing up, I wanted to live anywhere but Wisconsin. However, the further away I roam, the more I miss my home.
I’ve also lived in Iowa (where I earned my degree in English Education), Ohio, and New Mexico. In fact, I just moved to New Mexico in May! Why do I move so often? Because my husband is in the Air Force.
I was a high school Language Arts teacher for nearly 2 years before I decided to transition out of teaching. (I profoundly respect teachers; they are true warriors.) I sometimes joke that if I could go back in time, I’d pick up a degree in PR & Communications. I’m in the beginning stages of this career transition, and I’m excited to see what opportunities come my way.
