My name is Tonya. I’m a stay-at-home-mom with two beautiful children. I have green eyes and freckles. I love to bake. I love to read. I love taking photos of my kids. I’m very opinionated. I’m not a dog person. I hate feet.
My extended family is just that…extended. There are TONS of us. The below picture isn’t even all my siblings/families…and the family gets bigger from there. We’re loud. Really loud. Actually, I think my volume gauge is completely out of whack from growing up as a member of my family. I love them.
Zack is my husband. He was born without a sweet tooth. You can probably imagine how I feel about this obvious deficiency. Aside from this horrible fact, he is perfect for me. He says I move 20% too fast. Or at least, 20% faster than everyone else. He also claims I think that much faster. I’m a logistical genius. Which comes in very handy when trying to organize/plan events with such a large family. Nothing I do is ever small.
I grew up in the same house, with the same friends, attending the same church for 15 years. My parents are as madly in love with each other now as they were when they met in high-school. I have always known (as do they) that they aren’t perfect, but they are just about as perfect as parents ever could be. I realize that now (more than ever) that I have kids of my own.
I love life. I love that every day is a new opportunity to learn something, add joy to someone else’s life, be yourself and live to your fullest capacity.
