On April 26, 2011 I met a man who would lead me to an experience that would change my life. His name is Darrell Scott.
Darrell lost his middle child, Rachel Joy, on April 20th, 1999 when two students entered Columbine High School and opened fire. Rachel was the first student shot and killed that day. She was sitting outside enjoying lunch with a friend, and Eric and Dylan shot her before entering the school doors.
You can’t watch the news without hearing about bullying and how to stop it, but do students even know what bullying is these days!? After speaking to 75,000 students I can tell you – NO!
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
