Most of you know that I did not renew my contract for another year of teaching at St. John’s because I want to go ahead and make Clarksville my permanent home. I cried my little eyes out when I broke the news to the administration (I’m so professional…) and my fellow middle school teachers, but I really had a weirdly strong peace about the situation that I’d find another job or something to do to pass the time until Jamie gets home in December or February. I was really taking a big leap of faith leaving my job because it’s an AMAZING place to work, and it’s crucial that I find something to keep me busy during the fall semester.
Hi! I’m Erica, and I absolutely adore sharing my life on this website with you! I come here almost daily to blab about all of the things related to being a regular wife and mother in today’s ever-evolving society. I share about our new home, what’s on our kitchen table, what we’re hanging in our closets, where we’re traveling to next, my crazy 5 a.m. work outs, how I make time for girlfriends, our faith, and much more. We always have a lot of balls in the air and somewhat thrive on the chaos. I believe in the power of story-telling as a form of inspiration and entertainment, so I’m here to do both! I was born and raised in north Alabama and recently re-planted roots here again after my husband transitioned out of the Army (he is now in the Reserve and it’s going so well!) I’m a super proud mom to two little girls (ages 5 and 2) who seem to be the stars of the show around here (for good reason – they’re pretty great!) I’m so glad you found me and are here reading! I hope we can get to know each other here on the blog as well as Facebook and/or Instagram. xoxo
